You knew they would go with a QB at some point today. I like hearing that the kid is brilliant. I guess we go TE or S next?

Playing QB isn't rocket science, but if it was, we'd now be covered.

Ha! In any case, hopefully he can emerge as Ben's successor.

He's as good as anyone who followed Bradshaw. But we didn't win a SB again until Ben.

I have no problem picking a QB in mid-round. When you consider how much decent backup QB gets paid in FA market, the Steelers don't have to develop him into a franchise QB to justify the pick.

The more I learn, the more I like this pick.

Hopefully some of his intelligence will rub off on a certain receiver.

Exactly. I think a receiving TE who doesn't have chronic concussion issues might have been better. Maybe Jake Butt or Jordan Leggett, but we got Tee Martin 2.0 instead.

Nah, Ben meant to say " @joshdobbs is Landry Jones replacement...not minds replacements"

Forget the wonderlic test, some of these guys need "hooked on phonics" programs.

Everyone is making Dak Prescott comparisons. I'd say that's a bit premature...

Yup, while he has a strong arm, is athletic and an intelligent engineering grad....he wasn't the most talked about prospect at the Senior Bowl. IMO, more of the chatter was about Davis Webb from Cal or Nate Peterman. The 3rd most impressive QB at the Senior Bowl likely has a lot of work to do before he can be the #2 QB on the team.

If he does end up making it and gets on the field at some point, I can already hear the puns. He engineered a comeback ... he engineered a scoring drive ...

Well, if he can engineer TD's instead of getting sacked on 3rd downs inside the 20 and end up kicking a FG, I'm all for him and anyone else that can do it.

I like the kid, it wasn't like he had a ton of prolific talent around him at Tennessee, they were an above average SEC program. I'd like to see what this kid can do at the NFL level, with better coaching, and better talent all around him. With our receiving corps, and running backs he wouldn't be asked to do nearly as much as he was at Tennessee. I watched that kid put Tennessee on his back numerous times.

Can you see Joshua Dobbs potentially taking Landry Jones’ spot as the backup quarterback this year?

ANSWER: This year? Just stop it. Seriously. Stop it.

How many really successful dual threat QB's have there been? Not that many

Tarkenton
Cunningham
Steve Young
Mike Vick? (for a little while anyway)

the QB's listed above were great passers as well as adept at running with the ball. With faster defenders in the pros its not as easy to be a dual threat QB. If Dobbs improves on his passing, maybe he has a shot to do well.

That is why Gruden said in that QB Camp piece that he wants to see Dobbs be the best pocket passer he can be.

When dual threat QB's get pressured, they feel the panic and resort to their safe place which is running. When the slow pocket passers are in the same situation, they slide in the pocket and feel some urgency to get rid of the football. Bigger plays happen from throwing under pressure than running under pressure. I hope Dobbs develops, but it will be a couple years for sure and there is something with his motion that seems to take too long to throw. Not quite the Leftwich windup, but something slow.
