BIO: Four-year starter who led the team in receiving as a senior with 37/550/6. All-Conference selection as a junior after career-best numbers of 47/1,019/7.
POSITIVES: Solid pass catcher who flashes game-breaking skills. Stays low exiting breaks, comes back to the ball out and effectively shields opponents away with his frame. Adjusts to the errant throw and easily makes the reception running full speed. Good eye/hand coordination and extends to make the tough catch.
NEGATIVES: Does not display consistent hands or come away with the ball in a battle. Lacks deep speed and ability to run to the long ball. Routes lack sharpness. Marginal blocker.
ANALYSIS: After a sensational junior campaign, more was expected of Dickens last season but he was hampered by a foot injury early in the year. Must improve his fundamentals to have any chance of making an NFL roster.
