Despite some rust, Patriots WR Aaron Dobson moved well and did not seem cautious about pushing off of the injured foot. He was targeted nine times, and came up with three catches for 57 yards and a touchdown. Some of the missed connections were poor throws by Jimmy Garoppolo, others were bad routes by Dobson.
The important thing is that Dobson got on the field in a live game situation, and got off the field healthy. As long as that continues to happen, he should keep improving.
As a rookie, Dobson caught a respectable 37 passes for 519 yards and four touchdowns, but he flashed some big play ability in his 5-130-2 outing against the Steelers in early November. His FP/T (1.05) was average, but if he can beat out Brandon LaFell and Kenbrell Thompkins for a starting job, he should produce with Tom Brady throwing the ball. He only played 63% of the snaps as a rookie. The foot injury has held him back this offseason, but now that he's healthy and playing, he looks ready to make a push.
