Scout.com Take:


A bit of a different breed from a speed and agility perspective. He's one of those guys who seems almost impossible to bring down as he ducks and dodges tackles and at times makes defenders look silly as they end up just grasping at the air where Dobbins used to be. Versatile in the fact that you can line him up in the backfield or split him out wide. Also has the speed to get to the edge on sweep plays. Also a dangerous threat as a return weapon. -GP
