Dorin Dickerson was one of the most fascinating prospects of the 2010 NFL Draft class. He played pretty much every position known to man at Pittsburgh, playing wide receiver, tight end, fullback, and linebacker. He also was productive in his final season at Pittsburgh, catching 49 passes for 529 yards and 10 touchdowns as primarily a tight end. He also ran the 40 in the 4.4s, but at 6-1 228, teams were not sure what position he would play at the next level.
Dickerson fell to the 7th round for that reason and was drafted by the Houston Texans, where made absolutely no impact, catching 0 passes in 2 seasons and finishing the 2011 season on the Steelers’ and then the Patriots’ practice squad. He was signed by the Bills this offseason and has reportedly been seeing a lot of 1st team snaps as an h-back type player. The Bills don’t have a pass catching tight end on the roster so Dickerson could see a decent amount of catches in that area of the field this season.
