J.K. All Day.

J.K. Dobbins may have slipped to the late second round of the NFL Draft, but that isn't stopping him from getting lots of love from Madden.

Dobbins is the highest-rated rookie running back in this year's edition of EA Sports' Madden video game despite being just the fifth running back taken in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Dobbins is the second former Ohio State running back in five years to earn the highest rating among rookie running backs after Ezekiel Elliott debuted with an 84 rating in Madden 17.

Mike Weber, the most recent Buckeye back to enter the league, debuted with a 64 overall rating in last year's edition of the game after he was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Madden 21 is slated to be released on August 25, 2020, and as usual, the game will be chock-full of playable Buckeyes, with enough former Ohio State players to make an entire team, if you so desire.
