I used to be sold on Darqueze Dennard, but I still question about his poor performance in the night against Stanford. It was so embarrassing in that night. I don't know if that was just a bad hiccup game, but still he played like bad Carlos Rogers/Nate Clements for falling on double moves. I am not really sold on Fuller, Roby and Verrett. Dennard and Gilbert are fine if they fall to our laps at 30th, but I'd be comfortable if Baalke or Lord Vangio scouted hard on Dennard before the draft.
Not sure where you got embarassing from. He shutdown Ty Montgomery, made him a non-factor in that game and was a huge reason why Stanford was limited to about 140 yards passing.
PASADENA, Calif. -- Stanford wide receiver Ty Montgomery was supposed to be the X-factor in the Rose Bowl, the difference-maker that could decide the 100th edition of the venerable game. But after Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi pointed out the pregame chatter about Montgomery to cornerback Darqueze Dennard at breakfast Wednesday, Montgomery ended up a non-factor.Montgomery caught just three passes for 21 yards, smothered by the Jim Thorpe Award winner in the Spartans' 24-20 win over the Cardinal."He does things like that all the time," Michigan State safety Isaiah Lewis said. "I'm even surprised he caught a pass, Darqueze is so good."Playing almost exclusively the press-man coverage that has become his trademark, Dennard (5-foot-11, 197 pounds) kept the speedy Montgomery from ever getting loose downfield, recording three tackles with one resulting in a loss of 2 yards."He has great technique," Lewis said. "Watching him play, it seems like he knows what route is coming before they even run the play. I'm definitely going to miss him, playing with the other guys in the No Fly Zone."
He was more consistent overall than any other CB in the draft this past season. Teams kept challenging him and he kept holding up and making plays throughout the season.
