Canadian DB Marc-Antoine Dequoy blazes 40-yard time at University of Montreal pro day

University of Montreal defensive back Marc-Antoine Dequoy put on a show at the Carabins pro day.

Two NFL teams, the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles were on hand at the Soccerplexe Catalogna. As were a pair of CFL franchises, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Montreal Alouettes. It was just the second pro day in school history.

Dequoy checked in at six-foot-two, 198 pounds, nine-inch hand measurement, 32-inch arm length with a 75 and six-eights wingspan. The rangy DB displayed his high end athleticism by recording a 37-inch vertical, 10-foot, eight-inch broad jump and wowed personnel men with his speed — clocking 4.35 in the 40-yard sprint — and quickness 4.14 shuttle and 6.65 three-cone.

When comparing Dequoy with 2020 NFL Combine invitees, he ranks first in three-cone time among all defensive backs, third overall for the 40-yard dash, sixth-best shuttle, vertical tied for sixth and broad jump tied for ninth.

Dequoy led the Carabins with 37.5 tackles in 2019 and registered one tackle for loss, one pass breakup and three interceptions during eight regular season games. The six-foot-three, 195-pounder had a game-sealing 85-yard interception return for a touchdown in the Dunsmore Cup upset at Laval. He earned USports first-team All-Canadian status.

The prestigious East-West Shrine Game extended Dequoy an invite where he played in Florida on NFL Network in January. That U.S. college all-star game has served as an NFL launching point for Canadians like Laval’s Antony Auclair, Manitoba’s David Onyemata and McGill’s Super Bowl champion Laurent DuVernay-Tardif in recent years.

Dequoy cemented his status as the most intriguing Canadian defensive back available in the 2020 draft class on either side of the border in the NFL and CFL. Film from Dequoy’s performance will be circulated to every NFL team and surely raise his stock in the eyes of talent evaluators down south.
