On the Hoof: A smaller receiver that is lean, yet well-proportioned. He is similar in size to Georgia freshman Rantavious Wooten. Dunkley may be able to reach 185 pounds before all is said and done.
Needs Improvement: Adding size and strength will be a key for getting off man coverage and winning jump balls. Dunkley is very quick but has a tendency to dance too much which will not work at the next level.
Most Impressive: He possesses excellent ball skills and body control. Dunkley also has a beautiful, long stride that looks effortless, and he is quick enough to leave defenders corkscrewed in the ground trying to corral him.
Conclusion: His hands and change of direction will most likely get him looks as a punt returner as a freshman. He may also get a shot playing receiver early on because it is probably the easiest position to learn on the football field. If he stays focused on being great, he could become a difference maker.
