Dean appeared in all 17 regular-season contests and posted 13 tackles across 670 total snaps (33 defensive).
The smallish but explosive linebacker can contribute on all three downs. He has the quick feet and agility to get to the ball carrier, but his lack of size means he will have to improve his technique to ensure that he gets runners on the ground. Has markedly improved to become a dangerous blitzer. Has work to do in play recognition; his performance will improve as that happens.
Long Range Potential:
Versatile playmaking linebacker.
