CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Miami senior WR Phillip Dorsett "hasn't lost his world-class wheels" since returning from ACL surgery.
Dorsett was one of college football's brightest weekend stars, slapping down 201 receiving yards and two touchdowns on four catches against Arkansas State. NFL scouts have timed the 5-foot-9, 185-pounder at 4.35 seconds in the 40-yard dash. Dorsett tore his ACL last October. "He possesses true 'see-ya' speed with easy acceleration to turn on the jets and erase pursuit angles from defenders and he should be a prime candidate for the fastest 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine in February," Brugler wrote. "Dorsett lacks ideal size and strength for the next level, but he's a natural hands catcher with sudden change of direction skills as a ballcarrier who has no problem hitting the turbo button. His speed as a receiver and return man will see him drafted much higher than many are projecting right now." Sep 16 - 8:52 PM

Miami senior WR Phillip Dorsett finished with 201 receiving yards and two touchdowns on four catches in Saturday's 41-20 win over Arkansas State.

As freshman QB Brad Kaaya develops, it's imperative that Dorsett and TE Clive Walford (three catches, 57 yards, and one touchdown) play like future pros. Mission accomplished today. As for Dorsett, today's performance made him the first FBS player since 1997 to exceed 200 receiving yards on no more than four catches. NFL scouts have timed the 5-foot-9, 185-pounder at 4.35 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He's been clocked as fast as 4.29 seconds in the forty, and also posted a 10.58 second 100-meter dash in May.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline writes that Miami senior WR Phillip Dorsett "is a game breaking receiver."

"Dorsett is a game breaking receiver that’s a threat to take it the distance any time the ball is in his hands," the expert wrote. "His ability to effortlessly make the deep catch at full speed is impressive." NFL scouts timed Dorsett at 4.35 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He's been clocked as fast as 4.29 seconds in the forty, and also posted a 10.58 second 100-meter dash in May. The 5-foot-9, 185-pounder was a nice fit for QB Stephen Morris, but we want to see how he'll do with Jake Heaps behind center. Pauline currently sees Dorsett as a Round 3 prospect.

NFL Media Analyst Daniel Jeremiah notes that NFL scouts timed Miami senior WR Phillip Dorsett at 4.35 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

"NFL Scouts timed Miami WR Phillip Dorsett at 4.35. He needs a lot of polish as a route runner but he's explosive and tracks the ball easy, Jeremiah tweeted. The 5-foot-9, 185 pound Dorsett has the kind of explosion to make impact plays for the U this season. However, with QB Stephen Morris off to the NFL the Canes offense could be vertically challenged with someone new under center. Either way, Dorsett remains the U's big-play threat on the offense and on special teams this season.

Miami senior WR Phillip Dorsett has been clocked as fast as 4.29 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

He also posted a 10.58 second 100-meter dash last month. "(Dorsett) could be primed for a breakout year if he can limit his drops," according to NFL.com. Dorsett, previously one of Stephen Morris' most reliable receivers, won't be a high pick due to his diminutive 5-foot-9, 185-pound frame, but a good season could convince the NFL that he has a future as a pesky slot receiver.

Sophomore running back Duke Johnson and receiver Herb Waters were reportedly close behind. Teammates added Antonio Crawford is the fastest cornerback.
