Scouting Report on Jawuan James

  • Foot QuicknessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Has excellent height with long arms and a wide powerbase. James has plenty of room to fill out and add weight and strength in the upper body. His frame will easily hold 320 pounds. James should physically remind fans of Florida State offensive tackle Zebrie Sanders.
Needs improvement: Right now, he is a bit light in the pants and lacks pop. He must add some upper body strength and fill out. James must become more physical while run blocking. Right now he relies on athleticism and finesse.
Most impressive: This potential giant has excellent lateral movement and looks like a basketball player playing defense. He also has tremendous growth potential and a long wing span which make him an ideal left offensive tackle at the next level.
Conclusion: Currently, he is very raw and is possibly two years away from any meaningful time at the next level. He does possess a lot of potential and natural ability and his long-term future is very bright. Look for him to be a two- to three-year starter with NFL potential.
