.New England Patriots wide receiver Aaron Dobson is expected to be the starter opposite of Julian Edelman this season, however, his foot injury has opened the door for Kenbrell Thompkins to make it a competition in training camp..
Thompkins has had an excellent offseason, while Dobson remain sidelined recovering from a lingering foot injury from the 2013 season..
"He's [Thompkins] built some nice momentum in spring camps, and Dobson now has to try to do the same in training camp," via CBS Sports..
"Among the many competitions on the roster, that should be a fun one to watch. Dobson was drafted in the second round last year for a reason; they are expecting big things from him.".Credit: Yarbarker

Thompkins dropped a lot due to double clutching or letting them hit his body. Dobson's drops seemed to be more awareness issues or body positioning.All correctable stuff.There is a line in Jerry Rice's wikipedia page about him struggling and dropping passes his rookie season.
