Article notes that Dobbins ran a 4.53, but I can’t find any record of that. Where did this happen? He didn’t run at the combine, and I don’t think Ohio State had their pro day.

I believe he’s expected to run considerably faster than this, which I imagine would impact his score.

4.53 might be Dillon's number.

His 2017 OSU combine 40 time was 4.32.

Make of that what you will.

The 4.53 is an estimated 40 time because Dobbins did not run at the combine and his pro day was cancelled. We're making sure the entry at ESPN gets edited and we'll have it edited when we re-run BackCAST here on FO next week. Sorry about the error.
