5. Josh Dobbs will have a 3,000-yard passing season
Dobbs is currently ranked ninth all-time in passing yards in Tennessee history. Last season, he threw for 2,291 yards on 205-of-344 with 15 touchdown passes and only five interceptions. Even though the Vols have stressed the importance of a running game, the passing game needs to be elevated in order to have greater success.
Dobbs has bulked up over the offseason. He continued his training with quarterback guru, Quincy Avery, andd has been more consistent in his throws during fall camp. The ball seems to have more velocity than ever on his throws. He has numerous weapons to throw to. No matter how you dissect it, Dobbs has all the potential to have his best passing season yet. NFL scouts already like Dobbs, but if he can finally put together a solid passing attack along with his running ability and intelligence, then NASA will have to wait as teams will come knocking on his door. Josh Dobbs will throw for 3,000 yards and surpass the likes of Jeff Francis, Andy Kelly, and Tee Martin on Tennessee’s list of all-time passing leaders.
