With their seventh round pick (224th overall) in the 2013 NFL draft, the Green Bay Packers select Kevin Dorsey, a WR from Maryland.

PLAYER DETAILS: 
Kevin Dorsey
WR
Maryland
6’2″/207 lbs

CAREER NOTES:

(from CBSSports.com)

A talented fifth-year player who served as the No. 1 receiver for his final two seasons … an intelligent, polished receiver with excellent size and soft hands … a preseason All-ACC selection … fourth team preseason all-conference pick by Phil Steele … has overcome foot injuries to become a productive performer … played in 47 career games with 23 starts … voted one of four team captains at the end of the spring.

PRO DAY:

40-yd.: 4.47s … bench: 17 reps … vertical: 38″ … broad: 10’10″ … shuttle: 4.28s … 3-cone: 7.08s

SCOUTING REPORT:

(from NationalFootballPost.com)

Strengths:

  • Initial quickness and smooth start from LOS lets him get down field quickly.
  • Plants foot well on slant routes.
  • Good hands and awareness to make plays on the ball.

Weaknesses:

  • Does not get much separation.
  • Unwillingness to block on run plays.
  • Sometimes rounded out his routes – not crisp.

COMMENTARY:

The Packers have now selected two OL, two RBs, and Dorsey makes the second WR. He and the newly acquired Charles Johnson will definitely be battling for a spot on the roster, but it’s interesting to note that they both share a similar height and weight. Johnson’s Pro Day numbers were a little better than Dorsey’s, though. He’ll definitely need to work on his route running if he wants to make it in the Packers offense.

(NOTE: Dorsey wears #12. This is about the best I could find for some highlights of him.)

    He seems like a solid WR. His physical measurables appear to be very similar to last year’s pick, Jarett Boykin, out of Virginia Tech. I hope all the receivers make the team, develop and thrive in the Packers system.

      Boykin wasn’t a draft pick, he was an udfa. And Boykin in just like Jones. Not exceptionally fast but able to get some separation. Both the WR drafted this year are much more speed oriented and have higher upside IMO. I like Boykin and think he’ll be a good #4 WR. It wouldn’t surprise me if one of these guys passed Boykin. They are much more athletic,
