Pierre Desir

Cornerback

Height: 6' 1", Weight: 198 lbs

Lindenwood University

Strengths: Desir ran a 4.59 second 40-yard dash at the Combine. He is extremely athletic and changes direction fluidly. He's a patient cornerback who plays aggressively on underneath routes. He has good control of his body which helps him make difficult plays. Desir finished the 2013 season with four interceptions and six pass deflections. He was only thrown to 14 times all season.

Weaknesses: Desir played at Lindenwood University. Don't know where that is? Neither does anyone else. So the caliber of opponent was not at an elite level. He will need coaching to make his skill set match his talent level. He also has trouble fighting through blocks. Receivers can slip past him if Desir thinks the play is dead.

Bottom Line: Pierre Desir's professional career will most likely follow his college career. It may start off slow, but will quickly gain momentum.

Projected Round: 3

Team He Fits Best On: Bengals, Chiefs, Redskins
