Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall
Dobson (6-3, 210), selected No. 59 overall in the second round, is destined to play as the Patriots' X receiver, working the boundaries of the field. He's fast (clocked at a 4.42 40-yard dash officially, but as low as 4.38) and has a great leaping ability. In his four years for Marshall, he compiled 165 receptions, 2,398 yards, and 24 touchdowns. In his senior year, he did not record one drop on 92 targets (57 receptions).
He said it: “It’s an exciting time. Just to have the opportunity to play in the NFL and to play for a great team like the Patriots. It’s just a blessing from the man above. I’m just excited to hit the ground running.”
