DeMarcus Van Dyke Scouting Report
DeMarcus Van Dyke
DeMarcus Van Dyke - Miami (FL) (HT: 6-0¾ - WT: 176)
Combine 40: 4.28 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 23 of 45

Positives: Possesses incredible speed, was the fastest player at the 2011 combine... Has good height for the position... Has pretty good agility and change-of-direction ability... Breaks down well in space... Has a lot of untapped potential, physical tools are above-average... Generally takes pretty good angles on the ball, not a great playmaker, but does a good job breaking up passes when in position... Durability does not seem to be an issue, no major injury issues.

Negatives: Needs to add some bulk to his frame, is a little thin for his height... Instincts are below average at best, seems to lack consistent focus on the field... Looks a little awkward in the backpedal... Not a great tackler, is too thin to consistently make solid contact, has difficulty shedding blocks... Is incredibly raw at the position... Not a great cover corner at this point, can defend the deep ball, but is out of position far too often... Not great production in college, just three interceptions and 79 tackles in four years.
