2023 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about BIJAN ROBINSON:
Texas | H: 6000 W: 222 40: 4.45 A: 3118 H: 0934 W: 7434
Junior entry, three-year starter, Tucson, AZ. Doak Walker Award winner and unanimous All-America. Two-time first team All-Big 12. Robinson is the factory-made prototype for any offense. His skill set will present weapons for the running and passing games right away. The combination of elusiveness and contact balance makes him a tough ball carrier to get on the ground but then he adds the finishing touch of elite runaway speed and short area quickness to create and lengthen separation from defenders. Has wide receiver-caliber hands, understands how to protect himself, and shows the knack for the big play in big moments. A day one starter in any scheme with the ceiling of quickly being one of the top backs in the league. Has a rare level of looseness in his lower body joints that make cuts, turns, and change of direction look like they’re in fast forward. Plays with a different level of athleticism than his peers. Breaks tackles at a record-rate and will constantly gain yards after contact. Couples that with credible breakaway speed. Elite pass-catcher who did not drop a ball in 2022. Shows late hands and the ability to twist his frame to reach an off-target pace. Immediate feel for traffic, space, and opportunity once he gets the ball. Can make the impossible cuts look natural. Will get a bit too hoppy on short-yardage situations. Needs to be more effective on simple inside runs where putting the head down and falling forward is the best option. Put the ball on the ground too often in 2021, will allow too much separation between the ball and his frame. Often a one-and-done blocker, needs more sustainment. The elite playmaker left the Texas program as one of most productive backs in school history and has every tool in the box to be a superstar at the next level.
