What Are Bijan Robinson’s 6 Best NFL Team Fits?

A future bellcow and arguably the top player in the 2023 NFL Draft class, Texas running back Bijan Robinson enters the fold as arguably the most gifted runner to enter the league in some time. A blend of size, speed, agility, and comfortability in space, here are a few of my favorite NFL fits for Bijan Robinson.

Philadelphia Eagles

Robinson is a luxury player, that deserves a luxury pick, to a luxury team. Whether it’s at No. 10 or he’s somehow there at No. 30, the Eagles should be interested. After winning the NFC last fall, slotting Robinson in Philadelphia’s offense is simply unfair. The team lost Miles Sanders to Carolina, and filling his shoes with Robinson’s, behind that offensive line, alongside those offensive skill players, and that quart… you get the point.

Los Angeles Chargers

Who knows if Austin Ekeler remains in town or not? If he goes elsewhere prior to draft night or is sent away when the clock is rolling, Robinson could be the guy for the future. I like the depth they have in former day-three picks Joshua Kelley and Isaiah Spiller, but Robinson is a different type of athlete that would give the Chargers a potential superstar in the backfield on a rookie contract.

Baltimore Ravens

We know Baltimore likes to run the ball, and what better way to try and sway Lamar Jackson back toward Charm City than to add a talent like Robinson? The team just added Odell Beckham Jr. on the perimeter, and Robinson, J.K Dobbins, Mark Andrews, Beckham, Rashod Bateman (when healthy), and Jackson would be a load to handle from a defensive game plan perspective.

New England Patriots

Rhamondre Stevenson is a nice young ballplayer, but you don’t skip on drafting Robinson because you have Stevenson. We know Bill Belichick does what he wants come draft day, and Robinson would thrive in a run-centric attack behind a front five that is consistently above average.

Cincinnati Bengals

Samaje Perine as RB2 is gone and Joe Mixon is constantly in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. I won’t speculate on his future in football, but man, Robinson in that offense presents a true case of ‘pick your poison’ for OC Brian Callahan. Whether you want to utilize him on slower linebackers in space or put the offense on his back in the chilly winter months, he can wear a multitude of hats, and wear them extremely well.

Buffalo Bills

Similar to the Patriots and Stevenson, you don’t skip on Robinson because you have James Cook. A tandem that could provide a little thunder and lightning into the Bills’ high-octane attack, taking the pressure off of Josh Allen’s shoulders has gone overlooked over the last few years. Robinson can create inside the tackles, bounce it to the perimeter, make multiple guys miss, and work up to fifth gear in the blink of an eye. He’s a special, special prospect that’ll succeed wherever he lands.
