Jahan Dotson Talks Versatility, NFL Draft Hopes On ‘Good Morning Football’

Former Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson joined Good Morning Football on Wednesday for an interview about his prospects ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft.

After being greeted by a chorus of “We Are” chants from the NFL Network show’s hosts, Dotson spoke about how he felt prepared for the draft.

“I feel I showed all my traits where I can be a No. 1 wide receiver wherever I go,” he said. “It’s been a short three months, but I’ve enjoyed every part of it.”

Dotson also had the chance to speak on his versatility on the field, noting that he believes it can boost him with any team.

“It’s helped me in college,” he said. “Growing into the wide receiver position, it’s been fun. I like to play everywhere on the field, inside and out.”

NFL Draft experts have consistently suggested Dotson might hear his named called in the first or second round of this month’s draft. A good number of analysts have suggested Green Bay as a potentially fitting suitor for Dotson’s talents.

The chance to play for the Packers surely excited Dotson, who said he would look forward to the Wisconsin climate and the chance to play with Aaron Rodgers.

“That would be a dream come true,” he said. “Aaron Rodgers has always been my favorite quarterback growing up.”

When given the chance to speak to NFL teams about his potential, Dotson didn’t mince words.

“I feel like I’m WR1,” he said. “I can make plays on the field at any time possible. I did that for my team at Penn State, my guys can vouch for me there.”
