Draft Rewind 2013 – Aaron Dobson – New England Patriots

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about AARON DOBSON: Marshall, 6026 210 4.55. Three-year starter. Is a splash play waiting to happen. Has made several circus type catches over his career because he’s had to. He has the speed to run past coverage but the quarterback has had a tough time getting him the ball deep. Usually defended with a big cushion which gives him room to work on bubble screens, hitches, and quick outs. Plays in a spread offense where he usually lines up as an ‘X’ – the split end position. Athletic after catch, good speed, and production with the ball in his hands. Has the ability to burst and break tackles when he splits defenders. Good ball reactions. He can see and adjust to the ball in flight. Good body control to make the adventurous catch. Good leaping ability and timing. Top end vertical speed as the fastest player on the team. A willing blocker with effort, aggressiveness, and strength. He is a receiver who can get open on his own. Has reliable and quick hands. A big bodied hand catcher who attacks the ball. Athletic with very good ball skills and body control. Needs work on press escape. Caught 165 passes in his career. Upgrades a stop gap starter or a career backup. 2012 stats: 57-679, 11.9 ypr, 3 TD. Medical exclusion at Combine – hamstrings. Third/fourth round. (A-33, H-9, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
