ESPN's Todd McShay says this "gem" will soar into the NFL Draft's second round


Joshua Dobbs is a mixed bag of incredible intelligence and possibly underrated NFL quarterback ability.

Todd McShay is a believer, per SEC Country, saying Dobbs could go in the second round and projecting him as the "gem of this year's draft class when we look back on it."

That's high praise with a draft full of star running backs (potentially four first-rounders), game-changing defenders and National Champion Deshaun Watson.

Dobbs has been a late riser as the draft approaches, with Jon Gruden comparing him to Dak Prescott, questioning if he really wanted to play football and Mel Kiper projected a second- or third-round landing spot.


Dobbs threw for 7,138 yards and 53 touchdowns during his time at Tennessee, and he also ran for 2,160 yards and 32 touchdowns.
