When looking back at this draft class a few years from now there is a strong argument to be made that Bijan Robinson is the best player and could be the best running back in the NFL. However, he could slip to the Buffalo Bills because the running back position has been devalued over the past few seasons and this year’s class of running backs might be one of the deepest in recent memory.
This shouldn’t stop the Buffalo Bills from drafting Bijan Robinson though in the first round if he is still available when they are on the clock.
The former Texas running back is a complete, three-down running back that really doesn’t have a glaring weakness. He is a powerful running back that can make runs between the tackles but has the speed to get outside and is someone that could handle 250+ carries in a season. Johnson also is an effective pass catcher out of the backfield and does a good job in pass protection picking up the blitz.
While the Buffalo Bills do have James Cook, and he certainly could handle the responsibilities as a featured running back if paired with a running back to handle short-yardage situations, Bijan Robinson has a chance to be the best running back in the league and that might be too tough to pass up.
