Scouting Report
Hailing from a Division II program hasn't seemed to be much of a detriment to Desir, a cornerback with a shot at going off the board in the second round. He emerged on the national radar at the Senior Bowl, and his size will attract teams looking for help against long NFL wide receivers. Desir's athleticism was displayed at the combine, where his broad jump of 11 feet, 1 inch ranked second among all players, though his 40-yard dash time (4.59 at the combine, 4.52 at his pro day) isn't quite that of corners projected to be taken ahead of him. While his overall athleticism led to a dominant four-year career at two Division II schools - Lindenwood and Washburn - one of the main knocks on Desir is he relies on that athleticism too much and could require substantial grooming in technique and improvement against the run before seeing playing time at the NFL level. Still, with 25 interceptions in four seasons and the vitals to match up with corners from major programs, Desir is seen as a potential NFL starter. Five NFL teams attended Desir's private pro day in March at Lindenwood, which has never had a player drafted into the NFL. He won the inaugural Cliff Harris Award, which honors the nation's top defensive player across Division II, III and NAIA programs. Desir is a native of Haiti and is married with two daughters.
