According to FOX Sports’ Charles Davis, himself a UT alum, Dobbs’ potential future career in aerospace engineering could lead to NFL execs questioning his lack of commitment to the game. Davis recently shared his concerns regarding this subject according to Jimmy Hyams of GridironNow:

“He’s got to make sure everyone knows he loves football,” Davis said. “If a kid has other options, immediately scouts want to zero in on, ‘Does he love the game first?’ Evaluators are going to use that against him, as crazy as that sounds.

“If he (Dobbs) were to ask me, I’d tell him point blank, ‘Make sure you let them know you love the game and you are willing to do everything possible to become an NFL player. … Let them know you don’t want to build airplanes for another 10 to 15 years.”

The Tennessee signal caller has garnered national attention for his brain, as well as his athletic ability. The long-time starter for the Vols has made no secret that he dreams of a career in aerospace engineering, and he did multiple internships at Pratt & Whitney before last season. 

Beyond stupid.  If he can't make  a 53 man NFL roster then you leave the sport permanently.  He has to do his due diligence for his career as nothing is guaranteed in the NFL.  Plus, the reviews and mock drafts have not been kind to him.
What kinda caddy? It makes a difference. I wanna go out in style. Not drunk as s***, dead on the kitchen floor with my pants around my ankles with a tub of KY in one hand and a dildo in the other.

lol, nerd alert!

he better convince scouts he is not into science.  If he was into drugs and guns, that would be understandable, but nerds arent allowed in the NFL.

This is all you need to know about Mr. Davis:

"FOUR YEARS AS A VOLUNTEER

A four-year starter as a defensive back for the University of Tennessee from 1983-86, Davis appeared in 39 games and posted 234 tackles (146 solo), 13 interceptions, four fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles. Following his career at Tennessee, he signed as a rookie free agent with the Dallas Cowboys and participated in the club’s 1987 training camp.

The dude knows nothing about what it takes to make the draft or an NFL team.
