Former Heisman finalist would pick Dobbs over Watson

Heath Shuler was the SEC Player of the Year and Heisman runner-up for Tennessee in 1993 and played in the NFL for five years with the Redskins, Saints, and Raiders.

So you would think that he would analyze the quarterback position fairly well. Shuler boldly proclaimed that he would pick Josh Dobbs over any other college quarterback right now.

"He can throw the football, and he can obviously run,” Shuler said via gridiron.com. But it’s going to be that leadership that separates him from being just a good quarterback to one of the great quarterbacks to play at the University of Tennessee."

"Look, I’d rather have him than any other quarterback playing in the SEC or in the NCAA right now. (As a dual-threat quarterback) he plays havoc with defenses right now."

I admire Dobbs' athleticism and dual-threat game, but one would have to consider a handful of other quarterbacks in the conversation as the top dog before Dobbs such as Heisman finalists Deshaun Watson and Baker Mayfield alongside other standouts including J.T. Barrett, Seth Russell, Greg Ward, and possibly even former Clemson backup and Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly.

However, to be fair, put Dobbs in Clemson's current high-octane offense with elite playmakers and he would more than likely be impressive.

Dobbs passed for 2291 yards with 15 touchdowns, five interceptions and rushed for 671 yards and 11 scores last season as the Volunteers finished ninth in the SEC in passing plays of 30 or more. For his career, Dobbs has passed for 26 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.

The Tennessee offense with Dobbs will have a chance to make waves this season as fan and media expectations are high with their #10 ranking and a first-place vote in the preseason USA Today coaches poll.
