Overview:

Dieter had a nice career between Alabama, and Bowling Green, where he combined to bring in 154 passes, for 1875 receiving yards, and 16 receiving touchdowns. He has good size, he has good hands, he is also a good pass catcher, and he has good speed. He also tends to beat his man easily, he seems to always be wide open, he is also sure handed, and he is a good blocking receiver. The only issue for some would be that he had most of his production while at Bowling Green, while he was not a big part of the Alabama offense in 2016, but I do not see this as a reason to not draft him. With that said, I think Dieter is a early day 3 pick, thanks to an impressive East-West Shrine game, and the fact that receivers are always in high demand, plus he has the skills, and production you like to see, no matter what conference you played in.
