CHICAGO (WISH) — Despite a glaring need for defense, history will repeat itself on 56th Street, as Phillip Dorsett joins Reggie Wayne as the late first round draft pick.
The Colts say the 5-10 flyer, cut from the T.Y. Hilton mold, has the potential to be special.
“He is tough and he is durable,” said Coach Chuck Pagano. “But the biggest thing is, we keep going back to horseshoe guy. He had the rare trait in the speed, but he’s a great football player that loves the game, and he loved this place.”
“No matter what the prognosticators are saying or the mocks or anything like that,” added general manager Ryan Grigson, “when you got 4.25 on grass and it shows up on the film, someone’s going to take a stab at him, especially when he has natural receiving skills on top of it.”
Grigson added that he’s got eight more draft picks to help the defense.
