He has good speed and is learning to be a good route runner. He wants the ball, but is a team first guy. He will get out on the edge and block hoping to spring a running back for a big gain if that is what is needed.
One of the things I like most about D.J. is that he is a finisher. After watching him on tape and in person, it is clear he is a winner who will do all he can to move the team ahead.
Kirby Wixson - (2012) Wixson plays center for the Pirates, but could play either of the guard positions on the college level.
Kirby has a gritty, blue collar appeal. He enjoys getting his guy on the ground and out of the play. He plays with a toughness that you expect to see from college prospects.
Wixson carries his weight well and with some time in a college weight room he should be one of the stronger prospects on the field.
Ronald Perry - (2011) Perry has transformed himself into a nice looking prospect. Two seasons ago he broke out on the high school as an offensive guard with a little baby fat. Ronald's a trim, athletic offensive tackle now.
Ronald needs to develop more of a mean streak, but he has a nice base to work with. He keeps his man in front of him and maintains control of him more times than not.
Shaquille Smith - (2011) Unfortunately, Smith was injured and missed the game. He has put on a few pounds of good weight and appears to be in great shape.
He plays linebacker on the high school level and could play a weakside spot as a linebacker. He has the speed to play strong safety if called upon.
