Dobson has 108 receptions for 1,719 yards and 21 touchdowns through three seasons.
His projected numbers have him finishing his career in the top 10 in catches, top five in receiving yards and top three in receiving touchdowns in program history.
He noted the blemishes on his NFL evaluation and wants to build a junior season in which he had four multi-touchdown games and four TDs in his final two games.
"I need to be a more vocal leader," he said. "I've got to come out and lead the team, lead the offense and keep making big plays like last year.
"Physically I need to get stronger. I've got the hands and stuff, but I've got to get stronger.
"I'm happy to be back."

CATO, A 6-1, 180-pound rising sophomore, is the only healthy scholarship quarterback on the Marshall roster this spring.
Blake Frohnapfel, a 6-6, 229-pound redshirt freshman, is recovering from offseason surgery on his right (throwing) shoulder.
The Colonial Forge, Va., native isn't throwing in practice, instead saving that work for non-practice days (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) with trainers.
Frohnapfel had the arthroscopic procedure performed Nov. 28, two days after the conclusion of the regular season. At the time, Frohnapfel was told he could resume throwing by spring drills.
He isn't there yet, but there is a chance the QB could participate, in some degree, in the annual Green-White Game on April 28.
"Hopefully I can start throwing in the next couple of weeks," he said. "I probably won't be back to full strength until early summer.
"I'm hoping I can do a little for the spring game."
