NFL.com's scouting report on Jayron Kearse

NFL.com has released its prospect review of former Clemson defensive back Jayron Kearse and graded him as a 5.39 on their prospect scale. 5.30-5.69 is categorized as a player that will be a backup or eventual NFL starter.

"Odds are that Kearse will test well and with his length and ability, he very well may go much higher than the grade I have on him," NFL.com said. "To play safety, there needs to be a sense of urgency and consistency because that position is the last line of defense and Kearse doesn’t show those traits nearly enough at this time. If the light comes on and he gets more dog in him, then we are talking about a substantially better NFL player."

Kearse was a first-team All-ACC performer this past season with 62 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, one interception and six pass breakups.
