Draft Rewind 2012 – Alfonzo Dennard – New England Patriots

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about ALFONZO DENNARD: Nebraska, 5100 203 4.55. Three-year starter who majors in man to man coverage. Gets position and plays with good technique. Has natural instincts and reactions. Always in position to make a move on the ball. Will lay out. Can get his hand on the ball to knock it away. Will line up nose to nose to jam a receiver. Good stance, balance, and strength. Physical striker. Doesn’t overextend or lunge. Smooth backpedal with a good base and quick feet. Can stay in backpedal as long as possible. Can transition out of pedal to all route angles. Good stop and go quickness. Quick plant and drive. Has a burst to close quickly on the ball. No false steps. Competitive and tough minded in his play. Plays with confidence. Aggressive with his hands. Has the perfect nickel or slot corner specifications of coverage ability, physicality, blitz ability, and his love of contact. Good foot quickness and sudden change of direction along with his special teams’ coverage ability give him a chance to play inside or on the outside. His leaping ability and timing override his lack of height on the match-ups with taller receivers on the outside. Missed first three games with a pulled right quad muscle. 2011 stats: 31 tackles, 6 PBU. BTR:left 4.72, right 4.74. OSR:14/35. First/second round. (A-30, H-9 1/4, VJ-37, SS-DNP).
