Dobson was one of the highest ranked Wide Receiver prospects, and the Patriots now get their guy to replace Brandon Lloyd
He is a bigger receiver to maybe finally give Tom Brady someone to throw the ball up to on the outside. Dobson is 6-3 and from Marshall. Remind you of anyone? (Randy Moss was 6-4 out of Marshall). He is also known for having great hands.
Mike Mayock did say that he thought Dobson was more of a project that had to be developed, which might not be a great sounding fit for a New England team that needs to win now.
He will likely be thrust into a starting role with not much competition at wide receiver right now on the Patriots roster.
