Future Watch: JK Dobbins Football Cards, Ravens – J.K. Dobbins was selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 55th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. The 5-10, 212 pound running back has the ability to be an impact player so don’t let the draft position fool you.

This running back was good right out of the gate for Ohio State. He gained 181 yards in his first game. He played because of injury and got over 100 yards for six-straight games becoming just the fourth running back in the history of the program to accomplish that feat. He was great in the Big Ten Championship and beat Maurice Clarett for most yards gained by a freshman.

In his three years at Ohio State, he rushed for 4,459 yards and 38 touchdowns. He sported a 6.2 yards per carry average! He averaged 9.1 yards per catch and had five touchdowns through the air.

His awards included First-Team All-American in 2019, First-Team All-Big Ten, Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, and in 2017, he was the MVP in the Big Ten Championship game.

Dobbins was limited at the NFL Combine but he did move the weight bar 23 times, showing he may be small in stature, but he has plenty of power.

Collectors can find BJ.K. Dobbin’s pre-draft cards in and 2020 Leaf products as well as 2020 Panini Contenders Draft Picks and 2020 Prizm Collegiate Football. He will also be featured in regular season products from Panini America that have recently released including Score and Legacy.
