Why hasn’t Tennessee QB Josh Dobbs been picked in the NFL draft yet?
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. —There have been six quarterbacks selected in the NFL draft through the first three rounds, but Tennessee’s Josh Dobbs is not among them.
Three Vols’ players have been selected: Derek Barnett in the first round, and Alvin Kamara and Cameron Sutton in the third round.
Some might be wondering why Dobbs hasn’t been selected in the NFL draft yet after ESPN’s Todd McShay suggested last week he could go as high as the first round.
The NFL draft resumes at noon today with rounds 4 through 7, and in addition to Dobbs, other outgoing Vols hoping to hear their name called include receiver Josh Malone, linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin, tight end Jason Croom, defensive end Corey Vereen, cornerback Malik Foreman and offensive lineman Dylan Wiesman.
Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage said last week this was a distinct possibility for the outgoing Tennessee quarterback.
“Josh Dobbs he seems to be on fire right now in terms of a lot of the buzz that’s out there,” Savage said on the Senior Bowl pre-draft teleconference last week, “but this is a week of a lot of smoke because most of the teams have their boards set, and there’s a lot more time to have conversations with other clubs and members of the media.”
Some questioned if Dobbs was a draft-worthy quarterback entering his senior season, but as the year wore on, Dobbs improved.
Things looked even better for Dobbs after he completed the Tennessee portion of his collegiate career, as he shined at the Senior Bowl, the NFL combine and in interviews with teams.
“His pro day workout (in Knoxville, March 31) was sort of the culmination of what started here in Mobile after what ended with the bowl game in Nashville with his performance against Nebraska,” said Savage, who made the call to invite Dobbs to the Senior Bowl.
“Josh came here and I felt like with his personality and his intelligence that he would win a lot of people over, and as all of you guys know, the NFL is a very small fraternity,” he said. “ If you can impress a single coach on one of these clubs, he’s going to spread the message amounts his peers across the league, and I think that’s really what has happened with Josh.”
Savage said that from a scouting standpoint, NFL scouts had their issues with Dobbs like they do with every player.
“The personnel people were somewhat critical of him during the season because of his lack of consistent accuracy, but I think once the pre-draft stuff transitioned to the coaches, every coach that Josh has been exposed to walks away being impressed with him,” Savage said. “He certainly improved some of his mechanics and throwing accuracy this spring, albeit it’s on air at the combine and at the pro day, but I felt like all along, I thought he was a third-day project for a team, that he had a lot of traits they could work with.”
Former Tennessee and Pittsburgh quarterback Nathan Peterman is also among the noteworthy quarterbacks yet to be selected in the NFL draft, along with Miami’s Brad Kaaya and Ole Miss’ Chad Kelly.
That's the saltiest article I've read in a really long time.
Vols' Jones wades back into 'five-star hearts' waters
If Tennessee football coach Butch Jones loses the "five-star hearts" battle, he's going to go down swinging. He was back at it Tuesday night.
Butch Jones, much like Jake Bentley, may in fact be a mongoloid.
He is right though. They've got a lot of three stars that sc wanted..
CNN thinks they have it bad.
Hilarious that their wrs and qb elected to come to Clemson to ride the bench over starting at UT
They did this a couple times vs. GT too which made no sense to me.
Edit: I've been had. Fake news
They are losing players and recruits left and right and now this....

Hubbs says they've heard the same rumblings. Him and his brother were at Clemson a few weeks ago. They're trying to contact him.
Yes to Mays please
And Lyn-J Dixon if we're going poaching.
New phone who dis?
5star #2 rated tackle
Defensive, offensive, or box?
No thanks. Not high on him. They can keep him
Trey Smith's face might still be intact if he had just come to Clemson.
"Smith lost his helmet and then proceeded to fall on it." - Butch Jones
Butch Jones, I can't quit you
He’s like a bad 9 year old co-ed rec soccer coach.
I have no doubt he passes out orange slices and caprisuns to the players at half time.
According to UT posters on tMB, Dormady quit the team this morning
They’re going to lose to the cocks and Butch will be let go.
I think bitch can pull out a w on the cocks
Doubtful. They’re going to lay down and the freshman QB is going to hand it to them.
Guarantanamo looks horrible. Like worse than Dormandy bad.
USC is gonna win big. 3 scores type whoopin
