Final Grade

7.48

Lacks hip fluidity in man coverage and needs to clean up both his feet and hands in press. Accels in off man and zone which allows him to keep his eyes on the QB while dropping into coverage. Reads routes and makes educated breaks on the ball. His quick reaction time and elite speed make him a very rangy safety. He consistently made plays he had no business even being apart of. Very aggressive when the ball's in the air and fights to dislodge at the catch point.







Weaknessess

Pitre has a tendency of being too aggressive, both in coverage and against the run. He takes bad pursuit angles and can miss tackles in the open field due to being overly confident in his speed and athleticism. He struggles in man coverage against quick footed, route running wide receivers. His tight hips and false steps allow WR's to create seperation.

Big Picture

Free safety, strong safety, corner, nickel, linebacker and edge, that's what Baylor asked of this man on the field and he delivered. The 2021 Big-12 Defensive Player of the Year and Consensus All-American racked up a staggering 75 tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, 2 interceptions, and 3 forced fumbles. Team's looking for a do-all safety have to love what Pitre showed on film over the past two seasons. He's a high upside early day 2 selection who's ceiling requires a creative defensive coordinator who's willing to recreate a similar hybrid role.

Athleticism:

His 4.4 speed, play strength, and exceptional acceleration/burst make him one of the most athletic safeties in this year's draft class. Jalen flies around the field with reckless abandonment, living in opponents backfields and making big plays in space.

Very aggressive when the ball's in the air and fights to dislodge at the catch point. Could struggle in man against NFL caliber slot corners but athletic enough to stick to TE's


Playmaking:

7.69

7.25

He's a ballhawk, elite blitzer for a DB, and features an uncanny ability to always be around the ball. His closing quickness flashes on film, consistently eliminating space in zone, making breaks on the ball and coming down hill in a hurry.

Run Support:

Pitre attacks the run like he's still playing linebacker. He's great at fighting through blocks, shooting gaps, and coming off the edge to make plays behind the line of scrimmage. TE's struggle to block him as a run defender and Jalen is great at slipping blocks and bending on the edge. Needs to work on his angles and possibly slow his game down just a hair so he has time to adjust. Needs to clean up his tackling form.

Ultra-competitive, Jalen was clearly the best player on the field anytime you watch the tape and gave 110% every single down. He certainly has the attitude and alpha male type confidence you want in a defensive back. His high output and consistent effort may be his most underrated attribute.

Intelligence:

7.25

It's evident that Jalen is a student of the game type. His athleticism compliments his football intelligence, the ability to read offenses, diagnosis route concepts, and know the play callers tendencies based on formation and personnel is currently at an NFL level.
