Tennessee held its pro day on Friday, and it was the school's unheralded quarterback who stole the show.
Joshua Dobbs (6-3 1/4, 218), who stood on all of his numbers from the combine, was his own quarterback guru, scripting his own plays for the workout portion of the pro day. He started with four go-routes, and dropped each into the bucket. He ended with four go-routes and threw perfect passes about 50 yards down the field.
In all, he had just one poor throw with a couple of drops. It was a performance that left Steelers coach Mike Tomlin asking, "Who is this guy?" He really opened some eyes.
Tomlin wasn't the only NFL dignitary in attendance. Falcons head coach Dan Quinn was there as well, and so were about 15 coordinators and position coaches. In all, 15 players worked out indoors on FieldTurf.
» DE Derek Barnett (6-2 7/8, 264) ran the 40 in 4.87 and 4.92 seconds, had a 31-inch vertical leap, a 9-foot-4 broad jump, a 4.36-second short shuttle, a 7.12-second three-cone drill, and added 20 lifts on the bench press.
» RB Alvin Kamara (5-10 1/8, 213) ran the short shuttle in 4.42 seconds and the three-cone in 7.17 seconds. He stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. He had an excellent workout.
» WR Josh Malone (6-4, 210) stood on all of his combine numbers, but did go through a workout.
» LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin (6-0 1/4, 230) ran four 40s in 4.65, 4.68, 4.71 and 4.73 seconds, and had a 4.38-second short shuttle and a 7.34-second three-cone. He stood on the rest of his combine numbers.
» CB Cameron Sutton (5-10 7/8, 187) ran the short shuttle in 4.18 seconds and the three-cone in 7.13 seconds. he stood on the rest of his combine numbers, and had a very good workout.
» TE Jason Croom (6-4 1/4, 252) ran the 40 in 4.72 and 4.69 seconds, had a 34-inch vertical, a 10-0 broad jump, a 4.53-second short shuttle, a 7.35-second three-cone, and added 23 strength lifts. He didn't play in 2016 because of a knee injury and didn't receive an invite to the combine, but this is a willing blocker who could hear his name called on Day 3 of the draft.
