Overview

Dobbs lacks explosion and doesn't possess prototypical size so he'll likely top-out as a reserve. Only profiles as a strongside 4-3 defensive end. Doesn't have the size to take car of the two-gap run responsibilities as a 3-4 defensive end and doesn't have the penetrating quickness of a 3-technique or the athletic ability to stand up as a 3-4 outside linebacker. However, Dobbs is a very hard-working player with good on-field awareness. Doesn't appear to have much room for additional bulk and could use some to hold up better at the point of attack. Dobbs' limitations make him a borderline seventh rounder.


Strengths

Dobbs has good size. Displays to ability to close on the quarterback. Gets off the ball well and can jolt offensive linemen on initial contact. Has enough speed to pursue from the backside. Does a good job of diagnosing and finding the football. Hard-working player.

Weaknesses

Doesn't possess great explosion off the ball when rushing the passer. Lacks the natural athleticism to consistently beat lineman and get penetration. Needs to become more consistent using his hands and getting off blocks. Can miss tackles in the backfield and in space. Pigeon-holed to one position.

Grade

2.0
