Jacksonville Jaguars Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 4 - Pick Number: 106 (JAX)

A former rugby player, Jay plays with an extremely high motor and is a high effort player that is surprisingly athletic for a big guy. A versatile player that can play in a variety of different schemes, and one which is effective against both the pass and the run, A consistent performer for the Trojans he decided to opt out of the 2020 season to prepare for the draft.  He does not have monster stats and there are questions as to his consistency and that will likely keep him out of the first round.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
