2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Tanner Muse, S, Clemson Tigers

Smart, tough safety with linebacker size. Instinctive, displays a great head for the ball and stays with assignments. Tracks the pass in the air, gets vertical, and fights to defend throws.

Sells out up the field on the blitz, sacrifices his body to make plays against the run and plays with an all-out mentality. Quick out to the sidelines and displays a solid burst of closing speed. Keeps the action in front of him and rarely makes mental mistakes.

Shows a bit of stiffness in his game. Lacks great range. Makes more plays with his head than his sheer physical skills.

Muse was a terrific defender for Clemson who consistently made plays on the football, then turned in a great Combine workout, running much faster than anyone expected. He’s a versatile defender who can play a hybrid safety/linebacker position and add value on special teams.

  1. His size, speed, vertical and career stats are almost identical to Isaiah Simmons. Started 45 of 49 games. Stiffness? Range? Sadly, this is where prognosticators as well as GM’s are color-blind.
