Joshua Dobbs is crediting another former Tennessee quarterback for helping his football development as the NFL Draft approaches.

Dobbs, 22, said on "PFT Live" that he learned from Peyton Manning throughout the last four years.

“The best advice, easily, I’ve ever gotten from Peyton Manning is the importance of preparation,” Dobbs said. “He just talks about his preparation each and every week, his pre-snap process, his communication at the quarterback position and how important those three areas were. And then to go on the field with him and see the importance of each and every rep. Every rep is important and he’s trying to maximize that rep and make it a game rep. So to see how important your preparation is and seeing how important each rep is that’s definitely made me a better quarterback in my college career and that’s something I’ve learned and will take to the next level.”
