Ran a 4.4, is about 6' or 6' 1"

QBs had injuries his senior year, so didn't have the production.

Another big, gifted WR:


Source: Patriots worked out Maryland wide receiver Kevin Dorsey on Wednesday
by Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, April 25, 2013 at 3:24 pm ET

Kevin Dorsey Profile

University of Maryland wide receiver Kevin Dorsey conducted a private workout for the New England Patriots on Wednesday, according to a Terrapins source.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder caught 18 passes for 311 yards and three touchdowns last season.

The Terrapins had issues at quarterback all season, though.

Dorsey ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 17 times at his campus Pro Day workout in College Park.

He had a 10-10 broad jump and a 38-inch vertical leap.

He caught 45 passes for 573 yards and three touchdowns as a junior.

Dorsey is regarded as a potential late-round draft pick or priority free agent whose stock is regarded as rising, according to draft analysts.

Yeah, another big, fast WR. Not bad if he and or Johnson can stick.

Ted Thompson specials. Especially Johnson.

With Jones entering the final year of his contract, I get the impression they want a big, physical WR ready for the future with Cobb and Nelson (though his is up in 2014 I get the impression they'll try to keep him around). Of course, that's assuming either of them make the team.

the number 4 and 5 spots are open. I don't think Boykin or Ross are locks. It was like I was saying a couple of years ago. There is always going to be a crop of young guns out there. We don't need any one in particular. We simply need 1 or 2 of them on the team.

I get the impression Thompson scanned his list of priority UDFAs, and identified the ones most likely to get grabbed by somebody else or have a lot of competition for signing, and then drafted them in the 7th round - Johnson and Dorsey. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Packers keep 6 wideouts like in several past years also - 3 out of the 4 - the 2 new UDFAs and Ross and Boykin.
