A top 2020 NFL running back prospect, J.K. Dobbins is sure to be coveted in dynasty fantasy football rookie drafts. How does his profile measure up when considering RotoViz’s extensive work on indicators of future fantasy success? Let’s explore.

As a Recruit

Dobbins was one of the top running back prospects in the class of 2017. Per 247 Composite rankings, he was the No. 46 overall player and the number two rated all-purpose running back in the class. He was graded as a four-star player and received scholarship offers from many of the top college programs in addition to Ohio State, including Alabama, Penn State, USC, and Florida.

He made an impact from the moment he set foot in Columbus. Just check out this unrestrained praise from running backs coach Tony Alford following 2017 preseason workouts:

This guy loves football. And he’s smart. I would say from my 22 years of coaching – and this is not to take anything away from anybody else – but in my 22 years, this guy has picked it up faster than anybody I’ve ever been around as far as true freshmen. Faster than anyone I’ve seen. He understands the offense and he has picked up the nuances of it very, very quickly.

Athletic Measurements

Dobbins is listed at 5 feet 10 inches and 217 pounds on his official player page for Ohio State. Since he was such an elite high school prospect, we have some really early athletic measurements on him, including his Nike+ Camp Ratings.
