The NFL Combine is one of the best hype machines that the league has ever created. It can be a make or break moment for players chasing their dream and all eyes are upon them. Former Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson ran a 4.41 40-yard dash in a loaded field of receivers. After review, an additional .02 was added to his time and his 4.43 time tied him at 16th .
As Penn State fans can attest, it's Dotson's route running and hands that made him one of the greatest Nittany Lions receivers of all-time. In that part of the combine, No. 5 did not disappoint.
Jahan Dotson just killed that gauntlet drill.— Jacob Infante (@jacobinfante24) March 3, 2022
He has such good hands, and he's insanely coordinated. No surprise he played as well as he did just now. #NFLCombine
Staying with my Emmanuel Sanders comp for Jahan Dotson. Similar build, electric route runners, and easily plucks the ball out of the air. A high-end WR2 on the next level. He had a very solid workout tonight.— Jordan Reid (@Jordan_Reid) March 4, 2022
Dotson will be an asset to any team, but with a late first round projection, he could be a missing piece on a playoff team with his skill set.

Oh, and by the way, they know he has good hands.
Daniel Jeremiah says he expects Jahan Dotson to run in the 4.3's during the #NFLCombine next week.— Matt Lombardo (@MattLombardoNFL) February 25, 2022
"I think he has the best hands in the draft. He attacks the football. Has outstanding ability to adjust, can catch back-hip, above the rim, he can do it all." #PennState
If you're reading this, you already know.
Another name that we expect to show out in Indy next week: Penn States Jahan Dotson. Elite hands and route running- dude makes plays and projects nicely as a Jarvis Landry-esque slot target in the NFL. pic.twitter.com/4G7Cp5rTTk— uSTADIUM (@uSTADIUM) February 24, 2022
Please let (insert your favorite NFL team) draft Jahan Dotson.
