Dezmen Southward

School: Wisconsin
Position: S
Positive: Full-time starter the past two seasons totaling 69 tackles as a junior, then defending six passes last season. Underrated safety with excellent size. Aggressively goes after runners and displays an explosive closing burst. Plays heads-up football, keeps the action in front of him, and effectively picks up coverage assignments. Contorts to knock away passes. Better than average range, showing the ability to get outside the numbers in pass coverage or run defense.
Negative: Possesses poor hands for interceptions. Struggles in man coverage situations.
Analysis: Southward was a forceful defender at Wisconsin and has shown terrific development the past three seasons. He offers potential as a zone safety though some scouts feel Southward can also line-up at cornerback.
