Height: 5' 11", Weight: 199 lbs
Strengths: Dennard has a good build for the position. The majority of his time with the Spartans he played in man to man schemes. He is very mobile. He has good speed and agility. He is a leader on the defense and plays with great intensity. Dennard is also great when providing run support. He plays with patience and has good hand-eye coordination. He also tackles well and is a team player. He is willing to take out blockers to let others make the play.
Weaknesses: Dennard is strong but won't be the most athletic man on the field. He was not asked to play zone very often, so he has limited exposure to the scheme. He had double hernia surgery between the 2012 and 2013 seasons, so he may not be the most durable cornerback.
Bottom Line: Darqueze Dennard is a quality cornerback. He'll make an impact with some coaching on zone defense.
Projected Round: 1
Team He Fits Best On: Bears, Jets, Lions, Steelers
