2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Tim Jamison, DE, Michigan

Tim Jamison may not be a household name, but he's been extremely productive during his time at Michigan. Jamison is constantly a disruptive force in opposing teams' backfields. He played in 40 games during his career for the Wolverines, and has racked up 25.5 tackles for loss and 16 sacks. Even when Jamison isn't making a tackle behind the line, he makes his whole defense better by beating tackles and getting behind the line of scrimmage. His presence causes quarterbacks to have to throw early, and leaves unblocked linebackers easy tackles on ball carriers. Jamison has good straight line speed, and can blow by tackles on a regular basis. His transition to the NFL might be more difficult than some of the other hybrid defensive end/outside linebackers. Jamison hasn't shown the lateral quickness to stay with tight ends and running backs in coverage, making outside linebacker a tough fit at first; he'd need to add some weight and strength to be an every down end at the professional level. That being said, Jamison is still a very talented pass rusher and will have a lot of teams interested in his services come draft time, even after a down year as a senior. The Wolverines' rough start to the season and their defensive struggles certainly hurt Jamison's value. Tim Jamison is likely a fifth round prospect, unless he puts on quite a show at the combine and/or Michigan's Pro Day. Tim Jamison participated in January's Senior Bowl. He was solid during the weekend's game with 3 tackles, but failed to really distinguish himself during the week of practice. Tim Jamison showed up at the NFL Combine much lighter than expected, with little to show for it. He ran a 5.09 40 yard dash and had just 21 reps on the bench press. The drop in size didn't benefit him at all. Jamison is sliding into the late sixth or early seventh round portion of this year's draft.
