At 6’3” and with freakish athletic ability, Julius Brents is starting to become

a household name. A former 3-star recruit out of the Indianapolis area, Brents

will be coming home to show off his athleticism at the NFL combine in a few short


Brents had an impressive week of shutting down the receivers at the Senior

Bowl. With a reported 39.3” vertical jump in high school, scouts will be on edge to

see what kind of results Brents will showcase.

During his senior season, Brents logged action in all 13 games making 38

tackles, recording 3 pass breakups, and hauling in 4 interceptions. He’s a ballhawk

with fluid movement and more than adequate closing speed. He can play both

corner and safety with his size.

Here is a look at Julius Brents' pros and cons:

CB-: Julius Brents' Measurables

Height: 6’3” 

Weight: 202 lbs.

Hands: 9 1/2”

Arm: 33 3/4”

Span: 82 7/8

40 Time: 4.5


  • Impressive athlete with size and length

  • Aggressive against the run

  • Played safety in high school, could supply great DB depth

  • Great closing speed with good ball awareness


  • Foot speed needs to improve

  • Needs to read plays better, bites often at fakes

  • Struggles shedding blockers

  • Ran into some penalty issues at K-State.

Final Analysis

Julius Brents, with his build, may be better suited to transition to a safety in

the NFL. At times, he struggles in man-to-man but is above average as a run-stopper.

Projected Draft Position

Brents is rising a bit on the boards. Draft 412 projects Brents coming off the

board in the third or fourth round. His size and ability will be hard to overlook.
