What the scouts are saying:

"Small-school college left tackle best suited to kick inside in the pros. Has the girth and enough athletic ability to compete as a guard or center and ornery football disposition desired in the trenches. A tough, gritty, road grader capable of paving the way in the run game, Dozier will require some technique refinement in pass protection, yet possesses clear starter potential with continued development." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"Well-proportioned, athletic-looking, muscular frame. Exhibits light feet, a fluid kick-slide, and is a natural bender. Quick off the snap as a run blocker, and gets off the line and into the hole swiftly when asked to trap or pull." (Derek Stephens, CBSSports.com)

"At the East-West Shrine, Dozier showed some power to open up holes in the ground game and some athleticism to be a pass-blocker in the NFL. Dozier played offensive tackle in college, but his home in the NFL will be at guard." (WalterFootball.com)
