2. Deep-ball skills
Do you think the 44% completion rate allowed as a junior and 49% for his career is impressive? How about last season he allowed just four completions of ten yards or more last season. He was targeted 31 times deep and allowed four receptions, a 13% completion rate. To put that into perspective, C.J. Henderson allowed 12 receptions on 25 attempts ten yards down the field or more. That is a 48% completion rate. He is worse at allowing deep passes than Jaylon Johnson is in any area of the field.
Jeffrey Okudah allowed nine receptions on 29 targets. A 31% completion rate is more reasonable, and the Big 10 and the SEC see better quarterbacks, but Johnson faced Justin Herbert and had a much better downfield success rate than the higher drafted corners.
Okudah allowed a 46% completion rate on all passes last year, a number very similar to Jaylon Johnson. Okudah and Henderson have the physical upside a bit higher than Johnson, but Johnson is a player who should be right with these two as prospects.
