2020 NFL Draft
JK Dobbins is establishing himself as a premier running back prospect heading into the 2020 NFL Draft. More Week 14 Draft notes inside the post. (Rick Osentoski/USA TODAY Sports)

The regular season of the 2019-2020 college football season is basically over. All we have left are conference championship games. As we look toward the 2020 NFL Draft, I have 3 games for Week 14 to go over. We have Ohio State at Michigan, Alabama At Auburn, and Oklahoma At Oklahoma State. Yes, I went chalk this week and watched the 3 obvious games. Deal with it. Who stood out for better or worse as the 2020 NFL Draft draws closer.

Ohio State At Michigan

One guy really stood out here. God, do I love JK Dobbins. Forget about the Gus Johnson slobber fest during the broadcast. Dobbins is just complete tailback. Speed, power, and an ability to make you miss. All of them were on display. It was just another day at the office for Dobbins. 31 carries, 211 yards, and 4 rushing touchdowns. He also became the 2nd leading rusher in the history of the program as a true Junior. He also did it without playing barely any in the 4th quarter all season.

Did I also forget to mention he also had 2 catches for 49 yards too? This was the most impressive part of the game or I should say summarized the day pretty well. Catch a ball out of the backfield, run like the devil trying to escape hell, juke a man out of his shoes, then go get yourself, and then easy score on the next play. Just another easy day at the office JK. Dobbins has moved himself up as the #2 back on my board behind D’Andre Swift.

Shea Patterson is terrible but he wasn’t totally awful today. I think Michigan actually has some interesting receivers. Donovan Peoples-Jones is probably my favorite of the group. Still, Nico Collins, Nick Eubanks, and Ronnie Bell all can play. It’s gotta be the best receiver group Michigan has ever had and they still got waxed.

Let me end with Jeff Okudah. There’s no point in even throwing the ball in his direction. 2 more pass breakups in this one. No one can even complete balls on the guy. He’s dominant every time I watch him. I think you can take Okudah at the top end of the draft and feel like you got a number one corner.

Alabama At Auburn

The Iron Bowl was drunk. 48-45 Auburn win? What the hell was that? Drunk, I tell ya, Drunk! Derrick Brown continues to be a game wrecker. 3.5 more tackles for loss. Might be the most valuable defensive player in the country.

For Alabama, I think this just spoke to how good their offensive weapons are. The defense may have gone to shit, but they have weapons. Najee Harris carried the rock 27 times for 146 yards and a score. If Derrick Henry was 10 pounds lighter and could hurdle, he would look like Najee Harris. Bama backs have been hit or miss but Harris will make it. I thought the Bama offensive line did a really nice job here creating holes on a fierce defensive front. Harris continues to hurdles guys. It’s amazing to watch.

The receivers are studs, man. Jerry Jeudy was actually held in check. Henry Ruggs and DeVonta Smith are both burners. Plug them in the offense and let them go deep. Every team needs one to stretch the field. The star of the show was Jaylen Waddle and he’s the 4th receiver and not draft eligible.

Oklahoma At Oklahoma State

I came to see Chuba Hubbard and Ceedee Lamb. Neither of them blew me away. I already know what Lamb brings to the table so I wasn’t concerned there. Hubbard had 24 carries for 104 yards, and a score. I wasn’t overly impressed. 4.3 YPC is fine but you better blow me away in the Big 12 and he didn’t. Kennady Brooks was the better back in the game. Hubbard has some wiggle to him but he doesn’t look like he belongs at the top of the running back draft board. I didn’t love Justice Hill either and he’s been a non-factor for Baltimore as a rookie. I was ready for a firework show and never got it.

What I came away with was impressed with the Oklahoma State Corners. Tre Sterling and AJ Green both looked good. If you hold these Oklahoma weapons in check, you’re doing something right. Sterling made a great play in the end zone on a ball to break up a pass. Neither of them has a ton of ball production each having one pick coming into the game. Still, it wasn’t hard to tell that they impacted the game. Both check in at 6-foot-1 and could tell they have some length to them. I will have to do some more work on both but I like what I saw.
