Scouting Report - May 9, 2002: (Mike Bakas * TheInsiders.com)
Although it wasn't officially recorded at Nike in Miami, Dickson turned in an impressive shuttle time of 4.67 as he displayed a tremendous amount of balance and explosion as well as quick feet.
During position drills, Dickson began to separate himself even more from the rest of the pack. He plays with excellent leverage and his first step is about as quick as any DT at this age and size that you'll find.
Athletically, he's in another league. Afterall, we're talking about a kid that doubles as a tight end/wide receiver for the Bulls. Yes -- that's right -- a wide receiver. During 1 on 1 drills, Dickson dominated every opponent he faced, primarily with quickness and explosion. He then showed a mean streak and the ability to clog the middle when he locked up with Ely offensive lineman Andrew Bain.
Dickson is a big time prospect in my opinion, and probably a Top 10 overall prospect in Florida.
