Tennessee QB Joshua Dobbs
Tennessee has a ton of experience across the board heading into 2016, and the depth is there at most positions as well.
Except, of course, at quarterback, where it's Joshua Dobbs and then a bunch of question marks.
Dobbs threw for 2,291 yards, rushed for 671 and totaled 26 touchdowns (15 passing, 11 rushing) as a junior for the Volunteers in 2015. He's a dynamic dual threat who can hit the home run on the ground, has improved as a passer and will be a contender for the Heisman Trophy in 2016 as long as he stays healthy.
If he doesn't, though, things could get dicey.
Quinten Dormady completed 13 of his 21 passes as Dobbs' backup last year and is the only quarterback on Tennessee's roster with game experience. While Dormady has the talent to be effective, Dobbs is the guy who can make the Vols contenders on the national stage.
He's earned the trust of head coach Butch Jones in the passing game, comprises a dangerous backfield that includes backs Jalen Hurd and Alvin Kamara and needs to be the centerpiece in 2016.
