NFL Executive Calls Bijan Robinson One of Best RB Prospects in 10 Years

Bijan Robinson is a certified college football superstar, and with the NFL Combine approaching, Robinson has been the subject of many NFL evaluations by scouts across the nation.

While Robinson’s talent has shown up on the national scene, Robinson has earned some high praise from NFL scouts, personalities, and executives but the most recent name added to the list comes from NFL insider Jordan Schultz.


“He’s one of the best running back prospects I’ve seen over the past 10+ years. He changes everything for your offense,” said one NFL executive.

Hearing that Robinson is one of the highest-ranking running back prospects in the last decade is a massive testament to the former Longhorn when you think about some of the names that have walked across the NFL Draft stage in that time frame.


Some recent running backs that come to mind are Iowa State’s Breece Hall, Jonathan Taylor, D’Andre Swift, Saquon Barkley, Nick Chubb, Leonard Fournette, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Karama, and Derrick Henry. If Robinson can continue to find himself among names like the ones above, his NFL career should be a thing of beauty.

Robinson has been projected as a first-round draft pick in most NFL mock drafts and most recently was mocked to the Buffalo Bills with the 27th overall pick in Mel Kiper’s mock. The NFL Scouting Combine is officially underway and with it comes more eyes on Robinson with each rep he takes.
