The dependable 6'2" 224 lb Brian Robinson landed in Washington in the third round of the NFL Draft. Robinson bided his time behind many talented backs at Alabama before finally taking over in 2021 as the lead guy. He responded by ranking fourth in missed tackles and eighth in ten-plus yard runs last year (per PFF). Robinson might not wow people, but he's s battle-tested and sure-handed depth player. After Antonio Gibson's butter fingers cropped up again in the preseason, Robinson was on his way to supplanting him as the lead back. Then tragedy struck. Robinson sustained multiple gunshot wounds in an attempted robbery. While none of his injuries were stated as life-threatening, his rookie season has been left in limbo.
