"On the Hoof: Dyer is one rocked-up ball of muscle that can bounce off of defenders like a pinball. He is a slightly taller Joe Morris, a two-time Pro-Bowler in the mid-80s for the Giants.
Needs Improvement: Pinball backs like Dyer need to show they are flexible and always playing at their ideal weight in order to keep optimum speed and durability.
Most Impressive: Most big, thick backs are not as good of pass receivers as Dyer. His soft hands will help allow him to get more touches in space.
Conclusion: If he can pick up college blitzes as a pass blocker, he should see time early and often. He is a difference maker and he needs to touch the ball as much as possible.
