  • Open-field ability: This is important factor for any wide-out because you can’t let the corners tackle you as soon as you catch the ball. The player needs to be big and strong and can withstand any kind of hit that defenders launch at him.

Dez stands at 6 foot 2 in. and weighs around 225 lbs. That makes for one beast of a receiver and one scary assignment for any corner to have to tackle. Just looking at how physical Dez can be, I think it’s fair to say he is one of the toughest receivers to bring down. You need to constantly gang tackle Dez if you are going to be successful at tackling him.  This is also his flaw and he can get hurt this way if he keeps playing this physical. But, you got to love how much this man loves to be physical.

Megatron stands at 6 foot 5 in, weights around 235, but he really doesn’t use all his body strength on the field. He uses his speed to break away from defenders to get open and rarely uses his strength to break out of tackles. A defender can tackle Megatron in the open field and will bring him down with ease, but to problem is catching him. For someone at his height and speed, those men are hard to catch.

Advantage: Dez!
