Dobbins was exceptionally productive in a three-year career at Ohio State, rushing for 4,459 yards and a 6.2-yard average and 38 touchdowns. He combines vision and power with a low-to-the-ground stride, but with the quickness to bounce outside for big plays. His running style is not unlike that of Ravens RB Mark Ingram, who meshed well with the style of offense the club has installed to suit QB Lamar Jackson.
"He's so compact and he's so strong, he's got tremendous balance," NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah said on Friday's NFL Network/ESPN broadcast. Jeremiah ranked Dobbins the No. 37 overall player in the draft.
The Ravens were the NFL's runaway leader in rushing yards last season, with Jackson providing much of that production himself, at 206 yards per game.
At 5-foot-10, 200 pounds, he is considered a deep threat but one who comes lacking in length and without a high-point advantage. Duvernay exploded last season for the Longhorns, amassing 1,386 yards on 106 receptions.
