Scouting Report: Ed Dickson
Non-position specific categories
Tight Ends Specific Categories
|Red Zone Threat||8||5|
Very athletic tight end with good size. Natural hands catcher. Very fluid and a natural runner. Very good after the catch and is very elusive for a guy his size. Has the speed to be a vertical threat and stretch the middle of the field. Decent blocker. Maintained a 3.0 GPA in college. Has a lot of potential. Saw a lot of playing experience and became QB Jeremiah Masoli’s favorite target. Offers special teams upside.
Isn’t as physical as you’d like to see. Gives good effort as a blocker but isn’t going to wow anyone and he can be soft at times. A little slow off the line. Kind of a lazy route runner. May be more of an athlete than a football player.
Dickson is almost a really big wide receiver, and that’s the reason he was so successful at Oregon – because they split him out wide. He’ll give a good effort when blocking but he’s someone you want to give the ball to in the open field and let him make people miss. 2nd-3rd round prospect that may need to hit the weight room and show that he can be a physical presence.
26 consecutive starts at Oregon.
Awards and Honors
