Bleacher Report's Matt Miller said NFL teams could view Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch as "a potential Tyreek Hill piece."
Tyreek Hill is the typical comparison for the small, explosive receivers and Dortch (5'9/170) certainly fits the mold. Matt Miller is not comparing Dortch to Hill straight up as players (neither are we), but Dortch can play the Tyreek role in Kansas City, as Dortch averaged 10.8 yards per target as a receiver and returned kicks for Wake Forest. The results of Dortch's 40-yard dash and broad jump will play a big part of his evaluation, but he's expected to test well in both. Thu, Dec 27, 2018 01:58:00 PM

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Dortch missed the Birmingham Bowl against Memphis because of a finger injury, and he finished his redshirt sophomore season with 89 catches for 1,078 yards and eight touchdowns. There are going to be concerns about his size (listed at 5'9/170), and he's going to need to test well at the combine if he's going to be among the top wideouts drafted. He isn't on many analysts' top 100 lists, but his production will certainly have him on radars. He has a chance to be a Day 2 pick, but it wouldn't be a huge surprise if he lasted into Day 3; albeit not long into it.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch (Finger) will not play in the Birmingham Bowl against Memphis.

A huge loss for the Demon Deacons. Dortch injured the finger in the victory over Duke to close out the season, and while it wasn't deemed serious at the time, it's going to be serious enough for the star wideout to not play. He finished his regular season with 89 catches for 1,078 yards and 8 touchdowns. As a redshirt sophomore he's eligible to leave for the NFL Draft, and it's entirely possible he's played his last game in a Wake Forest uniform.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch (finger) has not been practicing in advance of the team's Birmingham Bowl date with Memphis.

Dortch (5'9/170) injured his finger in a blowout win over Duke to close out the regular season. The Winston-Salem Journal's Conor O'Neill passes along that the injury was "more serious than initially thought." While the redshirt sophomore does have a few more days in which to get right -- the Birmingham Bowl will kick off on Saturday, Dec. 22 -- he should be considered questionable to play upcoming. It would be a major loss if he can't play in the contest, as Dortch is as reliable as they come. For the 2018 regular season he posted an 89-1078-8 receiving line.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch caught 10 passes for 124 yards with a score in a 59-7 victory over Duke on Saturday.

Dortch (5'9/170) turned in his seventh game with 90-or-more yards on the year, finally pushing his yardage total over 1000 on the season. His touchdown was from 15 yards out in the first quarter. Dortch will wrap up the regular season with 89 receptions, 1,078 yards, and eight touchdowns. At 6-6, the Deacons are bowl-eligible, giving Dortch an opportunity to shine in a national light. A redshirt sophomore, Dortch could declare for the NFL draft but may decide to return for another year in an attempt to build on two impressive seasons and alleviate any concerns with his diminutive stature.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch left Saturday's game against Pitt in the fourth quarter due to a possible leg injury.

Dortch was limping noticeably with what appears to be a left leg injury. He has been dinged up several times during Saturday's contest. With the game winding down and Pitt firmly in control, the redshirt sophomore doesn't figure to return to action in this one. We will update Dortch's status over the coming days, as information warrants.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch caught six passes for 75 yards with a score in a 27-23 victory over NC State on Thursday.

Dortch continues to rack up the catches, and he's now up to 75 catches on the year. It was a relatively quiet game for the star wideout for the majority of the game, however, but he was able to find the end zone for the seventh time on a 22-yard strike from Jamie Newman. Dortch has nowhere near prototypical size, but he certainly makes the most of his 5-foot-9, 170-pound frame. A contest with Pittsburgh comes next Saturday for the 5-5 Demon Deacons.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch hauled in nine receptions for 95 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 41-24 loss to Syracuse.

Dortch, one of college football's most underrated players, continues to do outstanding work on a lowly Wake Forest team. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound wideout was a focus of Syracuse's, but they couldn't prevent him from getting his nine touches. Dortch's eight-yard TD pulled Wake within 35-24 with 3:38 left in the third quarter. Unfortunately, the Orange tightened up from there and Wake was unable to score again. The 4-5 Demon Deacons will need to win two of the remaining games against NC State, Pitt and Duke to go bowling.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch posted a 118.8 passer rating when targeted in Saturday's 56-35 win over Louisville.

Dortch turned in another dominant performance this week, catching 8-of-9 targets for 135 yards. 61 of those yards came after the catch and five of his receptions went for first downs. He also forced three missed tackles on the day. When Dortch is healthy he's one of the best receivers in the country.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch brought in eight receptions for 135 yards in a 56-35 win over Louisville on Saturday.

Dortch didn't score, but that's the only thing he didn't do. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound wideout didn't appear to have any limitations with his ankle, and he consistently was finding open spots in the Louisville secondary. When Dortch is healthy, there aren't many better receivers in the country. He'll likely have another big game next Saturday against Syracuse.

Wake Forest HC Dave Clawson said that redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch (ankle) will be available in full against Louisville on Saturday.

Dortch (5'9/170) has been nursing an ankle injury initially sustained against Clemson on Oct. 6. He had a bye after that game and did manage to play in Saturday's loss to Florida State, managing four catches for 24 yards in that defeat. For the campaign as a whole, the redshirt sophomore has put together a 52-616-5 receiving line in seven games.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch (ankle) went through "normal warmups" ahead of Saturday's game against Florida State.

Dortch, who injured his ankle during Wake Forest's October 6 loss to Clemson, did not participate in practice in the days that followed since it was a bye week. The redshirt sophomore was limited in practice this week, so how much he'll be able to do against Florida State remains to be seen. If Dortch is a full go he has the talent to be a factor both in the passing game and on special teams, as he's one of the nation's leaders in yards per punt return.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch will not practice this week as he recovers from his sprained ankle.

Dortch suffered the sprained ankle in the 63-3 blowout loss to Clemson, and he wasn't able to return. Wake Forest doesn't have a game this week, but it sounds like he'd be questionable -- at best -- if the Demon Deacons weren't on bye. Keep an eye on his status for their game on October 20 against Florida State.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch will not return to Saturday's game against Clemson after suffering a sprained ankle.

Dortch is a major contributor for the Demon Deacons both on offense and in the return game. The question now is whether or not the sprained ankle will sideline the redshirt sophomore beyond Saturday's game. Dortch left with 76 all-purpose yards, the first game this season in which he hasn't accounted for at least 100 all-purpose yards.

Wake Forest redshirt sophomore WR Greg Dortch had 156 of his 163 receiving yards against Rice from the slot.

That was the most yardage of any receiver from the slot in Week 5. He had a monster game against the Owls, picking up four touchdowns on his 11 receptions as well. When Dortch has been healthy, there haven't been many wideouts better than him. He doesn't have elite size (5'9/170) but his nose for the end zone and ability to get open is very impressive. Scouts are certainly taking notice.
