Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JOSHUA DOBBS: Tennessee, 6033 216 4.64. Two-year starter from Alpharetta, GA. The aerospace engineering major led the Volunteers to three straight bowl wins and a 23-12 overall record. Dobbs helped himself during the Senior Bowl week of practice to show that he is at least a developmental talent with his quick release. Needs work on his consistency and ability to throw through tight spots. Accuracy, consistency, and ball placement need work. Struggles with deep accuracy. Has a tendency to throw high over the middle and into coverage. A scrambler who throws several short completions, quick outs, hitches, and slants. A good athlete with the ability to keep his feet alive. The spread formation passer has had breakdowns over his career with a natural feel in the passing game, hitting his receivers with few route adjustments and decision making. Struggles to place the ball away from defenders. Week in and week out performances have been streaky due mainly to inconsistent mechanics and technique. Question his ability to win a game by just throwing the ball and not using his legs. A raw talent who is a good leader and produces with limitations. 2016 stats: 225/ 357, 2946 yds, 63%, 27 TD, 12 INT, 831 yds rushing, 12 TD, 150.6 QB rating. Ball velocity 51 mph. OSR:5/13. Fourth/fifth round. (A- 32 5/8, H-9 1/4, SS-4.31, VJ-33).
