Bijan Robinson was a 5 star recruit out of high school and the Arizona player of the year. 3rd-year junior. Robinson is a complete back: speed, power, elusiveness, receiving ability. Robinson isn’t a true power back, but he has strong legs and hits with force all the time. The speed part of his game is extremely impressive. The pace he moves with makes it look like the rest of the field is moving in slow motion. Even with this speed and power, that’s not the most impressive part of his game: it’s his vision. Robinson reads his offensive line beautifully most of the time. His footwork is good, though not one of a kind good, and will get better with more reps. Robinson hasn’t had crazy amounts of wear and tear as he is only a 3rd year junior so he will have a lot left in the tank for the NFL. Bijan Robinson is in for a huge year this year. With more weapons on the Longhorn offense, Robinson will have a bit of the pressure taken off him. Since he is still so young, the upside with this already great back is astronomical.
