Josh Dobbs had an impressive career at Tennessee, but can he make it in the NFL?
The Vols quarterback finished his career with a 23-12 record, while passing for 7,138 yards and 53 touchdowns. He also collected 2,798 career yards and 32 scores on the ground during his time in Knoxville.
Nobody questions the athleticism or character of Dobbs, who recently visited Smoky Mountain evacuees in Gatlinburg. It’s the right arm of the Tennessee signal-caller that will have NFL general managers and coaches questioning whether to select the quarterback in April’s NFL draft.
Dobbs threw for 2,946 yards, 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2016, and completed 63 percent of his passes — good for No. 26 in the nation.
One draft analyst, Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller, said on Sunday that he would not give Dobbs a “draftable grade” as it stands right now.

Dobbs will have the Senior Bowl in late January to improve upon his draft stock. He will be performing there in front of NFL personnel in Mobile, Ala.
