49ers DE Demarcus Dobbs has been seeing snaps at tight end in minicamp.

Dobbs saw limited snaps after making the 49ers as an undrafted free agent last season, but was used on kickoff coverage in the playoffs. He boasts impressive athleticism for his 6-foot-6, 275-pound frame, and could be used as an extra blocker on offense.

The 49ers used rookie DE Demarcus Dobbs on kickoff coverage in the playoffs.

It's a pretty impressive feat for a defensive lineman who weighs between 275 and 282 pounds. Dobbs, an undrafted rookie out of Georgia, had two sacks in the preseason before playing a limited defensive role behind Justin Smith, Ray McDonald, and Ricky Jean-Francois during the regular season. Dobbs' athleticism could lead him toward a bigger role in 2012.
