Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DEZ FITZPATRICK: Louisville, 6021 202 4.50. Three-year starter, Farmington Hills, MI. A slot receiver who runs vertical routes well. Struggles to understand some of the pro style route concepts and spacing. He ran many routes lacking definition, which killed his chances to create separation. An underdeveloped route runner, he is quick in tight areas. Struggled against press coverage, unless the defender edged off the line at the snap. Displayed slower than expected feet versus press – often hopping or sliding into his releases. However, once his feet are square he explodes and shows great balance. He can play outside as well. Struggles to create separation versus top defenders in both press and off coverages. Showed ability to win at the line of scrimmage from time to time. Quick in tight spaces, especially if given ability to square up his feet. 2020 stats: 43-833, 19.4 ypr, 3 TD. Sixth/seventh round. (A-32 1/ 2, H-9 1/4, VJ-35, SS-4.25).
