With the 59th pick in the draft, the New England Patriots select…

Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall Thundering Herd (6-3, 210 pounds)

The Patriots make a sly move by selecting Marshall receiver Aaron Dobson, who is vastly underrated. A tall receiver with a long stride which hides his playing speed, Dobson has consistently flashed the ability to get separation on deep routes. Blessed with soft, natural hands, Dobson catches everything thrown his way and showed that he can play with the big boys when he shined in every practice at the Senior Bowl. I expect Dobson to become a solid starting receiver for the Patriots by his second season.
