Shemar is best known for his incredible press man coverage and mirror ability on the line of scrimmage. He has a great ability to cut of defenders out of their breaks and play WRs from any alignment. He possesses great field vision and senses when the ball is coming as shown by his amount of pass defelctions over the last two seasons. He has great balls skills as an undersized CB. Jean-Charles has excellent footwork and is very strong in his back pedal, making him great in both zone and man schemes. His press converage ability is excellent.
The biggest knock on Shemar is that he was playing in the Sun Belt conference. He has performed great in his two years starting but the level of competition will always be a knock. Shemar is sometimes slow off the line but makes up for it with his closing speed. He does not come down with many interceptions despite his good ball skills. Jean-Charles has shown a lack of hip fluidity when breaking out of cuts and it has caused him to lose fast receivers at times.
Shemar Jean-Charles is a very interesting athlete at the CB position. He was mainly a special teams ace in his first couple years at App State until he became a starter and instantly became a force. He was crowned the Sun Belt Player of the Year by PFF follwing his breakout year in 2020. He had a higher forced incompletion rate than a catch rate allowed with is a very rare feat for any DB. Shemar was a first team All-American as well and really put himself on the map for most NFL scouts. Jean-Charles is the arguably the best Group of Five CB in the country. He has great length, and plays the WRs very well throughout the entirety of the route. He led the NATION is passes deflected and only allowed 2 Tds and 198 yards on the year. Shemar, because of the conference he played with, will be a later day 3 pick. Probably in the 6th round but could fall to the 7th or even out of the draft. Shemar will succeed is a press man scheme out of the nickel until he continues to develop. He can even play safety if needed which makes his versatility attractive to scouts.
