Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Good overall athlete who is still learning the free safety position and could offer good upside. Excellent straight-line speed and possesses rare range as a centerfielder. Good teammate known to have excellent character and work ethic.

WEAKNESSES: Raw prospect who will require development. Lack of experience leads to too much hesitation in reading the action in front of him.

Player Overview

Deering is a former wide receiver and running back who converted to the defensive side of the ball as a senior and started 10 games.

Deering did not earn an invitation to the scouting combine, but did stay on the radar of NFL scouts with a strong pro day workout March 12. He was credited with a 4.40-second 40-yard dash, 18 reps on the 225-pound bench press, 33 1/2-inch vertical, 10'6" broad jump, 4.32 20-yard shuttle and a 6.99-second 3-cone drill.

With his lack of experience on the defensive side of the ball, Deering will need an NFL team to value his athleticism on coverage units while he develops his defensive skills. It will be interesting to see how Deering develops if allowed to stay at one position. He was recruited as a running back, moved to wide receiver in 2011, back to running back the following year and then to defense as a senior.

10/10/2013 - Pass defense smarting with Louisville up next...For No. 8 Louisville, respect is an additional motivation. The Cardinals have dropped in the polls over the past two weeks despite remaining undefeated because of concerns about their strength of schedule, and they will be looking for this nationally-televised matchup to state their claim as one of the elite teams in the country.

Rutgers' secondary isn't going to be elite by Thursday. It enters the game ranked 116th in the country in pass defense, and the way it performed against SMU it's not getting better anytime soon. There was no single point of failure to correct -- everyone on the field looked confused, blew coverages, missed tackles and looked sadly at Mustang receivers running down the field. Unless that unit performs better this week, the Scarlet Knights have little chance at ending what's been an underrated conference rivalry with a road victory. - The Sports Xchange
