There was a longer NFL Draft run for J.K. Dobbins, a former running back for Ohio State. He will still get a good salary to start his professional career with the Baltimore Ravens.
Dobbins’ four-year deal with the Ravens is worth $5,729,436, according to Spotrac.com. In addition, there is a signing bonus of $1,726,862.
This salary is in the middle of the range between the contracts of the No. 54 overall pick, former Iowa defensive end A.J. Epenesa ($5,877,299), and the No. 56 overall pick, former Alabama defensive tackle Raekwon Davis ($5,655,499), both of whom signed with the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins, respectively.
Due to the pay cap system that determines each team’s draft pool, rookie contracts in the NFL rarely see extensive negotiation.
The signing bonus that the Houston Texans gave to Dobbins is around $20,000 more than the signing bonus that the team gave to Max Scharping, an offensive lineman out of Northern Illinois and last year’s No. 55 pick by the Texans. However, there is an additional $660,000 added to the total contract amount.
Miles Sanders, a running back from Penn State, was picked 53rd overall by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2019. His total contract value is estimated to be around $5.3 million, including a signing bonus of around $1.9 million.
As far as we know, Dobbins is the first of Ohio State’s ten picked players to sign his contract.
