Miami's Phillip Dorsett caught just 36 passes during the 2014 season, but his speed makes him one of the more intriguing wide receiver prospects in the 2015 draft.
NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah said Wednesday during NFL Network's telecast of Reese's Senior Bowl practices that Dorsett (5-foot-9 5/8, 183 pounds) "probably is going to be the fastest player in this entire draft class."
Dorsett played at prep powerhouse Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas, where he formed a formidable duo with Florida State star receiver Rashad Greene.
"Some guys can run fast, but they have to work hard to do it, which limits what they can do out of their breaks," an NFC player personnel director told NFL Media analysts. "Dorsett is more natural with his speed and movement."
Dorsett missed five games in 2013 with a knee injury, but he showed no ill effects from the injury during the 2014 season, when 10 of his 36 receptions went for TDs. He also averaged 24.2 yards per catch in 2014.
He is not the only fast receiver on the South squad this week, though. Auburn's Sammie Coates (6-1 3/4, 213) also is a burner, but NFL Media's Mike Mayock said Wednesday that "while you love the speed," Coates' inconsistent hands are an issue that will be closely monitored.
