KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Former Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs hopes to impress scouts, coaches and executives at the Senior Bowl this week, potentially rising from a fringe prospect to a surefire quarterback pick.
On Tuesday’s Rocky Talk podcast, WMNL’s Josh Ward discusses Dobbs’ draft prospects, as well as Tennessee’s challenge in replacing the senior quarterback.
While the Vols are excited about the potential in youngsters Jarrett Guarantano and Quinten Dormandy, Dobbs led the SEC with 40 total touchdowns and spearheaded big wins over Florida, Georgia and Virginia Tech.
Can either Guarantano or Dormandy set in and fill some big shoes immediately?
Later on the Tennessee football podcast, SEC Country’s Jesse Simonton breaks down the commitment of tailback Timothy Jordan and how the rest of Tennessee’s board shakes out a week before National Signing Day. He also discusses several important in-home visits by Butch Jones this week.
Finally, they finish the pod with a chat about Tennessee’s primetime tilt against Kentucky tonight (9 p.m., ESPN).
Coach Rick Barnes and forward Admiral Schofield weigh in on Tennessee’s development this season.
