  • Dequan Menzie

    Looking for some opinions on him.

    Is he a safety in the NFL like mayock says?

    Where do you expect him to go if he's drafted to play corner...ditto for safety?

    Likes, dislikes, etc

I think guys like Menzie, Leonard Johnson, Stephone Gilmore, Omar Bolden, are gonna all be somewhere on reeses board...




    I hope Casey Hayward is on his board as well...

      He can play outside corner, but his value is inside covering the slot.

      He is physical against the run, can blitz, cover shifty slot receivers. He would be very valuable to any defense. This kid can be a true riser on draft day.

        Doesnt really fit what the giants look for. Could be a valuable nickelback for a lot of teams in the league though.

            I think some team will fall in love with what he can bring, and take him in the 3rd. Plus, I see T2 as being just as viable a slot corner. He is physical, he can blitz, if his knee is okay he can cover. I expect T2 to have Rolle's job as the nickel back.

              We're all pulling for Thomas but he is going to be a long way off till mid season.

I think he'd interest Reese bigtime to be honest... Hes aggresive, good with the ball in the air, versatile, hustle player..etc




                The giants just resigned Bruce Johnson whos 5ft 11in 182lbs.. Prince Amukumura and Menzie are almost identical in size, with Prince being a inch taller and 4lbs heavier... Justin Tryon just got resigned and hes only 5ft 9in 183lbs.. I would put Menzie in the TT/WEBSTER/PRINCE size/measurables category over guys like Tryon and Johnson... Hes closer to the that group then Tryon and Johnson...

                      I got a feeling your not that thrilled with my opinions but I am pretty familiar with Menzie since I live in Alabama and am SURROUNDED by Bama fans! First Nick Saben loves this kid and feels he has what it takes to play In the NFL . The previous comment that he is suited to cover the slot is correct. He is an annoying pesky pain in the butt to anyone trying to get free from him. He is not a hard hitter but a very good tackler. His projection to Safety must be cause of his 4.6 40. he has good game speed, good angles to the ball sidesteps blockers. I have not seen him in the safety spot so I can't say much on that projection. He is a quality kid and a very good football player. On a side note Reuban Randle could do little vs. Menzie. 2 games - total 5 catches for a miserable 32 yards an no score!

                        I guess I should add Dre Kirkpatrick contributed the the shut down of Randle but when Menzie had Randle coverage it was lights out! Menzie was targeted all year because of Kirkpatrick but teams had little success.

                          Thanks for.the input.

                          After learning his height I dont think the giants will draft him to play safety.

                              Giants are a very strict height/weight/speed team.

                              Menzie has good size, but is not a speed guy.

                              Thomas is the slowest CB Ive seen them draft, and he ran a 4.45. Menzie ran a 4.75....
