There is an abundance of quality quarterbacks in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft. In recent times, athletes such as Bryce Young, Will Levis, CJ Stroud, Anthony Richardson, and Hendon Hooker have garnered much attention.
But football is a team sport, and no squad can win without a reliable rushing attack. That’s why, even in a league that favors passing, running backs still play a crucial role.
Moreover, Bijan Robinson of Texas is the most exciting running back prospect. This article will examine the most likely destinations for the Longhorns star, who has been compared to Giants running back Saquon Barkley.
3. Carolina Panthers
Either CJ Stroud or Bryce Young will be selected with the first overall pick by the Carolina Panthers. Even with Miles Sanders in the mix, they should consider taking Robinson if he falls to the second round and utilize him to replace Christian McCaffrey.
Frank Reich’s offense might benefit greatly from having two young stars, even though they are both rookies, provided they can stay healthy. The Panthers have always prioritized running the ball, so he’s a natural match.
2. Miami Dolphins
In 2022, the Miami Dolphins passing offense was a game-changer. Tua Tagovialoa clicked with Tyreek Hill right away, and Jaylen Waddle benefited from the extra room he provided.
The rushing attack, though, often fell short of expectations. With the addition of a future Hall of Famer like Bijan Robinson, they might easily become the NFL’s most prolific scoring unit.
1. Philadelphia Eagles
When it comes to draft selections, the Philadelphia Eagles are back in the driver’s seat. Howie Roseman could make some moves and work his magic to snag another star, and he would still be in a good position to grab a promising young player.
The Eagles still have a number of choices to attempt to replace Miles Sanders, who signed with the Panthers, and who they have to replace via a committee. None of them, though, can hold a candle to this tackle-breaking monster in terms of raw skill, disruptiveness, and physical prowess.
