Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Displays adequate communication ability before the snap and during the play. While his overall processing of what he sees is slow, his athleticism and ability to close on ball carriers quickly with adequate angles can make up for it. He displays above the line physicality when engaging blockers, but his ability to disengage is hit and miss. Against offensive lineman he struggles due to merely adequate play strength and average length, but against tight ends he flashes good technique and block shedding ability. He displays outstanding coverage ability thanks to his background as a defensive back. His change of direction, speed, and fluidity allow him to match up with running backs coming out of the backfield while his physicality allows him to match up against tight ends. He has extensive experience playing in the slot due to his experience in Nebraska's defense and can comfortably bump out should it be required. He was not utilized as a blitzer often, but when he did rush the passer his speed was his main asset. His struggles to disengage from lineman limit his production as a blitzer, but he displays a high motor in pursuit.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
JoJo Domann began his career as a safety before switching to full time linebacker in 2019. He played in 51 career games with 26 starts as a linebacker. Was used more as a nickel safety than a true linebacker in Nebraska's defense and spent most of his time aligned in the slot with coverage responsibilities. He was named Nebraska's Defensive MVP and was selected as a Second Team All-American and All-Big Ten for the 2021 season. Has the physical tools necessary to be a successful linebacker at the next level but will need to improve the mental aspects of his game to do so. Projects as a sub-package coverage linebacker that you can win with while he develops and will be a core special teams player immediately.
