2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DAVID DEAN: Virginia, 6013 298 5.00. Three-year starter from Virginia Beach, VA. Finished 4th in school history in career tackles for loss. Team captain and honorable mention All-ACC selection as a senior. A hard working gap-plugger who doesn’t offer much pass rush or penetrative ability but can consistently hold the point of attack against the run. Has a thick, powerful build. Very powerful lower body and plays with a strong base and low center of gravity. Does a great job anchoring at the point of attack and can hold up against double teams. Has strong hands to grab and control blockers. Hard worker who plays with a great motor. East-West Shrine notes: Sudden first step quickness. A penetrator who plays low. Drives blocker into backfield. Beats the blocker to the punch. Looks like a good fit as a 20-25 play per game pass down plugger. Doesn’t stay blocked. Strong and effective hands to control the blocker. 2015 stats: 49 T, 8 TFL, 3.5 sacks, 3 PBU, 3 QBH, 1 FF. Not invited to Combine. Sixth/seventh round. (A-31 1/2, H-9, BP-33, 10-1.76).
