Overall

Deon Cain is a junior speedster at Clemson. He is limited in college and held back due to the team spreading the ball so much and his limited route tree. He has solid hands and speed to blow the top off a defense. NFL teams will fall in love with his speed and his skill set. He has the frame to grow a little and add some muscle to help with blocking and fight off press coverage. He will be a great compliment receiver at the next level. Currently he is looking to be a day 3 pick come draft day.
