Scouting Report on Dion Bailey

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 08/25/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Ball SkillsBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Looks like a rocked-up, undersized linebacker in person. He has athletic legs and a very muscular upper body.
Needs Improvement: Needs to sink his hips and run his feet through ball carrier while tackling. Bailey is also a tad stiff in the hips and will need to work on flexibility.
Most Impressive: One of the best ball-hawks in the country, as he will sacrifice his body to make the pick. He also does a nice job reading and reacting to pass and run.
Conclusion: He already has the body structure and strength to play at the next level. Bailey will most likely redshirt as a freshman since the defensive back position is so reactive and coverage can be complicated at times.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
