During his first season, Dozier has gained the trust of his teammates and coaches, which earned him some valuable playing time. The former UNC-Charlotte 49er showed his versatility on defence and on special teams. On defence, he amassed an impressive total of 60 defensive tackles, including two sacks. The 23-year-old also scored a touchdown on a 20-yard fumble return against the Calgary Stampeders, which helped the Alouettes beat the best team in the CFL. He also collected 14 special teams tackles, good for second place on the team, as are his 74 totals tackles on the season.

Dozier (5’11”, 201 lbs.) played in stellar fashion during the two seasons he suited up for the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The 23-year-old athlete established new school records in his first year with the 49ers, recording a career-high 86 defensive tackles, all while becoming the first UNCC player to score two defensive touchdowns.
