Overview

Dickson is an excellent receiving tight end that will give effort as a blocker but lacks the top size and bulk to be a dominating blocker at this level. He is quick on his release and shows a burst coming out of his breaks to separate from defenders. He has the downfield speed to stretch the middle of the field when running seam routes. He can show a tendency to short-arm some passes when going over the middle and in traffic. He has the speed and open field running skills to get a lot of yards after the catch.

Analysis

Strengths

Athletic and quick with good hip fluidity. Makes impressive cuts and has very good body control. Uses long arms to catch the ball away from his body and shows the ability to make the difficult grab. Very competitive and runs well after the catch.

Weaknesses

Lacks necessary strength to be a factor in the running game at the next level. Loses concentration sometimes on balls in traffic. Raw and inconsistent as a route runner. Does not always demonstrate proper body position to get open in tight spaces.
