Watch Pittsburgh Steelers QB draft pick Joshua Dobbs throw at rookie minicamp
PITTSBURGH — After the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Joshua Dobbs in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL draft, quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner said he had to work with the Tennessee grad like he would need him to start as soon as possible.
He also acknowledged that’s not the case. Ben Roethlisberger is the franchise quarterback for as long as he wants to be at this point.
But Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ other first-choice weapons weren’t at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on Saturday. It was Day 2 of rookie minicamp, which meant Fichtner could focus as much attention as he wanted on his projected quarterback.
