This deal amount is roughly in the middle of that of former Iowa defensive end A.J. Epenesa, who was selected by the Buffalo Bills at No. 54 ($5,877,299), and former Alabama defensive tackle Raekwon Davis, who was selected by the Miami Dolphins at No. 56 ($5,655,499).

Due to the fact that teams’ draft pools are established according to a formula based on the salary cap, NFL rookie contracts do not often entail a significant amount of bargaining.

Dobbins’ signing bonus is around $20,000 more than the one that former Northern Illinois offensive tackle Max Scharping, who was selected by the Houston Texans with the 55th overall pick a year ago, received from the team. However, the total value of the contract is around 660,000 dollars higher.

Miles Sanders, a former running back for Penn State, was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 53rd overall pick in 2019. Sanders received a total value of approximately $5.3 million, including approximately a $1.9 million signing bonus.

It is speculated that Dobbins will be the first of Ohio State’s ten drafted players to sign their professional contract.
