2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Darqueze Dennard, CB , Michigan State
Outstanding route recognition. Reads quarterback's eyes and reacts quickly. Decisive in his movements. Always in position and rarely beat by double moves. Great press jam at the line. Smooth when opening up hips to transition into a sprint. Could be a beat slow when getting out of his backpedal. Teams rarely threw his way. Anchor for the Spartans' top pass defense. Above-average fluidity in his movements. Still perfecting his man coverage technique, particularly the footwork.
Average recognition against the run. A beat slow getting off blocks. Seals the edge well tackles well in space. Not afraid of contact. Could afford to add more strength. Average straight line speed. Not particularly an explosive athlete. Tracks the ball well. Can usually come down with the catch when leaping.
Dennard projects as a Top 20 pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
