Draft Scout Phillip Dorsett News
02/21/15 - Phillip Dorsett doesn't disappoint in 40-yard dash...Miami WR Phillip Dorsett entered the week as the favorite to run the fastest 40-yard dash at the 2015 NFL combine. And he lived up to the hype with a 4.33 unofficial time Saturday morning. He clocked 4.35 in his first try and chiseled that down on his second run, putting himself as the leader in the clubhouse among the top 40-yard dash times. Dorsett's 4.33 time was impressive, but as a track athlete, it was almost expected. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
02/17/15 - 2015 NFL Combine: Five Bold Predictions...5. Fastest 40-yard dash...By now, everyone knows that Miami WR Phillip Dorsett and Auburn WR Sammie Coates are the favorites to run the fastest 40-yard dash in Indianapolis. Dorsett has the type of speed that could set records and is my personal pick to run the fastest time. But who are a few underdogs who could steal the crown? Florida State CB Ronald Darby led his high school to the Maryland 3A state championship in track, winning the 100-and 200-meter dashes, also earning a gold medal in the relay at the 2011 World Youth Championships in France. He has some mechanical issues as a prospect, but there is no questioning his speed. Miami RB Duke Johnson is so talented maneuvering through traffic, showing multiple gears to erase angles and the speed to turn heads in Indianapolis. Kansas State WR Tyler Lockett is undersized and has too many drops, but he flies like the wind and will test well in the 40-yard dash. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
02/16/15 - 2015 NFL COMBINE: PROSPECTS WITH THE MOST TO GAIN OR LOSE, AGILITY TESTS AND DRILLS: WR Phillip Dorsett, Miami (Fla.)...Entering the NFL combine, Dorsett is the favorite to burn up the track and run the fastest 40-yard dash at Lucas Oil Stadium. He claims that "anything under 4.3" is his goal. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/22/15 - 2015 Senior Bowl, Wednesday: Hurricane watch during South practice...The favorite to run the fastest 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine next month, Dorsett has “blur” speed to make defensive backs look silly. He has shown that sudden footwork at the line of scrimmage to beat press and the instant acceleration to win vertically downfield. Dorsett routinely won 1-on-1 drills against the South defensive backs, including his former teammate Gunter. However, there is such a thing as playing too fast and Dorsett will do that at times, losing footing or getting wild in his breaks. Nonetheless, he has the game-changing speed to not only make an impact on offense, but also as a return man once he adds seasoning and polish to his game. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
10/22/14 - In 2012, Phillip Dorsett's pride was hurt. In 2013, it was his knee. This year, nothing has slowed the speedy Miami wide receiver. At his current pace, Dorsett would be headed to the NCAA record book at season's end. He's averaging 34.4 yards per catch, leading the nation by a wide margin and a figure that's 2.5 yards better than anyone at the top level of college football has ever managed over the course of a full season with at least 30 receptions. For a player who was maligned for dropping a pair of sure-fire touchdowns in a nationally televised, prime-time, Miami debacle against Notre Dame two years ago, then saw his junior season wrecked at midseason by a torn knee ligament, everything is finally going his way.
"Everybody goes through slumps," Dorsett said. "I don't care who you are, you're going to go through something that's going to just change your life and make you a better person. Honestly, I'm happy that happened to me. Going through that, I know what to expect. I know what I can take. And honestly, nothing can get to me anymore." Apparently, that includes defenders. Dorsett has 16 catches, which doesn't rank among the top five on his team and is a total exceeded by 352 other players so far this season at the Football Bowl Subdivision level. But the story with Dorsett isn't the number of touches - and rather, what he's doing with them. All but three of his catches have gone for at least 20 yards. He had a 201-yard game on just four grabs earlier this season, and a 143-yard, three-catch game against Cincinnati earlier this month. - AP Sports
