Draft Scout JaWuan James News
01/21/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl: 10 observations from Monday's South practice...4. Tennessee right tackle Ju'Wuan James hasn't received a lot of fanfare but he is a smooth athlete at 6-foot-6, 315 pounds.

12/02/13 - WEEK 14 SEC OFFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE WEEK: Ja'Wuan James, OT, Tennessee...James played his final game in a Tennessee uniform by setting the school record with his 49th start on the offensive line...All 49 of James' starts were consecutive and encompassed every game of his UT career since setting foot on campus as a true freshman...The Vols defeated Kentucky, 27-14, recording their fifth 200-yard rushing game of the season, the most for Tennessee since 2004. - SEC football
08/29/13 - TOP TENNESSEE PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 2. OT Ja'Wuan James (6-6, 324, 5.28)...Richardson may boast the highest upside of Tennessee's NFL prospects but the best player on the team at this point is arguably the veteran playing opposite him at right tackle. James signed with the Vols as a highly regarded prep in 2010 and has done nothing but prove worthy of his hype since, starting all 37 games of his career at the strongside tackle position. His comfort at right tackle is obvious as he quickly recognizes stunts, showing surprisingly initial quickness, lateral agility and flexibility despite his monstrous frame. He is light on his feet and keeps his knees bent, playing with very good balance for a man of his size.
Like most blockers with his frame, James occasionally struggles with pad level. When he drops his head, he can be beaten with a swim move over the top. This occurs most often while run blocking. He is powerful and competitive, showing the grit to knock defenders off the ball at the line of scrimmage while keeping an eye on potential targets downfield. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
08/28/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2013: OL Ja'Wuan James gave the Vols a huge boost when he decided to return for his senior year even though he probably would have been a fairly coveted draft pick. He'll be one of the linchpins of a veteran offensive line that should be a strength for Tennessee. - The Sports Xchange
