Scouting Report: Strengths
- Good strength and effort to run through arm tackles.
- A coordinated athlete and tough player to tackle, running with low pad level. Has good body thickness and strength.
- Above-average acceleration for a big man.
- He’s coordinated with soft, reliable hands, and Dean shows the ability to adjust to balls thrown behind him, as well as a knack for digging out low throws.
- A fluid mover capable of creating some separation over the middle of the field, he has the long arms and soft hands to provide a sizable catch radius.
- Dean is a highly competitive player and quickly gets to the perimeter, blocking well in space and at the second level.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- He’s not going to threaten to take the top off of a defense.
- He’ll also have to adjust to getting his head around to locate the ball on shorter routes over the middle.
- Lacks the bulk strength to lock on and control NFL defensive linemen. Lower-body strength is questionable and limits his in-line blocking.
