Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Possesses true "see-ya" speed with easy acceleration to turn on the jets and erase pursuit angles from defenders and he should be a prime candidate for the fastest 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine. Explosive playmaker with his natural speed and ability to create after the catch.

Shows the ability to make an impact at all levels of the field, also helping out on special teams as a return man. Has terrific body control and tracks the ball well downfield.

WEAKNESSES: Undersized at just 5-9, lacking ideal size and strength for the next level. Has struggled throughout his career with easy drops in important situations. Pre-draft testing will be important to gauge whether Dorsett lost any of his trademark speed due to partial tear of MCL in 2013.

Player Overview

The Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. native chose the hometown Hurricanes over offers from Florida, Ohio State, North Carolina and Georgia, among others. Dorsett ran a 4.4-second 40-yard dash at the Under Armour combine, but was only a three-star prospect by Rivals.com and USPNU.

He saw action in all 12 games as a true freshman, finishing with 14 catches for 147 yards. In 2012, he again played in all 12 games, leading the Hurricanes with 842 receiving yards and four touchdowns.

Dorsett played in seven games, including six starts during the regular season as a junior. He missed five games due to a partial tear of the MCL in his knee suffered against North Carolina on Oct. 17. He finished with 13 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns during the regular season.

02/21/2015 - 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
