Pittsburgh Tight End Dorin Dickerson
Dorin Dickerson: No. 2, TE, 6-2, 230
A versatile athlete who has seen time at both wideout and linebacker during his career at Pittsburgh, Dickerson showcases good overall speed and athleticism for a tight end and has the ability to consistently threaten the seam and make plays downfield. He gets out of his stance and up to speed quickly but is a bit of a strider once he reaches full speed. He exhibits good body control as a route runner and has the ability to snap off routes and work back toward the ball. He has natural quickness and the lateral ability to slip defenders off the line and has a good feel vs. zone coverage.
Dickerson is a natural receiver who can pluck the ball away from his body and attack the football downfield. He possesses good body control when asked to reach defenders at the second level but isn't physical on contact. He struggles to generate much movement on contact and stay on blocks through the play. He definitely has the ability to create some mismatches at the next level but is limited as a blocker.
