With their seventh round pick (224th overall) in the 2013 NFL draft, the Green Bay Packers select Kevin Dorsey, a WR from Maryland.
A talented fifth-year player who served as the No. 1 receiver for his final two seasons … an intelligent, polished receiver with excellent size and soft hands … a preseason All-ACC selection … fourth team preseason all-conference pick by Phil Steele … has overcome foot injuries to become a productive performer … played in 47 career games with 23 starts … voted one of four team captains at the end of the spring.
40-yd.: 4.47s … bench: 17 reps … vertical: 38″ … broad: 10’10” … shuttle: 4.28s … 3-cone: 7.08s
- Initial quickness and smooth start from LOS lets him get down field quickly.
- Plants foot well on slant routes.
- Good hands and awareness to make plays on the ball.
- Does not get much separation.
- Unwillingness to block on run plays.
- Sometimes rounded out his routes – not crisp.
The Packers have now selected two OL, two RBs, and Dorsey makes the second WR. He and the newly acquired Charles Johnson will definitely be battling for a spot on the roster, but it’s interesting to note that they both share a similar height and weight. Johnson’s Pro Day numbers were a little better than Dorsey’s, though. He’ll definitely need to work on his route running if he wants to make it in the Packers offense.
(NOTE: Dorsey wears #12. This is about the best I could find for some highlights of him.)
