Pos: 
Physical run-defending safety at his best playing downhill. Stays with assignments, effectively reads or anticipates the action and plays heads-up football. Fast up the field, defeats blocks and quickly makes his way to the ball carrier. Secure tackler who wraps up at the point of attack. Breaks down well and sells out to make plays. Productive special-teams player.
Neg: 
Plays faster than his 40 time yet is still slow for a defensive back. Not quick or fluid pedaling in reverse.
Analysis: 
Jerome was a terrific small-school safety who turned heads at the Senior Bowl with his run-stuffing ability. He does the little things well, which could help him catch on as a ninth defensive back this fall.
