Draft Scout J.T. Surratt News
08/25/14 - South Carolina's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 4. DT J.T. Surratt, RS Senior...Surratt is the lone returning starter along the defensive line for South Carolina and is coming off a junior campaign in which he recorded 33 tackles, including four for loss and 1.5 sacks. Surratt possesses a thick, powerful frame that helps him anchor against the run. He uses his natural leverage advantage to get under the pads of opponents and he locates the ball quickly. He is strong enough to stand his ground and grab runners attempting to slip past him for tackles near the line of scrimmage. Surratt's plays with a high-revving engine, showing good effort in lateral and downfield pursuit, as well as surprising agility and acceleration for his stubby frame. Despite his production and effort, Surratt does not possess ideal length. He is too short to get into quarterbacks' field of vision to deflect passes and has shorter-than-ideal arms, which cause him to struggle disengaging from opponents. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
