Josh Jobe is next in the line of great Alabama cornerbacks. Although he may not be as elite as some of his predecessors, he has the length and look of a top cornerback.

Jobe does a great job of using his 6'1" frame in the run game. He's physical when taking on blocks and is quick to get hands on and disengage. He isn't afraid to stick his nose in on tackles and throw his body around.

When playing the pass, Jobe likes to get his hands on receivers as they work downfield. He plays with low pad level and looks to fight through the receiver's hands when attacking the ball.

Though he lacks top-end quickness and lateral movement skills, Jobe looks to often play in press. He has skills to play in both man and zone, but due to his lack of top-end speed along with his difficulty locating the ball downfield, he may be best suited to play in a zone scheme.

Jobe may need some more time to develop before stepping into a starting role in the NFL, but he has most of the prerequisites to make an easy transition to the pros.

GRADE: 6.9 (Potential Role Player - 4th Round)
