Jalen Pitre Draft Profile
One of the biggest positives about Jalen Pitre is his character along with his intelligence on the field. Pitre starred for head coach Dave Aranda at the “star” position on the defense, thanks to his versatility and quick thinking. Has great eyes and instincts and is extremely proactive in run support as well.
For as solid as Pitre was in his role at Baylor, he will probably lack the speed for safety. He has sticky hips and rigid movements that can make him a liability as a corner in space at the next level. Pitre also often comes in too hot as a tackler which will be a problem in the NFL.
