On Wednesday morning, former Ohio State star running back J.K. Dobbins spent a few minutes talking with reporters at the NFL Combine. Although he only spoke for a few minutes, Dobbins made plenty of headlines.
The former Buckeye addressed several topics, ranging from his plans for the Combine, the teams he’s interviewed with and Ohio State’s biggest rival. One thing Dobbins did make clear, however, was the dominance Ohio State owns over its rival: Michigan.
The former star running back made it clear the Buckeyes are the better football program. “We’ve separated from Michigan by a long shot,” Dobbins said when asked about the rivalry between the two teams.
But he wasn’t done talking about rivalries just yet. The former Buckeyes star was asked about a potential “rivalry” with former Wisconsin star running back Jonathan Taylor heading into the Combine.
“I don’t really see it as a rivalry, you know?” Dobbins said. “He plays on a different team than me. He’s not on defense, so I’m not going against him. If there’s a rivalry, I think I won the better of that because we beat them every time we played them.”

Dobbins has legitimate competition when it comes to the other running backs in the 2020 draft class.
Georgia’s Deandre Swift is expected to be the first running back off the board. However, Dobbins, Taylor and LSU running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire are in the mix as well.
Who will go first?
