As a sophomore in 2021 he played 7 games and had just one catch for 18 yards for an average of 18.0 yards per catch, with no TDs, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 118.8.

As a junior in 2022 he played 12 games and hauled in just 10 catches for just 129 yards for an average of 12.9 yards per catch, with 2 TDs, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 147.1. As a pass blocker he gave up 2 pressures and one sack.

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.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
