That speed appeals to every team, and the Eagles should be especially enticed. They do not have a proven deep threat, and their wide receiver corps as a whole lacks depth. As it stands now, the Eagles' top four receivers appear to be Miles Austin, Riley Cooper, Josh Huff and Jordan Matthews. Is there a true No. 1 receiver in that group? Can Dorsett be a No. 1?
Dorsett (5-foot-9 3/4, 185 pounds) lacks size, and there is concern from some that he will be effective only from the slot. He missed five games in 2013 with a MCL injury and finished his career with 121 receptions and 17 TDs; 10 of the TDs came in 2014, when he averaged 24.2 yards per catch on his 36 receptions.
The Eagles pick 20th overall, and that seems a bit early for Dorsett, who is considered a fringe first-rounder. But one of the more intriguing storylines of the draft is whether there will be a run on wide receivers in the first round -- and if there is, when will it start. Alabama's Amari Cooper, Louisville's DeVante Parker and West Virginia's Kevin White are lock first-rounders. Dorsett, USC's Nelson Agholor, Arizona State's Jaelen Strong, Oklahoma's Dorial Green-Beckham and UCF's Breshad Perriman are receivers who potentially could go in the first round.
Dorsett, who will be an in-studio guest on NFL Network's "Path to the Draft" and "NFL Total Access" on Friday, ranks 48th on NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah's list of the top 50 players.
