What the scouts are saying:
"Exceptional-sized zone cover man who was a big fish in a small pond as a Division II standout, though he did not look out of place at the Senior Bowl. Size, ball skills and anticipation will appeal to teams such as Seattle, Jacksonville and Tampa Bay." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)
"Desir has every physical trait desired in an NFL cornerback. He has an inspiring background story that clearly shows his motivation. Although his contributions might take some time, Desir could develop into the top cornerback of the 2014 draft class." (Ian Wharton, Bleacher Report)
"Desir is clearly a work in progress from a technical standpoint but with the NFL increasingly willing to gamble on size at cornerback, he could wind up among the top 100 selections of the 2014 draft." (CBSSports.com)
