BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer who started the past two seasons at left tackle and guard.
POSITIVES: Dedrick has been a durable lineman the past two seasons, and he could find a home as a back-up guard if he adds bulk and strength
to his frame.
NEGATIVES: Lacks adjustment, lateral blocking range, and footwork in pass protection. Overextends into blocks, lacks balance, and is
on the ground too much.
ANALYSIS: College tackle who projects to guard at the next level. Blocks with good lean, patient in pass protection, and stays square.
Works his hands throughout the action, makes good use of blocking angles, and keeps his feet moving. Intelligent lineman who
quickly picks up blitzes and works well with teammates. Fights hard throughout the action.
