Overview:

Dawkins has great size, is good in pass protection, a good pass blocker, a good run blocker, he gives his quarterback enough time to get the ball to an open receiver, or run with it, he is a tough nosed player, and a mauler. He also opens holes for his backs, gets a good push on the defensive line, he does not get pushed around that easily at the line of scrimmage, does a great job of plowing over defenders, he is very athletic, and bends his knees, showing his athleticism. He does have have great speed, he had both an Ankle injury in 2014, and a foot injury in 2013 while at Temple, and he is more than likely best suited to play Guard. With that said, I see Dawkins as a day 2 pick, with the chance of being a late 1st round pick.
