Scouting Report: Strengths
  • James has long arms that allow him to survive as a pass protector on the edge, and James typically plays with good balance.
  • Dips shoulder and moves his feet to get outside leverage when needed. Strong and low coming out of his stance, effective in short-yardage situations.
  • Shows good quickness and flexibility on reach blocks, and he has enough range to get out as a puller.
  • Plays with natural leverage and has the strength to anchor against the bull rush. He also packs a violent initial punch that can stand up pass rushers.
  • Has the functional strength to hold up against the bull rush, and he shows exceptionally quick and precise hands.
  • Uses his hands well, with good hand placement to maximize his powerful punch. James shows impressive coordination between his upper and lower body when moving in pass protection.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Often gets too high in his sets, sacrificing some of his power, and James doesn’t show great coordination between his upper and lower body when sliding back in pass protection.
  • Clearly more comfortable moving forward than sliding back as a protector.
  • As a pass protector, he gets caught reaching and lunging when matched up against quickness.

*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.
