The Hidden Gem of this years draft ?


Dominick Le Grande Marshall University SS 6'3 210

40 : 4.41

Bench : 27 reps

Vertical : 39.5

I was watching some Marshall game footage last night , mostly looking at their WR Aaron Dobson , but when i was watching their defence play this guy just kept popping up , making tackle after tackle , laying the wood too .

Dominick Le Grande seems to have great instincts for the game along with size and athletic ability that NFL teams crave . His stats of 132 tackles ( 2ints ) on the season would also suggest a high football IQ as he always seems to find the ball early and gives him an edge diagnosing the play . He looks fast on tape and looks more like a WR than a SS but that should mean he has some room to bulk up in an NFL weight programme . With an extra 10-15lbs Dominick could be very destructive , he already is know as a hard hitter .

He is not a ball Hawk in the passing game but his cover skills are still above average . He has the size and speed to be able to match up well with NFL TE's and with some coaching from our wonderful D Backs coaches he has a very high ceiling in this area . He looks better playing zone as he seems to read plays easier when they develop .

Some negatives on him would be his lack of playing time over his college carreer . He played very little until he transfered to Marshall for his senior year . In 3 years previous he didn't make much of an impact at Boston College with just 72 tackles over those 3 years . Another would be the level of competition he has faced this year . But that didn't seem to hamper Vinny Curry last year .

His stock at the moment is low but just like Brandon Hardin last year , i expect some team to see what i see and draft him higher than most pundits think .Overall i see a guy with bags of potential who given time to sit and learn could be a very good SS in the NFL . If you were thinking of converting him to a FS the process might take a bit longer but i still think he could be a success there too .

Could Dominick Le Grande be the hidden gem of this draft ? i think so but what about you ?
