Jonas Mouton to the San Diego Chargers: 2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Aron GlatzerAnalyst IApril 30, 2011

The Michigan outside linebacker’s stock was thought to be on the decline following an
underwhelming NFL Combine where he ran a 4.87 40-yard dash.

However, Mouton wound up being selected in the second round.

Following three lackluster seasons, he posted an extremely productive senior season, in which he recorded 117 tackles.

Has had maturity questions after a suspension in 2009, where he punched Notre
Dame center Eric Olsen.

According to Sideline Scouting,

“Has a good initial pop on contact, can deliver the big hit at times... Does a good job driving his feet while tackling, breaks down well and squares up to his target... Is not afraid to take on blockers and remove them from the play, is aggressive at attacking linemen head-on to cause congestion at the line... Can be seen lining up at several positions, has the potential to play strongside backer in the NFL, although coverage skills will need to improve a bit... Has a pretty good motor, will get downfield fast in pursuit of receivers running after the catch...
Turns hips pretty well when dropping into coverage, appears to be an effective zone
defender, displays pretty good instincts when the ball is in the air... Pretty good instincts, matched with his ability to flow with plays and wrap up effectively, he has potential to be a fairly productive player in the NFL.”
