Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior with totals of 56 tackles/7 tackles for loss/5 sacks. Junior numbers included 49 tackles and 2.5 tackles for loss.
Positives: Physically imposing defensive lineman who displays a lot of inconsistency in his game. Flashes athleticism on the field, gets down the line of scrimmage and shows the ability to quickly change direction. Works his hands throughout the action, keeps his feet moving on contact and possesses good initial power at the point of attack.
Negatives: Does not consistently play at a high level and at times gets easily turned from the action by lesser opponents. Gets sloppy with his technique, plays tall at times and makes himself an easy target. Lumbering lineman with a marginal closing burst.
Analysis: Jerod-Eddie possesses next level size/speed numbers but was not overly productive in any facet of the game during his college career. He lacks a nasty attitude and displays limited consistency on the field. Jerod-Eddie possesses enough skill to get consideration on the offensive line but is a long shot to make it in the NFL.
