05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Browns picks: Round 4/127 -- Pierre Desir, CB, 6-1, 198, Lindenwood...Desir played two years at Washburn University before transferring to Lindenwood. He intercepted 25 passes in four seasons. He is quick and long. The Browns like his size and expect him to contribute on special teams. - The Sports Xchange

05/08/2014 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 85/11. Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood, 6-1, 198, 4.52, 3...Haitian-born, Desir moved to U. S. when he was four and spent youth playing soccer, the sport in which his father, Wilfrid, starred. But while playing football at two Mid-American Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) colleges -- Washburn and Lindenwood -- Desir showed natural ability and collected 25 career interceptions. Fluid, flexible mature athlete with wife and two children who dominated low level competition. Frankly: Best MIAA prospect since? Of course you said Pittsburg State's DE Troy Wilson (21 sacks in 1991 to help win DII National Championship; 46 career sacks from 89-92; drafted in seventh round by San Francisco in 1993, in time to win a Super Bowl ring after 1994 season). - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/2014 - 2014 NFL Draft Defensive Backs: Pierre Desir, Lindenwood, 6-1, 198, 4.59...Haitian-born, Desir moved to U. S. when he was four and spent youth playing soccer, the sport in which his father, Wilfrid, starred. But while playing football at two Mid-American Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) colleges -- Washburn and Lindenwood -- Desir showed natural ability and collected 25 career interceptions.

01/22/2014 - 2014 Senior Bowl Wednesday...Given the Seattle Seahawks' success with long, athletic cornerbacks, scouts are keeping a close eye on the North's towering trio of Lindenwood's Pierre Desir (6-foot-1, 191 pounds), Nebraska's Stanley Jean-Baptiste (6-foot-2, 213 pounds) and North Carolina State's Dontae Johnson (6-foot-2, 199 pounds). Each had their moments on Wednesday, with the small-schooler Desir perhaps showing the best fluidity and speed of the group. While an impressive athlete, Desir literally let an opportunity slip through his fingers in dropping an easy interception midway through practice. Desir read a telegraphed pass from Clemson's Tajh Boyd, stepping in front of the wideout near the goal-line. Desir's ball-skills have stood out on tape but this pass slipped through his hands and bounced off his pads, bouncing into the air with an audible thud that could be heard high in the stands. The pass resulted in an incompletion rather than the turnover that could have turned a good play into a great one for the D-II All-American. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/18/2014 - PROSPECTS WHO HELPED THEMSELVES AT THE SHRINE GAME: 3. CB Pierre Desir, Lindenwood (6-1, 205, 4.56, #3)...It was an up-and-down week for Desir, who impressed in a few drills, but also struggled in others. He looks the part with a tall, long frame for a cornerback, but also showed the flexibility and balance you want for the position. Desir struggled at times to flip his hips or recover after false steps, but if he runs well at the Combine, look for Desir to be a hot commodity on day two of the NFL Draft. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/13/2014 - 2014 SHRINE GAME: TOP-10 PROSPECTS TO WATCH: 4. CB Pierre Desir, Lindenwood (6-1, 205, 4.56, #3)...A tall, long athlete, Desir has an interesting background and he can flat out play. And it will be interesting to see him matched up against FBS talents throughout the week. A native of Haiti, Desir started his collegiate career at Washburn before transferring to Lindenwood and he now has his sights on the NFL. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/13/2014 - 2014 Shrine Game: Monday Practice Report...Lindenwood CB Pierre Desir entered the week as one of my top defensive prospects in St. Petersburg and he did little to persuade me from that thought during Monday's practice. He looks the part with a tall, long frame and he does a nice job staying low and fluid in his stance, backpedal and overall transition. Desir is going up against FBS-level wide receivers this week like Miami's Allen Hurns and Michigan's Jeremy Gallon, but he hasn't looked out of place through one day of practice. He also received praise from the coaching staff for his ball awareness to get his head turned, find the ball and come off his man to pursue the ballcarrier. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/02/2014 - 2013 ASSOCIATED PRESS LITTLE ALL-AMERICAN FIRST TEAM: DB Pierre Desir, senior, 6-2, 206, Lindenwood,...In two years with Lindenwood, Desir intercepted 13 passes and record 30 passes defended. He earned AFCA All-American honors in both 2012 and 2013, and was a first-team All-MIAA selection both of those seasons. He led the MIAA in passes defended per game this year despite teams throwing away from him nearly 95 percent of the time. Desir was also a two-time member on the MIAA Academic Honor Roll. - Lindenwood football

