Scouting Report on Lamarcus Joyner

On the Hoof: Looks like a smaller all-purpose back that will be hard to see when he hits the line-of-scrimmage. He has very muscular arms and forearms like Mr. Clean.
Needs Improvement: He needs work on man-to-man coverage and reading the quarterback's eyes. Joyner has been at safety his whole career and it looks like he will still be there as a senior.
Most Impressive: Is one of the biggest hitters pound-for-pound in the country, and he does have a short-term memory if he gets beat on a play.
Conclusion: The transition from safety to corner could take as long as two years, but there is little doubt that he will have a spot on most special teams earlier in his career because of his affinity for inflicting pain.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
