T-Rock's Phinfever FFL 2014

Miami addressed the OG/OT position in the 4th round with the pick of OG/OT Jamil Douglas of Arizona State.  The 6'4, 304 lbs Douglas has the versatility to play both OT and OG, which is his position with the Dolphins.  Well built kid that plays with leverage in the passing game and able to absorb the bull rush due to good flexibility and core strength.  Flashes a mean streak and is aggressive, and has the quickness to not only get to the next level, but hit a moving target.  As stated earlier, he will move inside because of his arm length, which is 32 1/4" long, but in a crunch, he can and has the verstatility to play OT.  Very good fit for a zone blockig scheme.



Jamil Douglas, OG
School: Arizona State | Conference: PAC12
College Experience: Senior | Hometown: Cypress, CA
Height/Weight: 6-4 / 304 lbs




What he brings:
Douglas moved from guard to left tackle in 2014, and he'll likely move back to guard because of pass pro concerns. He struggles with speed-to-power off the edge and his below-average arm length raises concerns about his ability to prevent NFL speed rushers from turning the corner. He doesn't have the power base to drive defenders off the ball in the run game, either. However, he has the frame, size and enough foot speed to provide depth at guard in a zone-heavy scheme.

Production 2 2010: Redshirted2011 (13/0): OG 2012 (13/13): OG 2013 (14/14): OG2014 (13/13): LOT
Height-Weight-Speed 2 Above average blend of height, weight and top-end speed with good arm length. Thick trunk but tapered legs with thin ankles.
Durabil- ity 1 Built well and has appeared in every game over the past four seasons.
Intangi- bles 3 First name is pronounced Juh-MILL. Hard worker in the weight room and takes care of body. Played tight end/H-back as a senior after primarily being featured at left tackle during the early part of his high school career. Douglas and former teammate Lee Adams were caught on video stealing an Xbox and laptops from another player's dorm room in 2010. Model student and player after the incident. Graduated from Arizona State with an undergraduate degree in criminal justice and spent last fall working on a master's in liberal studies while maintaining a 3.92 GPA

Offensive Guard Specific Traits

Pass Protec- tion 3 Flashes ability to mirror once locked on but he's an average athlete that struggles to recover when oversets to the outside and struggles to stay in front when doesn't get hands inside. Gets set quickly and flashes ability to ride edge rushers past quarterback but length raises concern about ability to protect the edge at NFL level and may have to slide inside to succeed. Struggles to sink and gives too much ground to speed to power.
Run Blocking 4 Flashes ability to uncoil and knock defenders back but exception not norm. Doesn't regularly drive through initial contact and create push either. Plays high and tends to stop moving feet on contact. Adequate range and angles climbing up to second level but doesn't show great body control and has problems adjusting to moving targets in space. Quick and wide enough to develop into an effective zone blocker with improved footwork and hand placement. Hands slide outside far too much at this point.
Aware- ness 3 Recognizes defenders creeping up and picks up blitzes in pass pro. Not as consistent recognizing and reacting to line stunts though adequate in that area. As a run blocker has problems adjusting on the fly and locating assignment when defensive front shifts at the snap of the ball.
Tough- ness 3 Plays with an edge at times and flashes ability to finish but not a mauler that consistently plays from snap to whistle and wears out defenders with his relentless effort. Content to get into position and wall off assignment all too often.

STRENGTHS: Looks the part with broad shoulders, trim middle and good balance. Quick off the snap. Plays with good leverage in pass protection to absorb bull rush, good flexibility and core strength. Slides well laterally and looks to help teammates when not covered up. Flashes a nasty streak, taking defenders to the ground.


Good mover to and through the second level. Can hit the moving target and readjust beyond the point of attack. Above-average agility.

WEAKNESSES: Short arms (32 1/4 inches) limit his perimeter effectiveness in pass protection. Scouts will investigate 2010 arrest and burglary charge that led to suspension but was later dropped. Inconsistent in the running game and might make most sense for a zone scheme that utilizes athleticism and angles. Gets high to drive block, dropping his head to become vulnerable to over-arm swim moves. Can be indecisive in the open field and too often resorts to sealing off defenders, not driving through them.

--Rob Rang

Player Overview

Highly versatile and athletic with experience at all four offensive line positions outside the center. Entered 2014 with 27 consecutive starts, primarily at left guard, and started 13 games at left tackle for the Sun Devils to be named All-Pac-12 first team.

A natural athlete with good feet he fits best inside because of his height, weight and reach.




2014: First-team All-Pac 12. Switched from LG to LT this season. Stared all 13 games at LT. 2013: Second-team All-Pac 12. Started all 14 games at LG. 2012: Started all 13 games at LG. 2011: Played in all 13 games as a reserve. 2010: Redshirted. High School: Played TD and H-Back as a senior after playing LT early in his career.

Pro Day Results

20-yard short shuttle: 4.58 seconds
Three-cone drill: 7.73 seconds



Athletic build with desired flexibility throughout lower body. Has recovery quickness to catch delayed blitzers and twists. Flashes promising quick-set that he will use to take early lead in protection. Can pull, turn corner and find targets. Effective blocker in screen game with ability to adjust to moving targets in space. Can punch and reset hands quickly to counter a spin move. Has bend and hips to win leverage battle early in the snap.


Finesse, left guard-only prospect. Waits on action to come to him. Isn't a consistent enough block finisher. Must convert weight-room strength to play strength. Gives ground against bull-rushers. Struggles to consistently redirect when defender gets to his edge. Will get cross-faced. Shows very little fire in his play and looks like he's going through the motions. Gets caught catching rather than punching. Fails to generate push at the point of attack. Feet will stall and he doesn't sustain blocks for very long.

Draft Projection

Round 5 or 6

Sources Tell Us

"He's got to get tougher and stronger. Everyone sees things differently so maybe another team will be sold on his athleticism, but I gave him a late grade based on what we want from our guards." -- AFC west scout

NFL Comparison

Earl Watford

Bottom Line

Douglas gets by with adequate length and plus athleticism, but his play demeanor will have to ramp up in order to make it as an NFL guard. Douglas flashes enough potential to excite teams looking for athletic traits, but his lack of functional power will be hard to overlook for others. Douglas could benefit from a glass-chewing mentor in the NFL.
