Jamal Muhammad School: Bethune-Cookman
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 233 40: 4.80 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Former Ohio State player who's been used
at outside linebacker and fullback. Starter the
past two seasons, recording 38/2.5/0 as a senior
after a career-high 103 tackles the prior year.
Positives: Explosive run defending linebacker who
plays with a good degree of discipline. Reads
the action, quickly fills the gaps and breaks
down well. Keeps the play in front of him and
flies around the field working to get involved in
Negatives: Undersized, gets caught in the
trash moving laterally and slowed from blocks.
Does not play with great body control and easily
knocked off balance. Marginal skills in pass
Analysis: A hard-working defender
who lacks the pure size/speed numbers for the
next level, Muhammad may be best suited as a
backup in the 34 defense but must make his
mark on special teams.
