 5'10 3/8"

WEIGHT: 184 lbs



—Tenacious player who fights for his position in the run and pass game.

—Has very good timing with the ability to play through the reception point. He had great on-ball production over the past two seasons.

—Good breaking ability. Best when breaking forward.



—Top-end speed is a question. He struggles to keep up with faster players. Gets overextended and reaches.

—Below-average lateral movement in press. Struggles to keep leverage.

—Below-average blow delivery in tackling.



11 G, 35 TKL, 1 INT, 16 PBU



—Semifinalist for Bednarik and Thorpe Awards.



Shemar Jean-Charles is a scrappy player with a slightly undersized frame. The two-year starter was able to record 16 pass breakups on 52 targets this past season, according to Pro Football Focus. He struggles in press at times, giving free releases without the fluidity needed to recover. He also seems to constantly be in a chase phase with receivers. His lack of size shows up in the run game, where he can be walled off too often and can struggle tackling bigger backs. Jean-Charles has the frame to be a slot corner but lacks the other prerequisite skill sets. He can add depth to a room but will struggle to make an impact on the field.


GRADE: 6.0/10 (Fringe Backup Potential, Round 7)
