03/07/2012 - Quotes from Alabama's Pro Day, DeQuan Menzie, defensive back...On the difficulty of the NFL Combine process: "It's just like getting recruited out of high school. It's a crazy process, but at the same time you just have to take it in and take it for what it's worth and just deal with it." On how he feels about playing free safety instead of cornerback: "I don't mind at all. I play it all. I played safety in the Senior Bowl, played safety in high school, played corner here and played in the middle spot. It really doesn't matter. Coach Saban put me through all of that." On what he will do until the NFL Draft: "It's real hard, but you've just got to keep focused and you've just got to keep training. That's what I'm doing - Me, Kirk, Dont'a and all of us are just going to keep training and getting better." - Alabama football

03/07/2012 - Quotes from Alabama's Pro Day, Head Coach Nick Saban...On DeQuan Menzie's day: "I think that everyone is going to look at the whole body of work. Hopefully (he) ran a little bit better today, I don't know, I didn't hear all the times that the guys ran but I think what you look at is, if you look at all of our film from last year, and you were a scout, you would say that this guy never looks speed-deficient on the field. He runs, he covers people, the same kind of people you are going to cover at the next level, very good nickel-back, what we call star, good blitzer, good tackler, very instinctive. He could probably be a cover safety at the next level, so because he is a good football player. I think people are going to find ways to use him at the next level."...On DeQuan Menzie's abilities, potential and what makes him successful: "I think the kind of football player he is, I mean people really like him on tape. He's been one of the best corners that we have had here, and if you look at the history of it, most of our guys have gotten drafted, and most have made someone's team. He's as good as or better than those guys. So, he is going to make someone's team and be a good player for someone, as well." - Alabama football

02/13/2012 - One NFC scout who attended Monday night's national championship game told The Sports Xchange early Tuesday that, while he considers the versatility of the Alabama linebackers the key to coach Nick Saban's defense, he feels that all four Crimson Tide secondary starters will be drafted. That includes cornerback DeQuan Menzie, who is probably the least heralded of the bunch. "They all play with such great recognition and football smarts," the scout said of a quartet that also includes cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, free safety Mark Barron and strong safety Robert Lester. "There's so little hesitation in the bunch and they play so well together, it's like they're joined at the hip. That is (Saban's area of expertise), and it shows." - Len Pasquarelli, The Sports Xchange

12/07/2011 - 2011 AFCA FBS COACHES' ALL-AMERICA TEAM: DB DeQuan Menzie, Sr., Alabama, has been selected to the 2011 AFCA FBS Coaches' All-America Team announced by the American Football Coaches Association. Menzie, from Columbus, Ga., provided the Crimson Tide great versatility in the defensive backfield with his ability to play both on the outside and inside at the star position. He started all 12 games and finished with 37 tackles, three tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, one interception he returned for a touchdown against Florida and a team-best 11 pass breakups. - Alabama football

11/14/2011 - Nick Saban isn't worrying about the various scenarios that could move Alabama up the BCS standings. The third-ranked Crimson Tide's coach said Monday he "could care less about that, because I don't understand it to start with." Alabama's unlikely to wobble the ratings much this week with FCS team Georgia Southern visiting. The Tide remains third in the BCS standings behind unbeaten LSU and Oklahoma State. Cornerback DeQuan Menzie says the team heard about the losses of previous unbeaten Stanford and Boise State on the bus ride home from the Mississippi State game Saturday night. He says the reaction was a subdued "yes!" Noseguard Josh Chapman says he just went back to sleep. - AP Sports
