Jamarius Dinkins Scouting Report
Jamarius Dinkins is a big defensive end who plays at 6-foot-6 and around 245 pounds. Named Division II first-team All-Ohio as a junior. Plays with power and leverage and can work both inside and outside on the defensive line. Excellent pad level and drive off of the snap for his size with adequate explosion. Disruptive against the pass and the run. In the video below you can see how Dinkins often occupies two blockers in the run game as his long arms allow him to move and swim through the line to get to the running back at the point of attack.
