2010 NFL Combine Results
2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
John Jerry, OT, Mississippi
Jerry is one of the most experienced offensive lineman in college football. A four-year starter at Ole Miss, Jerry started 12 games at right guard as a freshman, started nine games at right guard as a sophomore, started 13 games at right tackle as a junior, and as a senior he started four games each at both right guard and right tackle. In 2006 and 2007 he helped BenJarvus Green-Ellis eclipse the 1,000-yard mark and in 2008 the Rebels' rushing attack ranked second in the SEC. Last season, Ole Miss racked up 2,387 on the ground, including 1,169 from Dexter McCluster and 614 from Brandon Bolden. Jerry is a massive run-blocker at 6'6' and 340 pounds. He has been clocked as fast as 5.32 in the 40-yard dash, but his lateral movement and quickness are not ideal; not surprising, though, for a man of his size. Still, Jerry is a versatile lineman, as he showed by playing both guard and tackle for Mississippi. He will have to play guard at the next level, but Jerry will be an ideal fit for any NFL team that wants to play smash-mouth football and run right up the gut behind its interior linemen. Jerry is the brother of Peria Jerry (who go selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft). John won't go as high, but his stock is on the rise and he could even sneak into the third round with a strong performance at the combine.
