JetNation 2022 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: JoJo Domann, Linebacker, Nebraska

The NFL draft is just around the corner and GM Joe Douglas will be looking to re-build one of the most porous units in the NFL after Robert Saleh watched his group give up over 500 points in 2021.  Today’s prospect is Nebraska linebacker JoJo Domann.

While Domann lacks elite athleticism, he makes up for it with great anticipation, instincts and a high motor.  This isn’t to say Domann isn’t athletic per se, just that he’s not running a sub 4.5 40 in shorts as so many backers seem to be nowadays.  His 4.62 40 and 34.5 inch vertical in Indy aren’t eye popping numbers, but they’re far from suggesting he may be a liability at the pro level.

Domann is a linebacker who is always around the ball and rarely misses a tackle.  When he does let one slip, it’s due more to his length than technique.  Domann brings a bit more thump than you might expect for 228lb player but you can chalk that up to the fire he plays with.  Able to cover most tight ends down the field, Domann has shown the ability to track the ball on the run while breaking up and intercepting several passes down the field.  As is the case with most players his size, you will Domann get swallowed up by a blocker from time to time, but this shouldn’t prevent a team like the Jets from considering him on draft day.  Domann will be at his best in space.

A former safety, Domann’s age will bring some criticism as he’ll turn 25 before the start of the season, but the team that drafts him will likely get a productive starter and leader who is ready to go from day one.  His ability to excel in a variety of schemes while moving around the defense will make him an appealing option as well.

Domann projects as a day 1 starter who can be had at the back end of the third round or early in round four.
