BIO: Junior college transfer awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Posted career totals of 103/7.5/1 as a senior. Junior numbers were 61/3.5/.5.
POSITIVES: Hard-working linebacker with a good head for the ball in run defense. Diagnoses the action, remains disciplined and does not bite on play-action passes. Fires up the field, filling gaps and displaying range in pursuit. Flashes cover skills in zone.
NEGATIVES: Not a sudden or explosive defender. Slow shedding blocks. Hesitant and not instinctive in pass defense.
ANALYSIS: Overcoming much adversity from his childhood, Dobbins found refuge in football, making it a priority in his life. An adequate backup in a 34 defense who should excel on special teams.
