A pair of Tennessee stars accept invitation to Senior Bowl
The Senior Bowl has become a tremendous tool for players looking to boost their draft status. Two Tennessee players will get that opportunity in this year’s game.
Quarterback Joshua Dobbs and cornerback Cam Sutton have accepted their invitations to play in the Senior Bowl, according to the team’s Twitter account.

Dobbs’ final season didn’t end the way he had hoped, but he played extremely well down the stretch. Finishing with 2,655 yards with 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, Dobbs had by far his best season throwing the football. He also added a career-high 713 yards and 9 touchdowns on the ground.
Sutton missed half of his senior season due to injury but returned for the final three games. This is an important opportunity to show NFL coaches what he can do, especially given his injury.
