Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Has the change-of-direction ability to mirror underneath but did solid work out of press and off coverage.
  • DeBerry tracks the ball well and does a nice job of getting his head around in plenty of time to avoid flags.
  • He has the straight-line speed to recover. His ball skills are tremendous, with good hands and the potential to take it to the house any time DeBerry gets his hands on the ball.
  • Tracks the ball well and has the natural ball skills for forcing turnovers.
  • Tracks the ball well downfield and shows good ball skills, including the ability to go up and high-point it in contested-catch situations.
  • Top-end speed is good and is capable of turning and running in press coverage. DeBerry also shows good instincts when sitting back in zone and looking into the backfield.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Gets sloppy with his backpedal when playing off-man and seems to lack the instincts to close on the ball.
  • Tends to play conservatively and give too much cushion when playing off.
  • Making the tackle against bigger backs is a potential issue.

*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.