01/01/2014 - 2013 AFCA DIVISION II COACHES' ALL-AMERICA TEAM: DB Pierre Desir, Sr., Lindenwood (Mo.),...Desir was named the inaugural winner of the Cliff Harris Award. The award is given to the Small College Defensive Player of the Year. Desir was chosen from a group of more than 5,000 athletes representing almost 500 NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, and NAIA colleges and universities.

Desir was a three-time All-American and four-time all-conference performer during his college career, which saw him play two years at both Washburn and Lindenwood. He is the all-time MIAA leader in career passes defended with 52, and is second with 25 career interceptions. In two years with Lindenwood, he intercepted 13 passes and record 30 passes defended. He earned AFCA All-American honors in both 2012 and 2013, and was a first-team All-MIAA selection both of those seasons. He led the MIAA in passes defended per game this year despite teams throwing away from him nearly 95 percent of the time. Desir was also a two-time member on the MIAA Academic Honor Roll. - Lindenwood football

12/24/2013 - 2013 CLIFF HARRIS AWARD WINNER (SMALL COLLEGE DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR): Lindenwood's Pierre Desir was named the inaugural winner of the Cliff Harris Award on Tuesday. The award is given to the Small College Defensive Player of the Year. Desir was chosen from a group of more than 5,000 athletes representing almost 500 NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, and NAIA colleges and universities. "It is truly an honor and a blessing to receive the Cliff Harris Award," Desir said. "I am grateful to receive this award, especially since there are so many great defensive players out there."

Desir was a three-time All-American and four-time all-conference performer during his college career, which saw him play two years at both Washburn and Lindenwood. He is the all-time MIAA leader in career passes defended with 52, and is second with 25 career interceptions. In two years with Lindenwood, he intercepted 13 passes and record 30 passes defended. He earned AFCA All-American honors in both 2012 and 2013, and was a first-team All-MIAA selection both of those seasons. He led the MIAA in passes defended per game this year despite teams throwing away from him nearly 95 percent of the time. Desir was also a two-time member on the MIAA Academic Honor Roll.

The award is named in honor of former Dallas Cowboys great Cliff Harris. Harris, an Arkansas native, was offered only one college scholarship at then-NAIA Ouachita Baptist University. After college, Harris was passed over for the 1970 NFL Draft. Harris signed a free agent contract with the Cowboys and then helped Dallas to five Super Bowl appearances during the next decade. Harris played in six Pro Bowls, was a four-time first-team all-NFL player, and was inducted into the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor. - Lindenwood football

08/21/2013 - Senior Bowl announces 400+ player Watch List...One reason for the jump in numbers comes from an obvious greater focus on small school players. A total of 57 FCS players are listed on the Watch List, ranging in names from Liberty cornerback Walt Aikens to South Dakota State cornerback Winston Wright. The Senior Bowl annually invites a number of exceptional "small school" prospects to play with the FBS stars. Arkansas Pine-Bluff's Combine phenom Terron Armstead caught the attention of scouts in Mobile long before running the 40-yard dash in Indianapolis.

The New Orleans Saints' offensive was joined by Missouri Southern defensive tackle Brandon Williams (Baltimore Ravens) and Southeastern Louisiana cornerback Robert Alford (Atlanta Falcons) as other FCS and Senior Bowl standouts who ultimately top 100 selections in last year's draft. The Senior Bowl is widely regarded as the foremost college football all-star game. The Mobile, Ala. based contest pits two teams of senior prospects from across the country led by NFL coaching staffs. The 2014 game is scheduled to take at Ladd-Peebles Stadium on January 25, 2014. More information about the Senior Bowl can be found at their official website, www.SeniorBowl.com. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
