Notes:

Brother, Tim, was a four-year starter and team captain as a defensive tackle at Eastern Illinois and serves as a graduate assistant at Ball State. Dennis prepped in suburban Chicago, where he was a 240-pound tight end who also played basketball. Was slated to greyshirt, but put on enough weight to garner a scholarship and appeared in five games as a true freshman in 2008. Moved into the starting lineup and started all 37 games at left tackle 2009-11. Team captain and two-time team offensive MVP.

Summary:

Tall, lean, high-waisted, finesse pass protector still growing into his frame — needs to continue filling out and getting stronger. Tough and durable. Places his hands and can pop and recoil. Plays upright, shows some stiffness and struggles to quickly redirect or cut off fast-flowing linebackers. Experienced, three-year starter with terrific football character and a team-first attitude.
