The Washington Commanders heard plenty of skepticism when they drafted wide receiver Jahan Dotson with the 16th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. While the upcoming season is months away, Washington is already buzzing about its talented rookie.

Dotson was always expected to be an important factor in the team’s success this year. While Terry McLaurin is the star of the passing attack, Washington needs other playmakers. Dotson frequently showed that ability in college and the front office hoped it would be on full display quickly when he made the jump to the NFL.

While Commanders’ training camp hasn’t even arrived yet and the preseason is more than a month away, it seems many in Washington are coming away with rave reviews for the 5-foot-11 wideout.

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported that Dotson generated a lot of buzz during minicamp in June.
