Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs has another fan at ESPN in draft analyst Todd McShay. The analyst believes Dobbs will be selected relatively high in next week’s 2017 NFL Draft.

McShay and fellow draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. talked about next week’s three-day event Thursday on “Mike & Mike In The Morning” on ESPN Radio. McShay said he thinks that the former Volunteer signal-caller has a chance to be picked on the first night of the draft.

“I think Josh Dobbs from Tennessee is going to go early in the second round, if he doesn’t sneak into the first,” McShay said.

Dobbs started to impress NFL teams at the Senior Bowl in January. He has continued to do so with his workouts and meetings with teams.

On Wednesday, ESPN’s Louis Riddick said he felt like Dobbs would be a better player in the NFL than in college. Dobbs currently is listed as a third-round pick in a recent mock draft done by NFL.com’s Chad Reuter.

The ex-Tennessee quarterback finished his college career with 7,138 passing yards and 53 touchdowns. He also ran for 2,160 yards and 32 touchdowns.
