BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Academic honors in the past.
POSITIVES: Quick, explosive position blocker with a terrific head for the game. Immediately gets into blocks, quick out to the second level, and seals defenders from the action. Blocks with good pad level, stays square, and effectively fights with his hands. Plays with a nasty attitude and does an outstanding job quarterbacking the offensive line.
NEGATIVES: Undersized and not a dominant blocker who gets a lot of movement in the middle of the field. Slow to shed blocks and not a big, strong, sturdy defender. More of a chase-and-run-down defender than a linebacker who forces the action. Has growth limitations.
ANALYSIS: DeVan has been a durable and productive college lineman, yet he is a limited athlete who may struggle finding a spot at the next level.
