Canadian defensive back Marc-Antoine Dequoy has signed a priority undrafted free agent contract with the Green Bay Packers, per  NFL sources.

The University of Montreal product put on a show at the Carabins pro day in March and it supercharged his NFL interest. Two NFL teams, the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles were on hand at the Soccerplexe Catalogna.

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 ranked 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 took advantage of the chance to be in front of NFL personnel men and it’s paid off
