Analysis: Michael Dickson is a punter, a really good one but at the end of the day, there is only so much film you can watch on a punter. Dickson declared early for the draft, something you do not see from special teamers–but when you are the best at something it is time to take your talents to the pros. As long as Dickson isn’t overdrafted like a Roberto Aguayo from a few years back, he will immediately step in and assume the punting duties on that team.

What the scouts say: “I don’t get excited about punters, but I love this guy. It’s not a stretch that Texas could produce the best kicker (Justin Tucker) and punter in the league at the same time.” — NFC team regional scout
