Dobbs was highly productive at Tennessee, where he had 614 completions, for 7138 passing yards, and 53 passing touchdowns. He has good size, good speed, is a good running quarterback, very mobile, and a good option quarterback. He has good arm strength, is a good pocket passer, is a play maker, and he has a knack of making something out of nothing, especially due to his good speed. In addition, he does not stare down one receiver, he distributes the ball to various recivers, and backs, is hard to take down when running, and runs over defenders. He does throw too many interceptions, did not play in a pro style offense, needs to get use to playing under center if he is to make it at the next level, and is inconsistent, which led to him being benched. With that said, and a good Senior Bowl, I expect Dobbs to be a day 3 pick.
