There are many wide receivers to be had in this year’s draft. I feel like that’s going to be the case every year from now on due to the offenses that happen in college. These guys, many of them, are ready to play right away. It’s why you see as many rookie receivers putting up veteran numbers in year one. Expect this to keep happening.
I love Jahan Dotson’s game. I know that Klump has bought the most stock in Dotson but I still have a bit that I’ve been holding onto for a few years.
As a PSU alumni, I’ve watched tons of Nittany Lions games the last few years which is to say I’ve watched a supremely talented player in Jahan Dotson have to make do with Sean Clifford’s attempts at throwing him passes. Even with the dearth at the QB position at Penn State, Dotson has shined seemingly each and every week mainly because nobody else there could.
Dotson was one of the players where everybody in the stadium knew where the ball was going. One way or the other, the ball was going to go in Dotson’s direction and most of the time he came down with whether guys were all over him or not. This one-hander immediately after a helmet catch from two years ago nearly brought me to tears.
He’s not the biggest guy on the field. He’s only 5’11 183LBs but he plays huge and he wants the ball in his hands. I imagine he’ll run somewhere in the low 4.4 for the forty so the guy has wheels. My player comparison for him is Tyler Lockett. Real good hands, can get behind the defense but can also be a possession guy if that’s what you want him to be.
Pairing him up with Jaylen Waddle, on paper, would be unfair. I hate when we get into on paper teams but Waddle and Dotson would be a pairing that, to me, wouldn’t miss.
