The 24 year old former undrafted free agent is fresh off a season for the Colts in which he had 13 receptions for 173 receiving yards (13.3 ypr. avg.) and 2 touchdown receptions during 17 games (1 start). At times, he provided the Colts with a big play deep threat—utilizing his impressive speed downfield, but will need greater consistency weekly.
Where he made his biggest mark was arguably on special teams though, as he was an NFL Second-Team All-Pro in 2021 as a special teams gunner:

Per PFF (subscription), Dulin had their fourth highest special teams grade in the league last year with a +90.8 overall grade.
The Colts will hope that Dulin continues to develop as a wide receiver a little lower on their depth chart—as his speed could be a real asset for veteran starter Matt Ryan and Indianapolis’ revamped air attack situationally and in certain sub-packages.
However, by excelling at special teams, he continues to add a lot of value to the Colts with his current roster spot—as a dual-phase contributor.
