6 reasons Dobbs is the draft's best sleeper QB pick

More Dobbs love.

Quote:

1. Among QBs likely to be picked, he’s probably the best all-around athlete.

2. He might be the smartest player in the whole draft, as you’ve heard a million times.

3. He was great at avoiding INTs ... in 2015

4. Speaking of 2016, consider the context of Tennessee’s season.

5. Overall, Dobbs was clutch as a senior.

6. Bama was only part of it. He faced much tougher schedules than most QBs do.

I hope Dobbs goes high and gets paid, but he's gonna make his money if he can deliver at the next level. Regardless, he's got a decent back up plan.

Even if he turns out right on Dobbs, that's like....1 thing he's gotten right.

Being drafted early and being successful are 2 different things. Teams reach on QBs every single year. Im still in the camp that says Dobbs wont be able to make the throws he needs to be able to make. This is the same guy that couldnt consistently throw an accurate screen pass and every time he dropped back you held your breath and hoped he just took off running.

Could he get better? Yes, he got better every year at UT, but I have still seen nothing that leads me to believe he has an NFL arm as far as accuracy.

He had times where he looked amazing and other times he just left you scratching your head. I think he'll get a chance and go pretty early. He will easily pick up the play book and could most likely be a career back-up because of it. Reading the defense at that speed will cause problems and cost him a starting job IMO. Throws that are a little off target in the NFL can be disastrous.

Definitely rooting for Dobbs in the NFL.

IMO how a QB pans out in the NFL often has more to do with the situation he is put in and the coaches he's surrounded by. I don't think Tom Brady would've been nearly as good as he became if he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns instead of the New England Patriots.

I'm just hoping Dobbs gets into the right situation where he has all the tools to succeed. I'd rather see him as a career backup in a good situation than starting in a terrible situation where he's set up to fail. And if things fall into place just right, maybe he's a backup for a few years, before finding himself as a starter in a great situation.

Rooting for Dobbs wherever he may go. I think if he goes somewhere that allows him to take a back seat for 2 or 3 years he could be a very solid starter in the NFL. Here's to hoping he doesn't go to cleveland ��

Dodds always represented UT in the best way possible as a student athlete. It's good to see a young man like JD getting bank whether its 2nd, 3rd, or 4th. In light of his well documented intelligence, he'll put that money to work such that it pays life long dividends even if he doesn't turn out to be an NFL starter. He makes it very easy to pull for him to have success!

Things really drop in the second round, where the average contract was worth about $4.8 million over four years ($1.2 million per year), according to Spotrac.com, but with only half of that guaranteed. The value of third-round contracts drops to $3.1 million, but takes an even bigger hit in guaranteed value, with the average contract worth just $682,000 in guaranteed money.

Once a player falls past the third round, most draft picks will sign a 4-year deal in the $2.3-2.4 million range. The only major difference late in the draft is the signing bonus, ranging from $300,000-500,000 in the fourth round to slightly more than $50,000 in the seventh round.

I'm just kind of upset because all I heard for 3 1/4 years was that he was going to be a rocket scientist after college.
