Aaron Dobson excels at Marshall pro day

Marshall hosted 22 teams on March 13 for the school’s pro day. Wide receiver coaches from the Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, New York Giants, Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles were among those in attendance. A total of seven players worked out, running the 40-yard dash inside on a rubber track while doing jumps outdoors.

Aaron Dobson, WR (6-3, 211) β€” Despite a relatively quiet season for the Thundering Herd, Dobson impressed with the spotlight on during Marshall’s pro day. Dobson posted a 4.42 and 4.44 for the 40-yard dash to go along with a 4.29 in the short shuttle ran the three-cone drill in 7.2 seconds. He also put up the bar 16 times in the strength drill. An injury kept the wideout out of a game and a half last season, and the team’s desire to get playing time for some of the younger players led to Dobson’s decreased productivity. Dobson looked great catching the ball during drills. The wide receiver is an excellent athlete who is also a strong basketball player.
