Jer'Zhan Newton's Player Profile

Chris Burke - The Athletic - August 24th: "Newton is the type of athletic, gap-shooting interior DT that NFL defenses search high and low to find. Hes quick enough to move laterally against the run, strong enough to hold up inside or beat guards with his punch and explosive enough to penetrate."

Charlie Campbell - Walter Football - August 20th: "In 2022, Newton recorded 5.5 sacks, 59 tackles and three passes batted. He picked up 3.5 sacks in 2021. At 6-foot-2, 295 pounds, Newton is shorter and lacks length, so he will have to develop the ability to hold up against NFL mass."

Ian Cummings - Pro Football Network - July 25th: "At 62?, 295 pounds, Newton fits the mold of the modern disruptor. While his length is a concern, Newton counteracts that concern easily with his explosiveness, agility, natural leverage, intentional hands, and strength. And his flexibility is a hyper-elite trait that allows him to peel through blocks and consistently squirm free in pursuit."
