When the Bucs took CB Jamel Dean in the 3rd round of the NFL draft, there was probably nobody as pleased with the pick than CB Carlton Davis.
In 2017 both Davis and Dean were the starting CBs at Auburn before Davis went to the Bucs in the second round of the 2018 draft.
Dean tested off the charts at the combine, running a 4.3 FYD, which was the fastest of any CB and put up a 41-inch vertical leap.
Just like Davis, Jamel Dean is a big CB at 6’1″, 210 lbs and also like Davis he specializes in press coverage.
Jamel Dean is extremely aggressive, constantly harassing the opposing WR and making it extremely hard for them to get off the line of scrimmage. One concern with him is his knees. He has had several knee surgeries since high school, but he seems to be back to 100 percent.
