There should be more belief that J.K. Dobbins belongs in the first round discussion
J.K. Dobbins is racking up stats left and right out of Ohio State’s backfield but not everyone is sold on where he should be considered in the draft. Here’s what Tony had to say about all of that at the 2:15 update:
I still don’t understand how so many people don’t put Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins in the first-round conversation. In my opinion, he’s a complete back that’s a terrific ball carrier, catches the ball well out and effectively blocks when necessary. I love his ability to create yards, as he just displayed on that touchdown run to put the Buckeyes up 27-7, as he multi-cut his way to the end zone, displaying balance and body control in what are pretty miserable conditions.
Dobbins outplayed Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor, but is that enough for some people to change their minds? If it is not, there is plenty of Buckeyes football left to be played which could prove to be convincing.
