WAS: Rookie WR Jahan Dotson 'electric' in practices
Commanders.com's Zach Selby reports rookie WR Jahan Dotson has been "electric" in offseason practices.
Dotson, the team's 16th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, has drawn universal praise from Washington coaches and teammates this offseason, showing off "the traits that enticed Washington to draft him -- specifically his route-running and hands," Selby said. "He's awesome," Carson Wentz said. "He's a quiet kid, young kid, but he's a hard worker. He's smart, he's instinctual. He catches the football as natural as anybody I've been around, just how natural he plucks it out of the air." Dotson was highly productive in his final two years at Penn State, producing a 38 percent yardage share and 47 percent touchdown share in 2020 and a 36 percent yardage share and 50 percent touchdown share in 2021. Dotson is in line to start opposite Terry McLaurin and could serve as Wentz's No. 2 target with Logan Thomas still recovering from a major 2021 knee injury. Like McLaurin, Dotson is known to play much bigger than he is (5'11" and 177 pounds).
