On the Hoof: Dunbar is a long, gangly receiver with long arms and legs and is built kind of like a young thoroughbred. He is thin and lanky with a lot of development left to do. He will never be a muscled-out receiver but does have a chance to grow into a prospect with wiry strength.
Needs Improvement: There are a lot of things about Dunbar’s game that are very raw. He is still learning how to run properly, his breaks can be high at times and his route-running is a little bit unpolished.
Most Impressive: Dunbar is a definitive high-ceiling prospect. He has very good natural speed. His length allows him to make catches in traffic and to snatch the ball away from defensive backs that are almost always going to be smaller than him. Dunbar is best on vertical patterns when he isn’t asked to move defensive backs with his routes, and he can just use his raw athletic ability. He is also a serious red zone threat because of his jump-ball capabilities.
Conclusion: Dunbar may not be an early starter because he has a lot of polish still to be added to his game, but when he starts putting all of his tools together he has a chance to be one of the top wide receivers in the 2010 class. He will get faster, he will get stronger and he will get more fluid as a route-runner. When you add those inevitable improvements to what he already possesses, Dunbar could be scary.
