Brian Robinson Jr.
RB - WAS
The dependable 6'2" 224 lb Brian Robinson lands in Washington via the third round of the NFL Draft. Robinson bided his time behind a plethora of 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 piece who can take over if Antonio Gibson gets hurt or continues to fumble away opportunities.
According to Commanders head coach Ron Rivera, we could see third-rounder Brian Robinson and Antonio Gibson work together in a similar fashion to how Jonathan Stewart and De'Angelo Williams operated during Rivera's tenure in Carolina.
Coaches lie all the time so I wouldn't overreact, but Robinson owning a legitimate 1B role on offense isn't shocking based on Gibson's injuries and their investment in the Alabama running back in this year's draft.
Robinson finished third in missed tackles and seventh in PFF rushing grade (90.4) while also flashing his chops in the passing game last season. He caught 35 of 38 targets for 296 receiving yards.
Robinson is far from a can't-miss prospect but offers the physicality and size to be a thumper for the Commanders.
8/16: Now running ahead of Gibson in camp, getting praise for his 3-down traits. Robinson might just be THE leauge-winning late round RB of 2022.
