In response to Patsfansince1966's comment:
No, I don't know better.
Here's a rookie WR stats:

So posting Randy Moss's rookie numbers shows what?
That is average like you claim?
The average rookie WR performance, what people should realistically expect, is much lower.
Here are ALL the rookie WR stats from Terry Glenn's rookie season (an excellent WR year).
All Rounds: 35 catches 208 yards average
The controlled average to remove anomalous late round long shots and first round phenoms like Glenn and Moss (both of whom came freighted with much higher expectations than people should lay on Dobson)?
Rounds 2-4: 17 catches 155 yards average
That is what you can expect from rookie WRs. Especially mid-round WRs. You expect something like Amani Toomer, Joe Horn, and Mus Muhamid, all three of which would go on to fanastic careers after unspectacular rookie seasons like 25 - 407 or 2-30 or 1-12.
If you expect Randy Moss numbers you are a complete fool.
