36” Vertical Jump

"Tolbert could be a steal in the 3rd round of rookie drafts."
Very smooth athlete
Skilled at release moves and adjusting speed mid-route
Sudden feet for clean breaks at route stem
Good tracking and adjustment on off-target throws
Strong 10" hands to win 50-50 balls & finish through contact
Turns into a DB when necessary; he catches it or no one does
Experience playing outside and in the slot
His 178 receptions, 3,140 yards, 22 TDs, & 10-100 yard receiving games are all South Alabama school records
Drops increased each of the last 3 seasons: 4, 5, & 7 respectively
Doesn't have true breakaway speed post-catch
Tips his break and/or path by drifting early in routes
Not much, if any, separation on a lot of his catches
Doesn't make many tacklers miss
Hugs the sideline too much allowing DBs to push him out
Underwhelming blocker and minimal special teams experience
Jalen Tolbert was a three-year starter at South Alabama and played the X-receiver role for offensive coordinator Major Applewhite. He passed up several offers to Power 5 schools to stay close to home, and became South Alabama's best receiver in school history. Jalen needs to work on a few areas of his game, but he does have starting traits for the NFL with his ability to track and make contested catches. Tolbert could be a steal in the 3rd round of rookie drafts.
