Bio: 
Two-year starter at right tackle. Missed three games due to a knee injury in 2016. Came to Arizona on a track and field scholarship before joining the football team. Moved from the defensive line to tight end before settling in on the offensive line.
Pos: 
Tall, strong blocker best in a small area. Quick off the snap, keeps his feet moving and his hands active. Sets with a wide base, works to bend his knees and stays square. Fires out to the second level and gets a pad on defenders to disrupt them from their angles of attack.
Neg: 
Stiff, struggles to adjust and gets beaten by inside moves. Lacks footwork in space and rumbles about the field.
Analysis: 
deBeer is a size prospect who plays with solid fundamentals but is a limited athlete with marginal upside potential.
