2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Dorin Dickerson, FB, Pittsburgh

Dorin Dickerson was a versatile athlete coming out of high school and was exactly the same during his time at Pittsburgh. As a freshman in 2006 he saw most of his time at wide receiver and on special teams. The following year he was a linebacker. Finally, as an upperclassman, he found his spot at the tight end position. In that first season at tight end he only started two games, but he did make 13 catches for 174 yards and two scores. That success paved the way for an amazing senior season that put Dickerson on the map and the NFL radar. During his senior campaign he ranked second on the team with 49 receptions for 529 yards. He also proved to be a superb target in the red zone and caught a team high ten touchdown passes. Dickerson is a vertical threat tight end. Pitt had Nate Byham to worry about the blocking and Byham is one of the best blocking tight ends in this class, so Dickerson rarely had to worry about it. Dickerson is a decent blocker down field, but at 6-2 and 230 pounds, that is not the case at the line of scrimmage. Yet, if an NFL team is looking for somebody who can stretch the field, Dickerson is the fastest and most athletic and agile tight end in this class. However, he is undersized for a traditional tight end and how he will exactly fit into a team's offensive scheme remains to be seen. Those uncertainties will drop him down to the third or fourth round, but Dickerson can be a great playmaker whether he lines up in the backfield or on the line of scrimmage. It will just take some time before he develops into a capable blocker.

Prediction: 3rd Round

will be a solid value in the third round. Doesn't have a legitimate true position, but can play halfback, fullback, H-Back, wide receiver, tight end, and linebacker.
