Scouting Report: Dorin Dickerson
Non-position specific categories
Tight Ends Specific Categories
|Red Zone Threat||8||4.5|
Versatile player. Has the speed to stretch the seams. Big and physical. Will fight for position. Good after the catch as he fights for yards. Does a nice job of high-pointing the ball. Good burst and can create separation against linebackers. Athletic that should be able to play multiple roles for a team. Has good special teams experience.
Not exactly a tight end prospect, but more of an H-back. Even though he’s seen time at fullback, he’s not much of an inline blocker. Route running is still developing. A project.
Dickerson has potential to pan out as an H-back type and could even see a full time transition to a wide receiver, or at least line up as a receiver in certain packages. Came to the Senior Bowl as a wide receiver and did a nice job while split out wide. He needs to work on his route running and stay in the film room for him to further develop, but he’s a boom or bust type guy. At the very least, he should be a nice special teams addition for a team with good potential as a pass catcher.
Only one full year of starting experience at the tight end position. Saw previous playing time at wide receiver, fullback, and outside linebacker.
