The University of Georgia has been on an impressive run in college football. Winning back-to-back SEC and national titles and close to a third is almost unheard of unless you are Alabama. Outside of good coaching, great talents like Kamari Lassiter are the main reason for the success. Lassiter was a four-star recruit out of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and spurred the tide for the Bulldogs. On Day One, Lassiter was an impact player for the Bulldogs, playing in every game. For the last two seasons, Lassiter was a full-time starter and was a dominating force for the Bulldogs. He was selected as a second-team player. Is he a first-rounder? Let’s dig into the film!

2024 NFL Draft: Kamari Lassiter Scouting Report 

Lassiter’s Strengths

  • He is very fluid and quick action in and out of his breaks. Had the fastest three-cone time at the combine with 6.62 seconds.
  • Natural mover light on his toes in space. It helps him in coverage and tackling. Great backpedal and break ability.
  • It comes from Georgia Kirby Smart’s Nick Saban tree, where everyone takes pride in stopping the run. Fearless as he’s Not afraid to get in the mud and offer support.
  • Good tackler in space and on blitzes in backfield vs offensive players of all sizes.
  • Great vision, play awareness, and football IQ in zone coverage. He keeps his head on a swivel and passes out his man with the ability to come back into his zone. He makes spectacular plays on the football in the zone to help teammates.
  • Day one starter, especially in the slot. He can help an NFL team right now with over 45 games of experience and 30 starts.
  • He eliminates the quick game and screens with physical play and loves to hit.

Lassiter’s Weakness

  • He’s an undersized corner without elite speed. He will get bullied at NFL guarding bigger outside Wide Receivers.
  • Best to be your slot corner or number two corner guarding smaller wide receivers.
  • He struggles to locate the ball downfield at times. He only had one interception in his entire career.
  • He is too grabby with Wide Receivers, especially downfield. Can be too physical with wide receivers trying to reroute or find the ball.
  • How fast is Kamari Lassiter? Did not run the 40-yard dash at the combine. He has moments downfield of panicking trying to keep up with wide receivers.

Projection: Late Second to Early Third Round Pick

NFL Comparison: Byron Murphy

Best Fits: Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles, and the Houston Texans.

Bottom Line

Kamari Lassiter is a feisty, twitchy corner who plays every down of football like it’s his last. He’s physical despite his size, and football intelligence is off the charts. Lassiter is a day-one starter due to his ability to be sticky in man coverage, excellent in zone coverage, and fluid movements. My NFL comparison was Minnesota Viking Byron Murphy. Murphy is not the fastest corner, but he plays an aggressive style of football and is very fluid. Expect Lassiter to be picked on day two of the NFL draft and have a promising career.
