The first running back in this year’s draft will come off the board in the second-to-last pick of the first round as I have the Eagles taking Bijan Robinson out of Texas.
This may seem like a questionable pick since the Eagles have Miles Sanders who always seemed to get the job done when he was given the opportunity, but he’s a free agent this offseason and rather than re-signing him, they could go the route of taking the top running back in the 2023 NFL Draft class.
Robinson would make too much sense here at No. 30 overall.
The Eagles are one of the most complete teams in the league and they already took the top cornerback in the draft at No. 10 overall so the defense was addressed and they could pick up a legit RB1 in Robinson at No. 30. Their offense is one of the best in the league with Jalen Hurts, DeVonta Smith, and AJ Brown and you add in Robinson and no one will be able to stop Philadelphia.
The Doak Walker Award winner had 1,580 yards and 18 touchdowns in his final season at Texas while averaging 6.1 yards per carry and he had 19 catches for 314 yards and two scores.
Philadelphia should jump at this opportunity.
