Mickey Plyler on DeHond: DeHond is a massive body. He is like most offensive line prospects in that he is raw but he comes from a good program and you can't coach his kind of size. On film he displays a nasty streak that Clemson coaches love. The other two offensive lineman can play inside or out but I think DeHond is a tackle all of the way.
