Who is Lorenzo Jerome??
If you had not heard of Lorenzo Jerome before last Saturdays Senior Bowl, you certainly have now. He had himself a very good day in Mobile with a couple of good pass breakups and 4 tackles.
Jerome is 6’0″ and 198 pounds and was a 3 time FCS All American at St. Francis (PA). He finished his career with 12 INT, 193 Tackles and 24 pass breakups.
deceptive speed (great returner in college as well)
nose for the ball
great ball instincts
top notch tackler
played against lesser talent (St Francis played 1 game against an FBS school in his 4 years)
lighter than other top Free Safeties.
WHERE HE FITS WITH THE RAMS
It is painfully obvious where he fits on this Rams team. The entire secondary was well below average and as good as Mo Alexander looks, he is playing out of position. The Rams have not had a true FS since probably 2009 and this guy looks to be the real deal. The Rams would find a mid round gem in this guy if he wears the Horns on the Helmet in 2017. Most mocks (including my upcoming Mock 2.0) have Jerome going in the 4th round.
