According to Doug Kyed, NFL Draft Analyst and Editor with the website NEPatriotsDraft.com, UCLA safety Tony Dye is headed to the Cincinnati Bengals. Dye is rated by ESPN's Scout Inc as the 22nd-best safety prospect in the draft, and the 240th-best prospect overall.

He's strong in run support with Scout Inc writing:

Makes a quick diagnosis in this area and is aggressive filling the alleys. Very good with angles and collisions, taking on blocks near the box. Also does a nice job of avoiding traffic in pursuit. A solid and reliable tackler who uses his long arms to wrap up. Can come in too hot and high on occasion, which can lead to a missed tackle.

On his instincts and recognition:

Overall awareness and diagnostic skills are adequate-to-slightly above-average. Flashes ability to anticipate and get an early break on the ball. Does a nice job of reading QB's eyes when aligned at the point. Will have an occasional blown assignment due to over aggressiveness. Confident in his ability and plays with good intensity.
