The projections for top running back selected in the 2020 NFL Draft have yielded a two-horse race between D'Andre Swift and Jonathan Taylor, but the third man on that list is J.K. Dobbins, according to odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

The former Ohio State Buckeye, Dobbins, has +1100 odds to get picked first at the position. It may be unlikely that happens, but most mock drafts still have the running back going somewhere in the second round. Each analyst has a different theory as to where, however.

Bleacher Report
Matt Miller, of Bleacher Report, has Dobbins going to the Baltimore Ravens with the No. 55 overall selection in the second round.

CBS Sports
Ryan Wilson, of CBS Sports, has the Kansas City Chiefs selecting Dobbins with the No. 63 overall selection in the second round.

Walter Football
Walter Cherepinsky, of Walter Football, has Dobbins off the board higher than his analytical colleagues, projecting that the Detroit Lions take Dobbins with the No. 37 overall pick in the second round.

USA Today
Luke Easterling, of USA Today's Draftwire, has the Tennessee Titans drafting Dobbins with the No. 61 overall pick in the second round, similar to Wilson's thought process.

FanDuel Sportsbook
Dobbins' NFL Draft prop bet odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, rank the former Buckeyes' draft pick over/under mark to be 44.5, which would place him in the mid second round. Notably, the Indianapolis Colts own pick No. 44, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have pick No. 45.
