Scouting Report on Antonio Jeremiahby Mike Farrell - 06/20/2006
Jeremiah is a very active and agile defensive tackle who uses quickness and athletic ability as his main strengths. His wrestling experience gives him very quick feet and strong hands and allows him to handle offensive linemen one-on-one. Jeremiah plays a lot of defensive end in high school and is disruptive in the passing game with excellent instincts for batting down passes. He maintains his balance even when offensive linemen go low and has the athletic ability to leap over prone linemen to get in on the play. Jeremiah is stout against the run, taking on blockers well and giving little ground. He lacks the outside speed to play end in college unless itâ€™s in a 3-4, but heâ€™ll be a strong pass rusher from his tackle position.
