Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Dye has a naturally low center of gravity and knows how to use it to his advantage, staying low and playing peek-a-boo behind linemen and darting forward once Dye finds a crease.
  • He is a natural playmaker, at his best with the ball in his hands.
  • Shows a surprising burst to beat linebackers to the edge. Can plant his foot in the ground and explode, showing better straight-line speed than expected.
  • He shows decent burst and straight-line speed to turn in big plays.
  • He’s not the kind of guy who will define an offense as a runner but can be a star on the ground running behind a zone scheme.
  • Quick feet with good vision to pick through defenses. Dye has solid hands and body control and is a reliable receiver.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s shaky in pass protection, capable of making the correct reads but too reliant on cut blocks. When Dye does stay on his feet, he too often ducks his head and lunges.
  • Dye isn’t going to overwhelm opposing defensive backs with speed and athleticism.
  • He’s elusive with the ball in his hands, but he won’t break a lot of tackles. Because getting separation is going to be an issue, he’s likely going to need to line up off the line of scrimmage.

*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.
