The Skinny
Jafar Mann touts himself as a run-stopper. He has good technique coming out of his stance and has the ability to get low and stand up offensive lineman, which translates to good penetration and disruption along the line.
The downside is he can be inconsistent at times staying low and with his height it can be a problem. He lacks the explosive quickness needed to be a real disruptive force. Look for him to play more in obvious running situations like early in the set of downs and on goal-line stands.
Mann’s teammate, Mike Davis, has also committed to the Gators.
