Bio: 
Two-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten in each of those seasons. Caught 37 passes for 401 yards and four touchdowns as a senior. Made 34 receptions for 318 yards and five scores in 2016. Posted 12 catches for 124 yards as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Dependable tight end or H-back prospect with an underrated game. Fluidly releases off the line of scrimmage, uses his frame to shield away defenders and nicely adjusts to errant throws. Extends his hands to snatch balls away from his frame, makes difficult catches in a crowd and works to separate from opponents. Bends his knees, plays with leverage and gives effort blocking.
Neg: 
One-speed pass catcher who lacks downfield burst. Not much of a factor blocking.
Analysis: 
Dickerson is not a top-flight athlete but is a solid football player who is well-versed in all areas of the game. He’s an H-back type with potential as a short-range target and as a blocker in motion.
