Scout Eval: Dodson stands out to be because of his ability to move, pull and get into the second level at his size. He's very naturally strong and I like how he finishes his blocks. He's clearly very raw, but he does play at a school that spreads it out, so he has experience in pass pro as well as in the running game. His upside is tremendous. - Allen Trieu
