Dorin Dickerson caught the eyes of many during the 2010 Scouting Combine, posting a 4.4 time in the forty-yard dash and having a 42-inch vertical. What makes his totals even more special is that he's a 6-2, 226-pound wide receiver/tight end.
Dickerson never could make the most of his gifts when he was drafted in the seventh round by the Houston Texans. He has bounced around the league a couple times and still hasn't posted a single reception yet in the pros.
He was last seen with the Steelers and Patriots on their practice squads.
That may soon change. The Buffalo Bills are interested in Dickerson, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
This isn't the first time Buffalo has been interested in athletic freaks. The Bills currently have tight end Fendi Onobun on the roster, who used to play basketball at Arizona.
Last year, they used their seventh-round pick on big 6-4, 400-pound Bethel defensive tackle, Michael Jasper. Jasper posted a 5.5 in the combine, which is good for his size. He is currently listed at 375 now and is playing on the o-line.
We'll see how things go for Dickerson. Best of luck.
