BIO: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors and also named Big East Defensive Player of the Year as a senior after posting 65/23/20. Also intercepted one pass and broke up four more last season. Junior totals included 52/11.5/10.
POSITIVES: Explosive college pass rusher who makes a tremendous amount of plays in the opponent's backfield. Quick off the snap, plays with excellent pad level and works hard. Slides through the small creases in the offense, beats immobile blockers and loses no momentum changing direction. Possesses great speed off the edge, playing with outstanding balance and body control.
NEGATIVES: Short, gets caught up in the trash moving laterally and is slow shedding blocks. Driven off the line in run defense. Struggled during Senior Bowl week and at the combine.
ANALYSIS: Productive on the college level, Dumervil's best NFL position is yet to be defined. Size dictates a move to linebacker in a 34 defense.
