That's where the "tank" comes into play. Like your own character, companions all have a specific role assigned to them. The Astro droid you get as a Knight is a tank, meaning it taunts enemies into attacking him instead of you. If you play a tank yourself, you won't be using T7 that much.
"Mob" is just a popular term in MMO's for a hostile NPC.
