Dobbs, who was the fourth-round selection of the Steelers in the NFL draft earlier this year out of Tennessee, is working to earn a spot on the Pittsburgh quarterback depth chart behind long-time starter Ben Roethlisberger.
Dobbs earned praise earlier in the offseason, and appears to be in position to earn the No. 2 role if he’s able to outduel former Oklahoma QB Landry Jones.
