Jermaine Gresham Audibles
"He's about where a junior or senior would be. He's 260 pounds, he can run, he's strong. He's worked hard. He's got an attitude about him. He's got a chance to be a really special one." — Head coach, Bob Stoops
A big, coordinated athlete, Gresham carries his weight well and looks very fluid in the pass game. Isn't overly explosive off the line when his hand is on the ground. He's at his best when split out in the slot. Showcases a natural burst out of his breaks and does a nice job changing gears. He lacks elite straight-line speed but is a long strider who can run away from man coverage and separate down the field. Isn't a very sharp route runner and has a tendency to start leaning into his route before the break. Gets sloppy with his footwork and doesn't consistently do a good job setting up defenders underneath. An explosive leaper, Gresham showcases the ability to go up and snatch the football at its highest point. Locates the ball quickly in the pass game and possesses the body control to consistently adjust to the play. Works hard down the field and displays the body control to hit and seal a moving target away from the play. But he has a tendency to have lapses in concentration and, at times, is inconsistent with his hands. Exhibits a narrow base and struggles generating much power from his lower half as an in-line run blocker. He has the length to get into opposing linemen quickly, but he doesn't possess the strength to get much push off the ball. Coming off knee surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee, he missed the 2009 season and needs to prove he's 100-percent healthy in postseason workouts. He's an athletic tight end who does a good job changing speeds and striding past defenders down the field. But he's still developing as a route runner.
