Inside The Bills

Dobson known for tough catches

Posted by Chris Brown on January 24, 2013 – 9:08 am

Marshall WR Aaron Dobson, who we profile on the home page of Buffalobills.com this morning, made more than his share of difficult catches during his college career. Perhaps the most popular is his one-handed backhanded grab against East Carolina in 2011.

It was just a 13-yard touchdown reception, but the degree of difficulty was pretty significant considering his back is to the ball.

Watching some of his route running he has a somewhat unconventional style. I’m not saying he’s Stevie Johnson, but he’s a bit unorthodox at times like Stevie. He’s certainly an interesting prospect that’s likely to be a mid-second round pick according to most draft prognosticators.

A sleeper WR at Senior Bowl

Posted by Chris Brown on January 21, 2013 – 12:50 pm

There are always players that surprise during the week of the Senior Bowl in the practice setting. ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper believes there’s one at the wide receiver position in Mobile this week.

Appearing on a national conference call, Kiper gave his sleeper receiver.

“A guy to watch out for is Aaron Dobson from Marshall. He’s a kid that could be a lot like Brian Quick was last year from Appalachian State,” Kiper said. “Dobson is going to have a big Senior Bowl. He has size and didn’t have a QB that could get him the ball on a consistent basis. He’s very athletic. When he’s had the opportunity to go up and make a play he’s made it. He’s very athletic. He could be in the late first round discussion or certainly in the early to mid-second round discussion as a guy that nobody is talking about that could emerge.”
