Anecdotal: A current college graduate with a degree in Sociology, and a masters student in liberal studies this prospect is one of the more interesting situations in this draft. This prospect has torn both acl's in his knees, but was an All-ACC performer before his second injury. An all-state receiver and lacrosse player in high school, he was an Academic All-American in 2011.

Final Thought: Deaver is one of the most intriguing prospects in the draft this year. A master's student, who has great blocking skills, soft hands, runs good routes, and runs like a gazelle. He also blew out both anterior cruciate ligaments -2012 to repair left acl and patella and 2014 to repair his right acl-. The surgeries could either mean that the ligament will never tear again, as it has been reinforced, or that it is weak and could blow out at any time. Deaver been praised for his leadership, leading workouts for teammates without coaches and mentoring younger players. When the draft occurs Deaver will be twenty-four years old. Deaver has underperformed as a Senior with only 19 catches and one touchdown.
