Josh Dobbs NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’3 216lbs
- Quick release
- Decent velocity
- Deep ball accuracy
Analysis: There was a lot of hype surrounding Josh Dobbs in the months leading up to the 2016 season. The Volunteers were supposed to challenge for an SEC crown and Dobbs was a potential Heisman Trophy finalist. Well, the season didn’t turn out as planned and Dobbs struggled at times although he turned in a decent season statistically (2,946 yards and 27 touchdowns through the air and 831 yards with 12 scores on the ground). He has the ball handling and quick release to get the ball out early when challenged by sudden pressure. Throws a tight spiral with adequate drive velocity. Eye-catching deep pass accuracy (47.7 completion percentage) with 14 touchdowns on throws 21-plus yards. Displayed good mental toughness. Can make timely exits from the pocket and win with his feet against overzealous rushers who vacate their rush lanes. Has explosive ability as a runner. Offers a team packaged-play potential in short yardage situations.
- Short to intermediate accuracy
- Thin frame
- Ball placement
Analysis: At 216 pounds, Josh Dobbs will need to add more weight onto his frame in order to stand a chance in the NFL. Below average delivery balance affects his accuracy and ball placement. Footwork is uneven and causes him to throw from unbalanced platform too often. Throwing motion causes him to push some throws. Floats the deep out allowing defenders to close out his passing windows. Decision making not where he needs it to be. Can’t always get away from poor looks once he’s made his mind up pre-snap. Threw nine interceptions on just 104 attempts beyond 10 yards this season.
Bottom Line: Josh Dobbs is not an NFL QB.
