Summary

He is a great speed WR with good size who had a so-so Sr. year, but really flashed in the Senior Bowl to move himself up the draft charts. He is an outstanding deep threat and was in a pro-style offense in college. He is an excellent athlete, shows a burst, can separate, and has home run type abilities. He is also a pretty good route runner, and he is dangerous in the open field. The knock on him has been the fact that he drops more balls than a premier WR should. He can make a dramatic catch on one play, then drop an easy pass on the next. If he gets more consistency in his receiving skills, (it may be due to a lack of concentration rather than a physical deficiency) he could be an outstanding deep threat in this draft. The one thing nobody can coach is speed, and Dyson has it.
