At Draft 412, the NFL draft talk never ends. We will keep you ready for the next set of gridiron stars—from today and all the way until draft night 2024. We will bring you mock drafts, player profiles, individual team needs, and everything else you may need related to the 2024 NFL Draft.


Today’s Spotlight - James Madison, Defensive Line, Jamree Kromah

Name - Jamree Kromah

Pos - DL

Team - James Madison

HT/WT - 6’4” 275 lbs.

Home - Glenarden, MD


Jamree Kromah played his high school football at Charles Herbert Flowers High School where he recorded 27 sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception as a senior and was named First Team All-Met by the Washington Post. Over his high school career, Kromah earned 3-star recruit ratings from ESPN and 247Sports and a 2-star rating from Rivals.com. He was not recruited by many power 5 schools and chose Rutgers over offers from UConn, Army, Bowling Green and others.


Kromah spent his first three years at Rutgers as a depth player on the defensive line for the Scarlet Knights. His numbers from these seasons don’t jump out due to his limited playing time. Over these three seasons, Kromah played in 23 games, recording 17 total tackles, 2.5 TFL, and 0.5 sacks in his time at Rutgers. 


After the 2021 season, Kromah transferred to James Madison University with hopes of gaining more playing time and did. He played in 10 games in his first season with the Dukes including three starts, making 21 tackles, 5.5 TFL, and 3.5 sacks. This was enough to earn him a starting role this season with JMU. He has had a breakout campaign and has solidified himself as an NFL draft contender with his performance this season as he has tallied 52 tackles, 20.5 TFL, and 11 sacks. This impressive production has allowed Kromah to climb draft boards in his last season of college eligibility.


Kromah, at 6’4” and 275 pounds, shows superior strength at the point of attack and his consistent burst gets a push on his matchups on the line. When paired with his quickness and lateral movement, he becomes a versatile weapon with ability to play both off the edge and inside. He is a bit undersized for the interior, but his skills allow him to still be fairly effective in that role. His ability to reach the backfield is what draws the attention of NFL scouts as nearly 40% of his tackles this season have been for loss. 


Kromah’s speed is good enough to be effective in the backfield and behind the line of scrimmage, but once he gets into open space or into chase-down situations, he struggles to catch most ball carriers. He does not have the straight-line speed of some edge rushers, but his lateral movement is still very solid. He also lacks a deep set of rush moves which makes his game a bit more predictable as games go on. He typically uses power moves as he enjoys playing low and driving his blockers backwards, but has a few other moves as well. 


Strengths

  • Strength

  • Frame

  • Quickness

  • Tackling


Weaknesses

  • Speed

  • Rush Moves

  • Open Field


Final Analysis


Kromah’s combination of quickness and strength allows him to play both off the edge and on the inside as a defensive lineman. He may not have straight line speed to be effective in open field and chase down scenarios, but his lateral ability and reliable tackling are also of value in the NFL.
