Josh Dobbs is not what the Houston Texans need.

With the Houston Texans expected to take quarterback in this year’s draft, they have to conduct their due diligence in order to make sure they select the right player.

The Texans were in attendance at the University of Tennessee’s pro day to take a look at quarterback Josh Dobbs as well as some other players, according to Jeff Risdon of Texans Wire.

The top player that everyone wants to see is Tennessee pass rusher Derek Barnett, but he will likely be off the board when the Texans will be on the clock with the 25th overall pick.

It would also be a surprise if Houston took a pass rusher in the first round.

With the Texans looking to draft a quarterback this year, they were able to get a good look at Josh Dobbs, who’s expected to be taken as late as the sixth round.

Here’s what NFL.com’s draft profile says about Dobbs:

"Dobbs is hardly incompetent as a passer, but he hasn’t shown as much growth with his ball placement and accuracy as scouts had hoped to see from this former four-star prospect. Dobbs has decent size and is an outstanding runner outside the pocket which could appeal to a team looking for a developmental quarterback with play-making ability."

Dobbs finished his college career with 7,138 passing yards, 53 touchdowns and 29 interceptions.

I would be surprised if Dobbs develops into an NFL starter giving his issues with throwing the football.

Another player the Texans likely got a good look at was cornerback Cameron Sutton.

The Texans could use another cornerback after losing A.J. Bouye, but there are questions as to whether Sutton has the skill set to be an outside corner in the NFL.

Sutton is compared to B.W. Webb who’s played for the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints:

"Four-year starter with the fluidity to handle man coverage on the outside, but lacking desired physicality and run-support traits that zone teams covet. Sutton flashed outstanding ball production his first two seasons but saw his per-game production drop since. Could be forced inside due to a lack of size on next level. Punt-return ability could be what gets him on the field first."

Sutton is currently projected to be taken in the third round. That wouldn’t be a bad spot for the Texans to add a cornerback.
