Thanks, The guy really can make tough catches and Lloyd seems like a great comparison from what I've seen. I would argue that he brings more to the table than a guy like Obomanu simply for his size he was 6'3 210lbs at the combine, and has the ability to make tough catches. Obo was neither big or really adept at going up and pulling in tough catches. I guess I rate him much higher than you as I think if he runs well at his pro day like 4.45 he will dart up the draft boards and be in the conversation with guys like Hunter, Williams, and Wheaton but will probably be a 3rd round pick.
He's some snapshots from some other scouting services about this guy
Presents a tall, long build prototypical of outside vertical receivers. Runs a bit high but has a fair three-step game off the line. Ankle flexion to create separation on comeback patterns. Possesses strong hands, length, and good concentration to snatch high and wide passes. Tracks the ball well over his shoulder and makes acrobatic one-handed catches. Can make a catch with a defender draped on him. Difficult for smaller cornerbacks to drag him down, as he will churn through contact to get the extra yardage. Able to free himself off press coverage using his hands.http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/aar ... d=2539256/
Aaron Dobson has quietly had a great career at Marshall, despite not having an NFL-quality arm throwing to him. With an arm that can deliver the ball down the field on a consistent basis, Dobson’s production would have been greatly improved.He has improved every year in college and I expect his best football to be played in the NFL. If he is able to refine his technique a bit, he will quickly become a fixture on highlight shows.A tall receiver that can get over the top of cornerbacks is never over-looked on draft day and I’d imagine that despite a probable 4.5 time in the forty yard dash, we’ll hear Dobson’s name called in the first 100 picks of the 2013 NFL Draft.http://www.nepatriotsdraft.com/2012/12/ ... eport.html
Dobson is a speed burner who was clocked with a 4.33-second 40-yard dash during the preseason in 2009, according to the school. After seeing limited action as a freshman, he led the team with 44 catches for 689 yards and five touchdowns as a sophomore.
Savvy route-runner whose body control and reliable hands made him a standout at the Senior Bowl. Good attention to detail. He sets up defensive backs well, selling his routes to push defensive backs deep even on running plays and showing off strength and determination as a downfield blocker. He also consistently worked his way back to the quarterback. Can leap high, contort his body and haul in difficult passes in deep coverage. Very good hand-eye coordination and shows the ability to make the difficult reception look easy. Is consistently able to make the reception despite defenders in close proximity. Voted team captain in 2012. COMPARES TO: Sidney Rice, WR, Seattle Seahawkshttp://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/play ... on-dobson/
Possesses strong mitts that swallow the ball. Will let the ball into his body on occasion with underneath throws. Appears more natural and comfortable catching the ball above his shoulders. Has a basketball background and it shows on tape with his body control, leaping and ability to adjust to throws outside of his frame. Uses his frame well to shield defenders with contested throws in traffic. Tracks the deep ball naturally and can extend arms and use soft hands to cradle the ball. Can make acrobatic one handed catchhttp://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draft/player/_/id/29968
