If you watch SEC football, you probably know that former Tennessee QB Joshua Dobbs earned a very difficult degree while in Knoxville.
The star quarterback, who is now preparing for this month’s NFL draft, got his degree in aerospace engineering, something he’s surely been asked about by NFL squads.
On Thursday, ESPN tweeted a quote from Dobbs where he discusses why his difficult major will make preparing for an NFL season a breeze:

That quote didn’t impress former Mizzou WR T.J. Moe, though. The ex-Tiger sounded off on Dobbs’ ability (or lack thereof) to read opposing defenses in a response to the ESPN tweet:
Apparently reading a defense is more difficult than astronautics because he never could read coverage on the fly. https://t.co/N4uhEftOYH

Moe went undrafted following his college career and now hosts a radio show in the St. Louis area after a brief stint in the NFL.
Dobbs won’t be one of the first quarterbacks taken in this month’s draft, but he should at least hear his name called before the end of the seventh and final round. Then, he’ll be able to get to work trying to prove Moe wrong.
