Desmond Conner | UCONN Football
Bill was heavily involved. Eyes on the DBs mostly, and not only Darius Butler. He was looking at Dahna Deleston too who is a freak athlete and he hits like a ton of bricks. This kid is a Rodney Harrison-type hard hitter.
Unfortunately, Dahna is also completely lost covering in the backfield. He actually reminds me more of Lawyer Milloy covering on his worst days.
In other words, Deleston has all the tools to be a great safety in the NFL. But he has no instincts for the passing game. Belichick might be taking a look to see how smart the kid is, and he might be thinking of the kid in a Tank Williams-like role.
Check out Julius Williams' bench press and vertical leap in particular.
That's a defnesive end/linebacker.
I can guarantee that NO ONE at his position came close to those stats, not even Connor Barwin.
Then again, these tests don't tell us much about the ability to play football.
