Alfonzo Dennard, Nebraska
Ht: 5'10, Wt: 203 pounds

Strengths: Dennard is at his best when he can be physical and play press man coverage. Uses good hand placement to make a play on the ball but not get hit with pass interference calls. As a high school wide receiver, Dennard has natural hands which he gets to use when he's playing in front of the receiver. Strong tackler. May be suited for free safety.

Weaknesses: Gives too big of a cushion at times and will be beaten when wide receivers work back to the inside. Is stiff in his movement and struggles to move laterally. May be best in the NFL at safety. Kicked out of the Capital One Bowl for fighting. Arrested for allegedly punching a police officer in the face.

Combine quotable: When I see a big receiver like 6-4, 6-5, I try to get my hands on them as much as I can because sometimes it frustrates them a lot. That’s what coach Pelini always told us, clamp your hands on a big receiver like that, so that’s what I will continue to do.
