The Best of the B1G, #22 Darqueze Dennard

b1g_iconNumber #22 on our Top 25 list of B1G players is senior Darqueze Dennard from the Michigan State Spartans.  He’s a 5’11” 188 pound cornerback.  

As a junior, he played all 13 games and was selected as an All-Big Ten player, recording 52 tackles and 3 interceptions. What he brings to the team is a great blend of skills; he can play zone and man coverage, can break fast from the line of scrimmage, has impressive catch-up speed, and as an added feature, he can tackle.

He’s on the watch list for the Bednarik Award, given to the top defensive player of the year and already has the eyes of at least one NFL team.

Keep your eyes peeled for this guy. I believe it’s going to be a fun and exciting 2013 for this top-notch player.

  1. Looks like Michigan State will have another stellar defense this year. They’ll miss Gholston up front, obviously, but they’ll be solid in the back seven for sure.
