Bio: 
Two-year starter who made 21 tackles in seven games as a senior before suffering a season-ending collarbone injury. Started eight games and posted 35 tackles in 2016. Made one start as a sophomore and recorded 38 tackles (four for loss), one sack and four pass breakups.
Pos: 
Athletic defensive lineman with size and terrific upside. Fires off the snap, plays with proper pad level and works his hands throughout the action. Rarely off his feet, moves well about the field and slides down the line of scrimmage. Plays with proper pad level and makes a lot of athletic plays.
Neg: 
Lacks bulk on the inside, shows average strength at the point of attack and gets handled by opponents rather easily. Marginally productive.
Analysis: 
Dickerson has shown flashes of next-level ability and improvement but is still an unfinished product. He needs to get stronger but has upside and is worth keeping on a practice squad this fall.
