SEC, NFL fans react: Alpharetta’s Josh Dobbs drafted by Steelers

Former Alpharetta High School quarterback Josh Dobbs was selected in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

Dobbs was selected No. 125 overall— the same pick that former Mississippi State and current Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Dak Prescott was picked in 2016.

In four years at Tennessee, Dobbs threw for 7,138 yards and 53 touchdowns. Dobbs also rushed for 2,160 yards and 32 touchdowns in his career at Tennessee.

Dobb’s teammate and Tennessee defensive back Cam Sutton was also drafted by the Steelers in the third round. Dobbs and Sutton were roommates during their freshman years at Tennessee.

Dobbs was one of six Tennessee Vols selected in this weekend’s NFL Draft along with Sutton, wide receiver Josh Malone, defensive end Derek Barnett, running back Alvin Kamara and linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin.

Here’s what Tennessee and NFL fans had to say about Dobbs’ move to Pittsburgh:

😎 I'll admit, even as a Gators fan, that Cam Sutton and Josh Dobbs are good players and picks I liked us getting... 💛❤️💙— Bryson White (@TheGr8WHiTE_23) April 30, 2017
