Overview:

Jerome was highly productive at Saint Francis (PA), where he came up with 252 tackles, 14.0 for loss, an impressive 18 interceptions, and an even more impressive 47 pass breakups. He has great speed, is a hard hitter, a tough nosed player, a defensive play maker, and is good in coverage. He is a bit undersized, and he does get beat in coverage at times. With that said, and due to a great Senior Bowl, where he had 2 interceptions, I see Jerome as a day 2 pick, likely in the 3rd round, definitely a top 100 pick at worse.
