Dobbs, which was the fourth round selection of the Steelers in the NFL Draft earlier this year, is working to earn a spot on the Pittsburgh quarterback depth chart behind long-time starter Ben Roethlisberger.
Dobbs earned some praise earlier the offseason, and appears to be in position to earn the No. 2 role if he’s able to outduel former Oklahoma QB Landry Jones.
