Greg Dortch, WR, Wake Forest
With the departure of Adam Humphries, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in need of a new slot receiver, and day-three of the draft is the prime place to find that replacement. Hunter Renfrow is the obvious name of slots available in day-three, but another solid option in the ACC is Wake Forest’s Greg Dortch.
Dortch did not test at the combine because of a wrist injury, but at his pro day this week, he put on a show. Breaking the 4.5 second mark in the 40 yard dash, Dortch ran a 4.49. The 5’7 and 173 pound receiver also broke the 6.9 second mark in the 3-cone drill, showing that he has the quick twitch it takes to break away from safeties and linebackers at the next level.
Being compared to Jamison Crowder, Dortch tested better than the newest receiver of the New York Jets did when her came out in the 2015 draft. In two seasons with the Demon Deacons, Dortch totaled 1,800 yards and 17 touchdowns receiving; he also returned two punt returns for touchdowns in 2018 as well.
Needing a shifty, athletic guy to get open underneath of the towering receivers Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, Breshad Perriman, and O.J. Howard, Dortch could be a great fit in Tampa Bay and could be had at the cost of a sixth round pick.
