Robert Joshua Dobbs (born January 26, 1995) is an American football quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the Tennessee Volunteers.
Dobbs was born and raised in Alpharetta, Georgia, the son of Stephanie and Robert Dobbs. His mother retired from United Parcel Service (UPS) as a district manager in corporate human resources and his father is a senior vice president for Wells Fargo bank. Joshua has alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease causing hair loss, which first developed when he was transitioning from elementary to junior high school.
Dobbs started playing competitive football when he was five years old. He attended Wesleyan School and then Alpharetta High School. As a senior with the Alpharetta High School football team, he threw for 3,625 yards with 29 touchdowns. Dobbs was a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and a four-star by Scout.com. He originally committed to Arizona State University to play college football, but in February 2013 changed his commitment to the University of Tennessee.
Dobbs majored in aerospace engineering during his time at the University of Tennessee. The university presented him with the 2017 Torchbearer Award, the highest honor for an undergraduate student, which recognizes accomplishments in the community and academics.
As a true freshman in 2013, Dobbs played in five games with four starts after starter Justin Worley was injured against the Alabama Crimson Tide. He started his first career game against the Missouri Tigers. He completed 26 of 42 passes for 240 yards with two interceptions in the 31-3 loss. Overall, he completed 72 of 121 passes for 695 yards with two touchdowns and six interceptions and also rushed for 189 yards and a touchdown. Dobbs competed with Worley and Nathan Peterman to be Tennessee's starter for the 2014 season. Worley would win the competition, but Dobbs would take over as the starter in November after Worley was injured. Dobbs threw for 1,206 yards with nine touchdowns and six interceptions during his sophomore season. He finished the 2014 season with 469 yards rushing and eight rushing touchdowns in just six games. Dobbs was named the 2015 TaxSlayer Bowl MVP.
In the final game of his Tennessee career, Dobbs helped lead the Volunteers past the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the 2016 Music City Bowl by a score of 38-28. He had 291 passing yards, one passing touchdown, 11 rushes for 118 yards, and three rushing touchdowns. For his efforts, he was named the MVP of the game.
Dobbs received an invitation to the Senior Bowl and was named the starting quarterback for the South. He finished the game completing 12 of 15 pass attempts for 102 passing yards and an interception, as the South defeated the North 16-15. The majority of NFL draft experts and analysts projected him to be a fourth to sixth round pick. NFL analyst Mike Mayock projected him to be selected in the second round and NFL.com projected him to be drafted in the third round. After attending the NFL Scouting Combine, he was ranked the seventh best quarterback in the draft by ESPN, the ninth best quarterback by Sports Illustrated, and NFLDraftScout.com ranked him the eighth best quarterback in the draft. He chose to attend Tennessee's Pro Day, alongside 19 other teammates, but decided to only perform positional drills. He held workouts for six teams, including the Kansas City Chiefs, Tennessee Titans, Carolina Panthers, San Diego Chargers, Pittsburgh Steelers, and New Orleans Saints.
