I think Chris Neil is a much better comparison, although not nearly the same fighting ability.
IMO Dorsett is no Chris Neil. Neil can legitimately go with heavyweights. Neil can hurt players playing dirty or playing clean. He is noticeably larger than Dorsett and hits really hard. Dorsett and Neil in a fight would not be a good match for Dorsett. Dorsett is Prust size but not as good a fighter as Prust. Being willing is one thing--being able is another.

What it comes down to is Dorsett is a gritty agitating little peckerhead with some skill and a bit of crazy--why the Avery comparison.

Neil is a very good fighter-an intimidating body checker with some skill and a lot of mean.
