Welcome back Ed Dickson

Posted on: September 26, 2009 6:18 pm
 
One of the missing elements of Oregon's offense over the first 3 games of the season had been big-play tight end Ed Dickson. The Cal Golden Bears, however, must be wishing Dickson hadn't discovered his game today, as the second-team All-Pac-10 pick has been unstoppable this afternoon, racking up 11 catches for 148 yards and 3 touchdowns with over 2 minutes still to go in the 3rd quarter.

Dickson has been used on a variety of routes, showcasing his unique blend of size (6-3, 245), strength, agility and speed. Blessed with soft hands and good vision in the open field, Dickson has caught everything thrown his direction and quickly turned upfield for positive yardage. His latest touchdown came off a screen, in which Dickson turned, caught the quick pass and read his blocks correctly to scoot free into the open field for a 36 yard score.

With his play today, Dickson certainly deserves consideration for Player of the Week honors in our fifth edition of the 2009-2010 Draft Slant, our weekly PDF on sale now .
