What went right: Dorsett was always going to be low in targets this season, as a fairly raw rookie. He showed flashes of basically being another Hilton and it’s tough to say how missing five games affected his development. At the very least Dorsett represents another dangerous receiving threat and will only become more talented as he fleshes out his route tree and gains experience.
What went wrong: It was a mistake to ever have Dorsett return kicks and punts. This isn’t something he did much of in college and just because he is fast, doesn’t mean he’ll be successful at a fairly difficult position. Dorsett didn’t have the kind of success you’d expect from either a first round receiver or future starter (like Moncrief did last year). But with his injuries this season (and others), it’s hard to judge how effective Dorsett can be in the NFL.
Offseason expectations: The Colts are likely going to try and reboot the offense they hoped for in 2015. A year of experience certainly doesn’t hurt Dorsett and if he develops in the offseason will be another deep threat for the Colts. The receiving corps looks awfully bright heading forward for Indy and is one of the few areas that doesn’t need much attention in the offseason.
