2021 NFL Draft Profile: Pitt CB Jason Pinnock



Pitt cornerback Jason Pinnock’s consistent play over the past three seasons gives him a chance to be an NFL Draft selection. He spent his freshman year as a special teamer and reserve defensive back, but played in 33 games at corner in three years with 19 starts. Pinnock missed time in 2018 and 2019 due to injury, which hurts his chances to be drafted, but recorded 54 tackles, 25 pass breakups, and six interceptions in his career. He has the size to be an NFL cornerback, but many analysts are worried about his speed and agility, which would likely get exposed at the pro level.
