Tackle Breaking – Next Level
Contact Balance – Best in Class
In Game Physicality – Undeniable
Pass Protection – Pro Level Ready
These are 4 of the qualities Deejay Dallas possesses coming out of college that, to me, stands out at an elite level. He has the tackle breaking ability of Jonathan Taylor, the physicality of Keyshawn Vaughn and the pass protection ability of D’andre Swift. Now what I am going to tell you may come as a shock to you, but I will say it anyway. Deejay Dallas has the best contact balance of any incoming rookie. You didn’t misread that. The. Best. Yet he receives little love.
Deejay will not blow you away with outright speed or burst. No, he is not that “Physical Freak”, coming into the league at 5’10”, 210lbs, and running a 4.53 40 yard dash with a 33.5” vertical. Yet his 3 cone drill was fantastic at 7.18. This may result in you turning your cheek and replaying jonathan taylors combine. STOP and look at the situation.
Pete Carrol is an old school coach and plays the guy who gives him the best chance to win. Look at the current RB situation, Chris Carson a 7th round pick is the bellcow back, ahead of a 1st round injury plagued Rashaad Penny. Chris Carson is in a contract year, Carlos Hyde is a 1 year rental, and Penny can’t stay on the field. Who does that leave in the room? Deejay Dallas.
All signs out of camp are absolutely glowing, Russel WIlson praising his mental capabilities, understanding of the concepts, and his body preservation. Pete Carroll has mentioned his versatility in all aspects at the position and understanding the complexities of the scheme. Teammates have mentioned his physicality, where he will take a big hit and the very next play deliver a massive blow to the linebackers.
Talent and Opportunity are the two most important things in terms of fantasy production. Deejay Dallas has both, now on special teams and the potential vacancy of the position in 2021. Get you some Deejay Dallas.
