2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Jeremy Cash, Safety, Duke
By Lijah Spencer (tweaked74)
Tonight we go back to the defensive side of the ball for scouting notes. This year’s crop of safeties has a chance to be a very good one, with many players who show good promise to make it at the next level. Tonight’s subject started his career at Ohio St, but later transferred to Duke, and is at or near the top of that list, here are my notes:
Jeremy Cash. 6’2. 205 lbs. Safety. Duke
1) Cash is a smart player, with good ability to read the play
2) A good blitzing safety
3) Shows very good tackling ability
4) Plays with high effort and determination
5) Fights hard through blocks to get to the ball carrier
1) He is not bad in coverage, but he can get better.
Jeremy Cash is an athletic safety who shows good ability to blitz the Quarterback as well as tackle the ball carrier. He fights hard to get through his blocker to get to the ball carrier, and has enough speed to chase him sideline to sideline. Cash reads the play very well, which shows high football intelligence and probably diligent film studying. He plays with high energy and determination, and shows ability to make plays at all levels of the field. His pass coverage is good, but could improve. If Jeremy Cash has a good season, he should be one of the top safeties in the draft.
