Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

Height/Weight: 5-11, 215

Key stats: Rushed for 1,580 yards and 18 TDs in 2022, averaging 6.1 yards per carry on 258 attempts.

College honors: Won the Doak Walker Award as the nation's top running back and was a unanimous All-America selection last season.

Background/other info: Widely considered the top running back in this draft and among the top offensive weapons overall, but where/when he'll be chosen remains a question after no running backs were taken in the first round last year. Should he be selected in the top 10, he'd be the first running back taken that high since Saquon Barkley (No. 2 overall) in 2018. Played in 31 games with 28 starts over three years at Texas, finishing fourth in school history in rushing yards (3,410) and total TDs (41; 33 rushing, eight receiving) and compiling 18 career 100-yard games, including seven straight at one point. Became the fourth Texas running back to be named first-team All-American by all media outlets that make selections, joining James Saxton (1961), Earl Campbell (1977) and Ricky Williams (1997-98). As a pass catcher, added 60 receptions for 805 yards and eight TDs to his rushing numbers over three seasons. Posted three 2,000-yard rushing seasons in high school in Arizona.
