Green Bay Packers Training Camp Profile: Kevin Dorsey

+Read full article
Kevin Dorsey

Mitch Stringer – USA TODAY Sports

Rookie receiver Kevin Dorsey‘s collegiate football career doesn’t predict a successful future in the NFL. As a member of the Maryland Terrapins, Dorsey was never able to contribute much in his four seasons. Dorsey caught 18 passes for 311 yards and three touchdowns in his senior year after leading the Terrapins in receptions as a junior with 45.

With his lack of shining collegiate pedigree, Dorsey can be viewed as a project. What he lacks in productivity, he makes up for in athleticism. At 6-foot-1 3/8 and 207 pounds, Dorsey recorded a 4.47 40-time, a 38-inch vertical and a 10-foot-11 broad jump at the Terrapins’ March pro day workout for scouts. With his limited catches, he did exhibit NFL-level play-making ability, averaging 17.3 yards per reception in his final season.

Heading into training camp, Dorsey is one of 12 wide receivers currently on the Green Bay Packers‘ roster. The Packers will ultimately keep either five or six receivers. The top three spots are locked up by veterans Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Randall Cobb. The remaining nine receivers are vying for two or three spots on the roster. Dorsey’s main competition will most likely come from fellow seventh-round selection Charles Johnson. Mini camp reports have also called out rookie free agent receiver Myles White as someone to keep an eye on.

Kevin Dorsey fast facts:
Age: 23
Size: 6-foot-1, 207 lbs.
College: Maryland
Jersey: No. 16
Twitter: https://twitter.com/Kev_Dorsey
Bio: Despite poor productivity from the quarterback spot, Dorsey was the Terrapins’ No. 1 receiver in each of his last two seasons. He started all 12 games in his senior season and 10 of 12 games as a junior. He was a preseason All-ACC selection in 2012.

Chances of making the Packers roster: Fair — The Packers have legitimate openings at the fourth, fifth and (possibly) sixth receiver spots.

Practice squad eligible: Yes.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
