Dawkins has already worked out with the Clippers and competed in the Portsmouth Invitational.
The 6-foot-5, 215-pounder has a strong outside stroke, shooting over 42 percent from three last season with the Blue Devils. He appeared in 33 games as a senior, averaging 7.9 points.
The Chesapeake, Virginia native's best season came in 2011-12 as a junior when he averaged 8.4 points in 34 games.
After his junior season, Dawkins stepped away from basketball for a year battling depression after the death of his sister in a 2009 car accident and was redshirted.
The Sixers hold seven picks in the draft -- Nos. 3 and 10 in the first round and Nos. 32, 39, 47, 52 and 52 in the second. Dawkins is projected as a second-round pick and could be a fit for the team with any one of its second-rounders.
