Biography: Former defensive lineman who's been a three-year starter at tight end. All-Conference selection after his senior and junior seasons. Totals last year included 42/51/6 after 35/508/3 as a junior. Sophomore numbers included 43/453/3.

Positives: Terrific pass-catching tight end who displays the ability to get downfield and make the reception. Runs well for a tight end, consistently gets into the secondary and natural catching the ball. Easily adjust to the errant throw, plays with good balance and makes the reception away from his frame. Gets up between defenders, displays good eye/hand coordination and uses his size as an advantage. Runs solid routes, displaying above-average quickness into breaks and then staying low on exit. Blocks with solid fundamentals and works hard until the whistle blows.

Negatives: Marginally strong at the point of attack and struggles handling opposing linebackers. Must improve his blocking balance.

Analysis: Dickson has been a consistent player the past three seasons and the tight end who offers a nice degree of upside potential. He would be best in an offense that puts him in motion and makes pass catching his number one priority.

Projection: 3rd
