Texas running back Bijan Robinson sparked some discussion late last night with an Instagram story that showed a gorgeous view of Lincoln Financial Field. It was confirmed this morning that the Eagles have indeed brought in the dominant runner for a pre-draft visit.

The cream of the crop at the NFL Combine this year was Bijan Robinson and for good reason. With 1,580 yards in his final season and 6.1 yards per carry, the powerhouse entered the offseason as the premier back in his class and cemented that status with a 4.46 40-yard dash and some dazzling agility numbers

The Eagles lost Miles Sanders this offseason and Robinson would add a truly dominant runner who would thrive in this scheme. He’s a three-down back who can wreak havoc inside and out, but is it worth Howie spending a first-round pick on him? That debate will rage right up until draft night, but he is going to be in the conversation…especially after the team have committed to doing some due diligience.
