2015 Player Profile #20: Dylan Remick

Though he ended 2015 as the third left back, the 24-year-old could still be a starter in 2016.

Another late draft pick that's contributed for a few years, Dylan Remick is approaching a crossroads. He earned regular playing time in the last two years, but his future is unknown. The Brown University grad may just be a rotational player, but that's much better than the vast majority of the 2nd round of the 2013 SuperDraft.

Rank: 20 | Age: 24 | Starts: 21 | Appearances: 23 for 1926 minutes | Bench: 12 | Goals: 0 | Assists: 0
all comps, 1st team


Decent left foot, but needs to time service better to snag a couple more assists. Not a shooter. Good at flaring forward in possession. Has the speed to recover. On dead balls should be one of the safeties preventing a counter.


Can be exploited in one-on-one situations. Is best at managing available spaces, but needs to grow in on-man defense. Good range and can help as a left mid in situations. On set-pieces should be part of the release group, not within the scrum. Can supplement dead-ball situations if other attackers are better to start the counter.


Fast with a good engine, a bit slight. Doesn't use his body often. Not a good leaper, but fast.

Best Case 2016:

This is the year for Dylan to show that he can be a regular starter. There is again competition at left back, but Remick is left-footed and not a natural winger, so he could earn more starts than Joevin or Oniel.
