Major: Communications

What that means: He’s a a star athlete in a big-money sport at a state school.

Twitter: @DDennard_31

What his Twitter bio tells us: He’s blessed.

What his tweets tell us: When wheels are up, you’re going to know about it.

Appropriate song that accompanies his YouTube highlight video: Till I Collapse, because it’s usually white people making these highlight packages.


Potential Berman nickname: Nothing that won’t get him in trouble, somehow.

Weird line from his draft bio: “Knotty calves and thin ankles”

Less weird when you realize that his draft bio was written by Nolan Nawrocki and edited by: This bro.

Nicest comparison: Deion Sanders

Meanest comparison: Darrelle Revis

That seems positive: Eh, those were the only two I’ve seen.

Strengths: Strong, skilled and faster than expected.

Weaknesses: Did you not see the thing about his knotty calves and skinny ankles? Wait, is that a bad thing or a good thing? Is one good and one bad? I don’t know what the lower legs of 22 year old cornerbacks are supposed to look like.

Where he’ll go: Mike Tomlin attended his pro day, so let’s go with the Steelers.

What scouts are saying: “Hey, is that Mike Tomlin?”

What Nolan Nawrocki is saying: He called a black corner “deceptively fast,” so he’s not racist, guys.

Impact: Better than cousin Alfonzo.
