Jah-Marien Latham Scouting Report
Jah-Marien Latham has great size and a keen ability at punishing opposing runners. More than once in the attached clip you see him launch himself at a ball carrier to send them flying like an inflatable. At 03:19 in the video below he maintains his outside contain, forcing the quarterback inside and then tackles him so hard it looks like he ends his night. In a lot of these clips, the idea that its difficult to efficiently double cover Latham is heavily reinforced. (DT Yates)
