3 wide receivers Indianapolis Colts must target in 2022 NFL Draft
By Mike Luciano
Dotson might require a trade up, as he was the engine that made an iffy Nittany Lions offense go for most of the season. However, if a playoff-caliber team like the Colts thinks they got their guy, someone of Dotson’s caliber is absolutely worth giving up all of those picks for.
Dotson recorded 1,182 yards and 12 touchdowns on the season despite some bad quarterback play in Happy Valley. An elite speedster with amazing hands and body control for someone his size, solid verticality, and the ability to make plays as a field-stretcher, Dotson could be a No. 1 receiver if he develops properly.
Jahan Dotson would be a major weapon for the Colts.
At 5-11 and 184, Dotson is going to have some difficulties against bigger corners as a rookie. While still a solid athletic piece, he doesn’t have the stop-and-start skills that a player like Robinson has, meaning that he might not be as deadly with the ball in his hands.
Those issues should not prevent the Colts from trying to add a player like Dotson, who could be the perfect No. 2 to Pittman in his rookie season. Wentz and the passing game would reach the next level if they add a player of Dotson’s caliber.
