Robinson’s revelation has sparked intrigue among fans and analysts, who are closely monitoring the draft to see where the talented player will end up.
Many believe that Robinson is one of the best prospects in the 2023 draft, and some even say that he might be the very best. However, he plays in a position that no longer gets drafted high, as quarterbacks, pass-rushers, offensive linemen, wide receivers, cornerbacks and others usually get picked earlier than running backs.
Despite that, Robinson is expected to be a first-round pick, with many wondering how early he will be picked. The Eagles, who have two first-round picks (10th overall and 30th overall), are seen as a possible spot for him. The Buccaneers, the other team Robinson met with, pick 19th overall.
Robinson’s comment that he only met with two teams in person may suggest that those teams are particularly interested in him. However, he also added that he talked to many other teams through Zoom calls and not in person.
It remains to be seen which team will ultimately select Robinson, but his impressive track record and skills on the field make him a highly sought-after prospect.
Robinson finished his college career at Texas with 3,410 rushing yards and 33 touchdowns, averaging 6.3 yards per carry. Robinson also added 60 catches for 805 yards and 8 more scores.
With his talent and potential, Robinson is expected to make an impact in the NFL and help take his team to new heights. Fans will be eagerly awaiting the draft to see where Robinson ends up and how he performs in his rookie season.
