— #Tennessee DE Byron Young visited the #Seahawks and is with the #Jaguars today, source said. He has 11 Top 30 visits.
— #Texas LB DeMarvion Overshown visited the #Cowboys yesterday and has the #Dolphins, #Texans, #Falcons, #AZCardinals and #Broncos, as well.
Originally a safety, Overshown (6’3, 229 pounds) spent his entire collegiate career at Texas, converting to linebacker after his second year. As a senior, Overshown managed 96 tackles, 10 tackles-for-loss, and 4 sacks, all in just 12 games. His experience in the secondary also makes him adept in coverage as a linebacker, as he recorded 17 passes defended over his entire collegiate career.
Overall, the general scouting report on Overshown is that while he’s an extremely athletic football player with great lateral speed, he lacks the size and technique to play linebacker in the NFL, and will need serious coaching if he’s ever to reach that level. He’s projected to go in the third round of this year’s draft, and the Dolphins have a few picks (Round 2 - Pick 51, Round 3 - Pick 84) available in that range, if they wish to select him.
