Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Dean has soft hands and uses his frame effectively to shield defenders, making him a major threat in the red zone. He can also turn upfield and break a tackle.
  • Works hard on and off the field. Good strength throughout, fluid body control, and natural movement kills.
  • A coordinated athlete and tough player to tackle, running with low pad level. Has good body thickness and strength.
  • Gets a quick release off the line. Dips his shoulder and shows some savvy 8 as a route runner to avoid contact with defenders g to get into his route.
  • Dean has quick feet and good body control, allowing him to gear down and quickly get in and out of cuts. His hands are good, and he’s a creative runner after the catch with the elusiveness to slip tackles in space.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • And he’ll need to become a sharper route runner, especially on option routes, to create separation at the intermediate level.
  • Is a bit high-hipped and slow to get rolling. Frame limits upside as a blocker.
  • His ability to track the ball is good enough, but Dean too often let the ball get into his body downfield rather than snatching it with his hands.
  • Dean also lacks suddenness as a route runner, and that is a potential issue at the next level.
