Phillip Dorsett

2014 College Stats: 36 receptions, 871 yards, 10 touchdowns

According to multiple reports, Dorsett is really, really fast. He’s basically a clone of Hilton, and the two of them on the field at the same time could put uncomfortable amounts of stress on opposing secondaries.

It is expected that Dorsett will see the field a lot on special teams as a returner, but has a learning curve when it comes to the offense. There is no doubt that Dorsett was a first round talent, but 60-percent of his catches came on go-routes. He needs to work on his route tree which will limit his usefulness on the field. His low reception numbers are more a product of bad QB play at Miami than a deficiency in Dorsett’s abilities.

Dorsett probably won’t be on the field all that much unless the Colts utilize a four wide receiver set which would probably only happen when the team is down or in a two-minute drill. His usage will likely change as he gets more comfortable with the offense and the season progresses.

Dorsett and Moncrief both offer something different to the Colts offense and both can be utilized at the same time. The amount of stress the receiving corps will be able to put on opposing secondaries is going to be unbelievable. Good thing Pep Hamilton tore up those three tight end set plays.
