    Re: No one remembers Dobson from ESPN?

    That is an awesome, circus catch. But here's a few I found. I hadn't watched any highlights, but I finally looked him up after seeing that absurd catch, and knowing he's had 0 drops:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AH3ZNz6FLAc

    Specifically there are two catches at 1:35 and 2:02 that particularly struck me. Especially the one at 202.

    I've been WAITING for a reiciever who could do this.

    Did I mention the one at 2:02. Yeah. The way he goes UP and FIGHTS for the ball! He OBVIOUSLY has good hands...I mean, it's not even debateable. He has good size. Good speed. And he can catch balls like THOSE in traffic!

    Brady is going to have a field day with this kid.

    As long as he can learn the option route system, he's going to shred defenses. Even short of that, I see him being an IMMEDIATE goal line weapon on the outside. They haven't had that since 2007.

    This guy and Brady are going to get along really well.

    I like both receivers we drafted. This was a deep draft for receivers. I especially like Josh Boyce in the 4th, I think he will end up being a steal. Also I know we're crowded at slot receiver but don't count out TJ Moe, he may end up on the practice squad.

    The Patirots track record with rookie wideouts has been horrible........it is imperative Brady make sure these guys are successful regardless of their ability to constantly be on the same page as him.

    With the Patriot offesne being a read, react and adjust on the fly ....it makes it difficult for young guys to come in.....we all saw what happened to Chad Johnson.

    Re: No one remembers Dobson from ESPN?

    That one handed catch in the endzone was so far beyond ridiculous I don't even know what to say about it.  Looking at clips he has great hands, good speed, can create seperation and does a good job of positioning his body to keep the secondary away from the ball.  There was a lot of talk about how small his hands are, but considering his catching ability I would say that's a non issue.  The biggest thing will be getting on the same page as Brady and being able to read defenses the same way Brady is.  That has been the biggest downfall of every rookie receiver since Brady took over.  Hear he's very intelligent and the scouts and BB were really impressed was how he broke down film.

    Is it to early to call Randy II?    Give him #84 (Branch won't be back anyway).

    Seriously the sickest catch I've seen in the last decade at least. Hope this makes people feel fuzzy.

    At the end of the day it's a draft ... we'll argue about it in a few years ... right now ... it was a decent draft. 

     



    yup. 3rd wr on my pats list. hope hes teh real deal and takes 2 dbs wiht him everywhere he goes.

     



    The only bad thing is that, though he can take two DBs with him downfield, he won't beat them down field like Randy could.

    I picked him in my "pick a wr every round" thread. The guy looks great and I do not understand how anyone has an issue with this pick. He has size, decent speed, can catch anything, and is smart from what I hear. He is EXACTLY what we have been looking for. 

    Boyce looks very good as well. I love this draft so far.

    One handed catches at full extension are OK, but I do not ever think I have seen a one handed BACKHAND catch! But ... that isn't really what makes a good receiver. In the highlights the ones that were more impressive in terms of everyday duties are the ones where he goes up with the DB hanging on his arms and just MAKES the catch.

    As of for young guys learning ... haven't had that many chances. But with a complete make-over of the WRs everyone will be starting from scratch except Edelman. And the young guys may have a better chance because they aren't trying to unlearn their old systems and kick their bad habits.

    Dobson, Boyce, Amendola, Edelman and Moe are a really good group of young receivers to be bringing to camp... only the negative Nancies could be sad.

    I agree with this.  Brady must be licking his chops   Now if we can keep injurys to a minimum.

    Didnt this guy run a consistent 4.40 injured WITH turf toe? And from what Ive read he has hit 4.35 times consistently.......which is only .10 off Randy Moss's 4.25 timed dash at his fastest. Not exactly a slow runner if you ask me.

    I know J. Boyce ran a 4.38 with a broken bone in his foot. It was reported Dobson ran a 4.33 a couple of years ago.  Boyce scored 23 on Wonderlic and Dobson is considered intelligent,  but I have not seen don't have wonderlic. They both seem focused on football.

    In total talent, sure, that's about where I ranked him with my draft gang. As far as what NE needs? I have him Justin Hunter neck and neck at 1a and 1b. NE needed WR who could play in the deep end. There were only really a couple guys fitting that bill. Adding a vanilla 5'10" guy who runs good routes, or another midget slot guy who is a slightly better prospect does not help the team at all. In fact, even they had a crack at Keenan Allen for instance ... all that would do is replicate the slot disaster log jam they've already had. 

     

    Dobson, as a prospect, was about as good as NE was going to do this draft at addressing a huge need that has been there for seasons, without mortgaging the future to trade up into the top 10 to get some monster DT or something. 



    Dobson does not look like a project to me

    Re: No one remembers Dobson from ESPN?

    i think Dobson can develop into something special. The one kid I am. Really fond of is TJ Moe. I think he will surprise some, and I could see him supplanting Jones on our roster. 

    i am curious as to how many wr's the pats keep, slater takes up a spot every year, so, most likely 5 other positions open less slater...amendola, Dobson, Edelman, Boyce, moe...that is a nice group if they can develop some chemistry with Brady. Then add our te's in and it gets real scary. Can't forget Vereen, Ridley and the newly acquired guy from Tampa...that is the making of a versatile and highly productive i offense on paper.
