Scouting Report on Michael Dyer

On the Hoof: Dyer is one rocked-up ball of muscle that can bounce off of defenders like a pinball. He is a slightly taller Joe Morris, a two-time Pro-Bowler in the mid-80s for the Giants.
Needs Improvement: Pinball backs like Dyer need to show they are flexible and always playing at their ideal weight in order to keep optimum speed and durability.
Most Impressive: Most big, thick backs are not as good of pass receivers as Dyer. His soft hands will help allow him to get more touches in space.
Conclusion: If he can pick up college blitzes as a pass blocker, he should see time early and often. He is a difference maker and he needs to touch the ball as much as possible.

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
