Deveys path to a successful college career was not exactly a cookie-cutter one. Devey did not play football in high school after suffering from Osgood-Schlatters while playing football in junior high. Instead, he played the tuba as a member of the American Fork High School band. He also turned down multiple music scholarships to serve an LDS church mission after graduating from high school. However, his knee condition subsided and he went on to play football at Snow College. Devey started every game at left guard during his freshman season in 2009 before transitioning to left tackle in 2010. Following the 2010 season, he was named the team's Offensive Player of the Year and earned all-region and all-conference honors.
Dewey started all 12 games in his first year at Memphis, as he bounced around the offensive line. He had five starts at right tackle, one at right guard, and six at left tackle. As a senior, Dewey started in all 12 games once again, and recorded two starts left guard, and 10 starts at left tackle. Dewey did not miss a single offensive snap in his time at Memphis.
Future Hall of Famer
A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played
An impact player with the ability/intangibles to become a Pro Bowl player. Expect to start immediately except in a unique situation (i.e. behind a veteran starter).
A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.
A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
A player with solid measurables, intangibles, college achievements, or a developing skill that warrants an opportunity in an NFL camp. In the right situation, he could earn a place on a 53-man roster, but most likely will be a practice squad player or a camp body.
