Dell earned eight starts in 13 games played as a true freshman (20 receptions, 220 yards, two touchdowns). He again started eight games as a sophomore, averaging a robust 18.9 yards per reception (36-679) and putting up 202 yards on nine receptions against Cal early in the year. He missed the first two games of his junior year due to a shoulder injury, and managed to start only the final three contests while finishing with 26 catches for 449 yards and a score.
He bounced back as a senior to earn honorable-mention All-Big Ten honors after leading the Spartans with 51 receptions for 788 yards and six touchdowns. Dell does not have track speed, but teams looking for a No. 2-type, possession receiver with strength and good hands will consider him a mid-to-late round prospect with potential.
Strengths: Solid upper-body build with the strength to handle pro cornerbacks on the edge. Works hard to get a release and can use his hands to free himself from press coverage and gain separation downfield. Fits as a possession receiver running slants and crossing routes using his body to shield defenders, but can also get downfield. Solid hands, snatches ball outside his frame. Adjusts to off-target and back-shoulder throws, high-points passes using long arms and good vertical. Willing to hang onto the ball in traffic over the middle. Capable run blocker when giving effort, gets his hands inside and moves to sustain.
Weaknesses: Average straight-line speed. Will side-step oncoming defenders on the run, but lacks elusiveness after the catch. Needs to be more fluid to shorten up his cuts. Catches with his body when facing the quarterback. Must be more consistent attacking and sustaining against defenders when blocking downfield; too often his guy comes off to make the play. Limited in fall 2009 with a shoulder ailment. Pled guilty to misdemeanor assault (in exchange of dropped conspiracy charge and probation), suspended for 2009 Alamo Bowl for involvement in on-campus fight after the team's football banquet."
Positive: Adequately sized receiver who displays soft and reliable hands. Runs solid routes, comes back to the ball out of breaks, and effectively adjusts to the errant throw. Makes catches in stride, displays solid eye/hand coordination, and a sense of timing. Effectively uses his frame to shield away opponents. Consistently extends his hands and offers the quarterback a nice target then makes the reception away from his body.
Negative: Lacks a burst and is really a one-speed possession receiver who does not stretch the field.
Analysis: Dell elevated his game in 2010, going from free agent prospect to middle round player based on his senior season. He has the skills necessary to be a productive fourth receiver in the NFL if he continues to progress."
Strengths: He can high-point the ball, snatch it from outside the frame of his body, take a good whack and come down with the ball. He is an improving route runner and is learning to set up a defender with his moves.
Weaknesses: Dell has been suspended in association with th the Rather Hall incident; it has been said that a group of about 15 to 20 persons were involved in an incident where random students were assaulted. It also stated that some of the persons involved were "described as football players."
An unidentified junior student stated he had to go to Lansing's Sparrow Hospital to have injuries treated after he was punched in the face in the incident. MSU spokesman Terry Denbow confirmed an incident occured saying that the fight involved multiple victims and suspects according to reports.
MSU Sports Information Director John Lewandowski was reported as saying all questions about the incident should be directed to Denbow.
In terms of on-the-field performance, Dell could use 10 pounds of muscle and to be a bit more sudden into and out of his breaks. Additionally he has battled a nagging shoulder injury much of the season.
Projection: Should he declare he'll need to answer both character as well as durability concerns. If he is cleared in both areas he could go as early as the 2nd/3rd cusp, however if not he could go to or more rounds later."
