Third round pick CB Jamel Dean knows how to make a good first impression. Last week during camp he got his hands on 2 passes and took one to the house, after an INT. Coach Bruce Arians had this to say about Deans play last week.
“He should have had a pick-six on a tip, and he kinda hesitated. The second he made a heck of an INT and took it back.”
Dean is a big CB at 6’1″ and 210 lbs and was the fastest CB at the combine and second fastest player in the entire draft. Having his former teammate from Auburn Carlton Davis sure doesn’t hurt. Dean had this to say about his former teammate.
“It makes me feel more comfortable here knowing that I played with someone here.”
Look for Dean to possibly push for a starting spot as he excels in press coverage.
