Maryland receiver is second pick in seventh round

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 27, 2013 – 5:21 pm

GREEN BAY–Maryland wide receiver Kevin Dorsey is the Packers’ second pick in the seventh round of the draft. Dorsey, 6-2, 210, caught 45 passes for 573 yards and three touchdowns in 2011, then fell off to 18 catches for 311 yards and four touchdowns last fall. Maryland struggled with injuries at quarterback last season.

    A little bigger than Johnson, but not quite as fast (4.48 vs 4.41), Dorsey is the second answer to all the Packers fans clamoring for Green bay to reload at the WR position. Another good developmental pick in the 7th…

    NFL.Com had nothing on his size, Maryland reports that he is 6’2″ and 210 lbs. Sounds like on his bio that he disappeared at times, as he had no catches in the Clemson game. Did average 17.3 per reception though. Would like to know what the average yard per attempt was when he was targeted.

    I do like the yardage and the touchdowns though, even though his production did fall off he still scored a bit more and had huge chunks of yardage.

    Get this last pick over with…time for a cold one.

    That’s it!! for now on, we should be allowed three 1st round picks, three 2nd round picks and three 3rd round picks! This way, no packer fan will ever complain about who we draft!!

    I love that the Pack went with some developemental WRs with good size late in the draft. I was one of those clamoring for some support for the thin WR group that we suddenly had. Rodgers has plenty of weapons for now and the future. Nice job TT!

    Apparently his school had QB issues…safe to say he won’t have that issue anymore.

    Don’t know where Randy got his info, but Johnson is bigger and faster than Dorsey. 6’3 225 lbs for Johnson. 6’2 210 for Dorsey. Johnson ran a 4.39, Dorsey a 4.48, which is still pretty darn quick. If they can stand up to the physical playof the NFL DB’s, then they could pan out. The measurables will matter only if they can do that.

    WHY did we draft WR’s??? AHHHHHHHH! We don’t need offense! AHHHHHHHH!

    Does that make you feel better Aaron?

    I like both WRs. They have time to develop their skills, but the talent appears to be there. Good size and speed with both guys.

    It’s funny how people still thing clocked speed has a factor. I think Jordy Nelson was 4.5, one who would make the tough catches down the middle but not fast enough for deep throws…HA! Forget the stats, what matters is, now they perform on the field and with whom. It wasn’t Kevin Dorsey fault his production went down due to QB problems. I bet with Rodgers his production will go through the roof compared to college! :) Great pick!

    uptil I saw the bank draft of $4914, I didnt believe that my brother was like realey bringing home money in their spare time online.. there sisters neighbour haz done this for less than ten months and just cleared the dept on there apartment and bought themselves a Renault 4. we looked here, kep2.com

    The QB injuries and poor coaching are big reasons why Dorsey didn’t have the numbers people like to see. When he was targeted, he made plays. The Terps should have taken more advantage of his skills. I think he has the potential to be a good one.
