Tennessee Volunteers quarterback Joshua Dobbs has been selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 135th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft!

Dobbs finished off a terrific stint in Knoxville this past season and now heads north to the Steel City where he’ll be an understudy behind Ben Roethlisberger and compete for a backup job with Landry Jones. He’s the sixth Vol to be taken in this year’s draft, joining Josh Malone, Jalen Reeves-Maybin, Cameron Sutton, Alvin Kamara and Derek Barnett.

Congrats to Josh Dobbs and best of luck with Pittsburgh!
