Former Pitt tight end/receiver Dorin Dickerson generated pre-draft buzz when he ripped up the 2010 NFL Combine, running a 4.4-flat forty-yard dash with a 42-inch vertical at 226 pounds. But Dickerson has made no on-field contributions since, bouncing between practice squads and having yet to record a reception.
The Buffalo Bills are going to kick his tires.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that Dickerson is scheduled to try out for the Bills. It sounds like he’s been invited to Buffalo’s rookie minicamp next week on a workout-only basis.
G.M. Buddy Nix’s Bills have been willing to take fliers on “test freak” types in the past. Former Arizona basketball player Fendi Onobun is currently on Buffalo’s roster at tight end, and the Bills used a seventh-round pick last year on Bethel defensive tackle Michael Jasper after he ran a forty time in the 5.5s at nearly 400 pounds.
Jasper has since been converted to offensive guard and is now listed at 375.
