Head coach Jim Harbaugh indicated Tuesday that Dobbins has made significant progress in the passing game, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Dobbins displayed explosiveness as a runner last season (6.0 YPC) but appears to be targeting additional reps by enhancing his abilities as a receiver. This is especially important to point out given that Harbaugh also emphasized Tuesday his interest in getting running backs more involved in that realm in 2021. Dobbins saw his workload increase down the stretch last season, averaging 12.8 carries for 82.5 yards and 1.2 rushing touchdowns per game over his final six regular-season games played, which could signal a breakout sophomore campaign. However, the Ravens also recently committed to Gus Edwards for another two seasons, so Dobbins is set to have competition for reps for years to come.
