What Does Jahan Dotson Bring to the Commanders?

The Washington Commanders tried to upgrade their receiver room last offseason by signing Curtis Samuel, and they took another stab at it this year by selecting Jahan Dotson with the 16th pick in the first round of the draft.

At just 5-foot-11, 181 pounds, Dotson is a smaller wideout who has just a 50th-percentile breakout age (20.5), according to PlayerProfiler. On the positive, he rates in the 95th percentile in final-season target share (32.5%) and in the 90th percentile in college dominator rating (44.3%).
