Pats WR Aaron Dobson, reveal thyself.
This season — or maybe even this month — will define the second-rounder’s career after a pair of injury-plagued seasons. Dobson had a terrific first half in 2013 before a major foot injury derailed his rookie season and sabotaged his sophomore campaign, which ultimately ended when he popped his hamstring in Green Bay.
Quarterback Tom Brady showed spurts of trust with Dobson in the spring, so there’s reason to believe in the Marshall product who redesigned his offseason schedule with the goal of strengthening his lower body and preventing future injuries.
Julian Edelman has become a legitimate No. 1 receiver, even if tight end Rob Gronkowski is the offense’s top weapon. If Brandon LaFell builds upon his inaugural season with the Pats and Danny Amendola’s postseason momentum carries over (he restructured his contract to stay), that’s a nice trio, the story said. The story also pointed out that those WRs were also blessed with good health and that's not something you can always count on, thus the importance of Dobson to emerge.
