3 biggest winners from Commanders OTAs and minicamp
By Jerry Trotta
1. Jahan Dotson
What more can we say about Jahan Dotson that hasn’t been said already? The rookie receiver starred during OTAs and minicamp and was far and away Washington’s best performer on the offensive side of the ball.
Yes, Dotson will have to prove himself on Sunday’s once the season starts, but it’s highly encouraging all of the tools that drew Washington to him during the pre-draft process have been on full display. Between his route-running, soft hands, and ability to make catches in traffic, Dotson looks like a readymade pro.
We’ve all seen the videos of his catches at practice. You’d think he had glue or duct tape strapped to his gloves. It just comes easy for him. How easy? Well, Dotson’s reliability has caught the eye of Carson Wentz, who told the media the No. 16 overall pick “catches the football as natural as anyone I’ve been around.”
Wentz has admittedly yet to practice with McLaurin, but this is an eye-opening compliment for Dotson regardless, as he’s done everything possible to make fans forget about Kyle Hamilton, Chris Olave and Jameson Williams.
