DeMarcus Van Dyke
Round 3, Pick 81
Position: CB
Class:  4Sr
School: Miami-Fl
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-0.5
WT: 176
40 Time: 4.25
Biography: Part-time starter the past four years. Had 20/2/5 as a senior and 30/1/3 as a junior.

Positives: "Physically gifted cornerback who never pulled together a complete game on the college level. Quick-footed in reverse, can flip his hips in transition, and shows a burst of speed. Physical, will mix it up with receivers throughout the route, and aggressively defends the run. Takes on bigger opponents. Gives effort on special teams, specifically on coverage units."

Negatives: Struggles making plays with his back to the ball and slow getting his head around to locate the pass in the air. Possesses a thin build. Adequate burst out of his plant.

Analysis: Van Dyke displayed a variety of NFL type skills throughout his college career and performed well for scouts in the postseason. He has the fundamentals to play for a team at the next level. Van Dyke is a developmental prospect with the ability to see action as a rookie.

Projection: 4
