Draft Profile: Bio
Mark Pope attended Miami Southridge Senior High School and was Following high school, Pope opted to join Miami after being heavily recruited.

In 2019 as a freshman Pope saw action in just one game and played a total of one snap at wide receiver for the Hurricanes. He recorded no tackles, no assists, while adding no stops. In coverage Pope notched up no pass breakups, no interceptions, and an elite QB rating when targetted of .0.

As a sophomore in 2021 he played in just one game and logged 12 snaps for the Hurricanes. He made no tackles, no assists, and had no stops. In coverage he totaled no pass breakups, no interceptions, and a disapointing QB rating when targetted of 118.8.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s a better tackler than his size might suggest.
  • Fluid mover with decent speed and his length allows him to cover effectively downfield
  • Instincts are outstanding, and Pope does an excellent job in route recognition.
  • Trusts his eyes with very good awareness. Has very good reaction skills to break quickly on the ball.
  • Can get up on the line of scrimmage and deliver a solid punch early in routes, then use that quickness to shadow, or back off and close quickly when the ball comes out
  • He’s tall-framed with long arms to match. With his powerful hands, straight-line speed, and fluidity in his hips, turning and chasing downfield shouldn’t be a problem.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Gets sloppy with his backpedal when playing off-man and seems to lack the instincts to close on the ball.
  • Will slip off tackles and needs to finish more consistently.
  • Grab-and-drag tackler who will struggle to make plays against running backs, and he’ll be susceptible to some catch-and-run plays against bigger receivers.
