Some had Dennard going at the end of the first. Not after he slugged a police officer in the face at a bar at 2 in the morning. Dennard will defiantly drop in the draft because of this.
I'm not sure corner is the Raiders biggest need but this is a QB league and you can never have too many corners. Plus Alfonzo will fall under the best player available in Reggie's draft room.
Only 5-10/200 he is solidly built and is dependable in press coverage. He jams receivers well at the line of scrimmage and his rerouting skills are very advanced. Dennard also excels in zone coverage, and that type of scheme may be his best fit in the NFL. He is smart and doesn't have mental mistakes that get him caught out of position.
Reminds me a lot of Cortland Finnegan. Got in a fist fight with a SC wide receiver at the capital one bowl. Dennard and receiver were ejected.
Physical player, tough to get off the line against and willing to mix it up downfield. Fluid hips and good short-area to stay with receivers after initial move. Solid if playing off the line, as well, quick feet allow him to catch up to receivers if failing to get a hand on them initially. Deep speed and recovery speed are average, adding that to below-average height could spell trouble against playmaking NFL receivers downfield. Gets too physical at times, gets flagged for grabbing and holding.
Reggie might not like his attitude but if he's there at 95 I can't see Dennard not being the pick.
Should the Raiders get Dennard if available in the 3rd?
