The Indianapolis Colts have had an incredible off-season ahead of the new NFL year.

The Colts have become genuine Super Bowl contenders and favorites for the crown after managing to add wide receiver Andre Johnson and running back Frank Gore to what was an already explosive offense.

Then the draft came around, and Indy went ahead and shocked the National Football League by bringing in another wide receiver, Phillip Dorsett from Miami.

It turns out that the first round receiver is actually really good and a player and the Colts players and coaches are just realizing this, judging by their quotes given to Zac Keeper of the Indianapolis Star.

"When I first saw him on tape, I was like, 'No, he's not that fast,'" Adams said. "I honestly said that." Then he saw Phillip Dorsett run through a drill at practice. Then he changed his mind. "When I saw him open up, I said, '(Expletive)!' "

Dorsett ran a sub 4.3 40-yard dash during the NFL scouting combine earlier in the year when he was trying to impress and the former Hurricane did exactly that.

Dorsett does seem to be a failsafe for T.Y Hilton, if Andrew Luck's number one receiver ends up leaving Indy in free agency. Both Hilton and Dorsett are 5-9, 180-pounders who hail from South Florida that can run like the wind.

Hilton has earned his reputation as one of the league's top wideouts. He's a Pro Bowler with more receiving yards (3,289) in his first three seasons than any player in Colts history.

If Dorsett can get anywhere near close to the level of that then the Colts will be incredibly happy with the gamble they took on the speedy wideout out of Miami.
