Analysis:

Stanley Jean-Babtiste is an impressive physical specimen who doesn’t have the functional speed or lateral athleticism to play corner.   He needs to improve his tackling, awareness and aggression to make the switch to safety. While he does lack speed and agility, He’s got great lower body explosion, phenomenal leaping ability and he flashes dominant playing strength. A switch to safety could be in order. He’ll need to progress quickly at the next level to find a home. Otherwise he’ll be a depth player at best.
