Draft Scout Jeremy Deering News
06/01/14 - S Jeremy Deering was waived by the Patriots May 22.
10/10/13 - Pass defense smarting with Louisville up next...It's possible the Scarlet Knights were looking ahead to this week's clash with Louisville when they took the field against Southern Methodist last Saturday. If you're a Scarlet Knights fan, you're certainly hoping that's the case, at least. For the second time in 2013, the Scarlet Knights took on an offense that likes to move the ball through the air, and for the second time, the secondary proved unequal to the task. Garrett Gilbert threw for 484 yards and five touchdowns, and only a strong performance from the Rutgers' offense kept the team from losing. As it was, it took three overtimes to earn a 55-52 win.
Rutgers also allowed Derek Carr to throw for five touchdowns in the season opener, though it held the Fresno State quarterback to a measly 456 passing yards. Neither game inspires optimism with Teddy Bridgewater, a likely top pick in the NFL draft whenever he turns pro, awaiting Thursday night.
The Cardinals and Scarlet Knights were conference rivals in the Big East, and both leave the newly-named AAC for greener pastures after the season with Rutgers heading to the Big Ten and Louisville to the ACC. The winner of this has an inside track to the conference title, which Louisville won last year in part because Rutgers blew an 11-point lead to the Cardinals at home. - The Sports Xchange
10/10/13 - Pass defense smarting with Louisville up next...For No. 8 Louisville, respect is an additional motivation. The Cardinals have dropped in the polls over the past two weeks despite remaining undefeated because of concerns about their strength of schedule, and they will be looking for this nationally-televised matchup to state their claim as one of the elite teams in the country.
Rutgers' secondary isn't going to be elite by Thursday. It enters the game ranked 116th in the country in pass defense, and the way it performed against SMU it's not getting better anytime soon. There was no single point of failure to correct -- everyone on the field looked confused, blew coverages, missed tackles and looked sadly at Mustang receivers running down the field. Unless that unit performs better this week, the Scarlet Knights have little chance at ending what's been an underrated conference rivalry with a road victory. - The Sports Xchange
09/04/13 - Scouting the Rutgers pass defense: The new-look Rutgers secondary got torched early and often by Fresno State, but should have an easier time against Norfolk State. The Spartans played a pair of quarterbacks in their opener against Maine, but neither Tyler Clark nor Malik Stokes showed any signs of effectiveness. The two combined to go 13-for-38 for 144 yard last week, so if the Scarlet Knights struggle on pass defense again that doesn't bode well for the future. - The Sports Xchange
08/12/13 - OTHER RUTGERS PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: FS Jeremy Deering (6-2, 210, 4.48)...A tremendous athlete who has played running back, wide receiver and even quarterback in his time at Rutgers, and now undertakes the safety position as a senior. One of the nation's best kick returners in 2011, averaging 31.4 yards per attempt. Could this be the year he solidifies himself at a position, and can he turn the heads of NFL scouts in the process? - Derek Stephens, NFLDraftScout.com
