Ravens Work Out Dorin Dickerson

According to Aaron Wilson over at SB Nation's associate, National Football Post, the Baltimore Ravens worked out Pittsburgh tight end Dorin Dickerson yesterday. Dickerson is projected to be a combination of H-back and tight end, although he is on the light side for the proto-typical build for the position (6'2", 226 lbs.). At the same time, his Combine numbers were off the chart with blazing speed, great jumping skills and his strength is obviously not hampered by his size, as he put up 24 repetitions of the 225 pound bench press. The Ravens could probably add bulk to his size but even at this weight, he could pose difficult match-up problems for defenses when lined up at the TE position or slotted out at wide receiver.

The team also worked out his Panther TE partner, Nate Byham, who was the All-Big East Conference selection two years ago, but took a back seat to Dickerson this past season. However, Byham is built to be a great blocking tight end (6'4", 268 lbs.) and might make a good Special Teams player and come in on two-TE sets for short yardage or goal line situations.

Dickerson also worked out for the Steelers, but since he is considered a "local prospect" it does not count as an "official" pre-draft visit.
