Guess what? The coming NFL Draft’s top-rated running back prospect, Bijan Robinson, hung out on NFL Network with Andre Siciliano and later on ESPN. Guess what he talked out… Of course, the Philadelphia Eagles and Jalen Hurts came up in the conversation! At this point, why wouldn’t they?

Recently, the Atlanta Falcons have emerged as a darkhorse franchise that might snatch the former Texas Longhorn from the real Bird Gang (take that Jonathan Gannon) and remove any temptation for Philly’s Birds to select him at the tenth-overall selection.

We’re aware the 2022 Doak Walker Award winner and Unanimous All-American also, in addition to Atlanta, visited the Eagles and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. How did his visit to the City of Brotherly Love go? Well, we’re glad that you asked. How about we let him tell you?

Bijan Robinson also shows love to Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (they share an agent by the way).

Call us crazy. When you start showing love to Troy the custodian (we’re pretty sure that’s who Robinson is talking about), that pretty much seals the deal for us. We’ve moved past being more than 50 percent sure that Bijan will be selected at ten.

Oh, and by the way, following his conversation with Siciliano, he hung out on ESPN’s NFL Live show. On their broadcast, he stated that the one quarterback that he would love playing next to other than Patrick Mahomes would be… you guessed it… or Jalen Hurts.

I’ve gone back and forth about this. I have argued for and against the Eagles drafting this young man tenth overall. Then, I leaned the other way and drew up seven reasons why Philly should ignore him. Talk about a flip-flop, huh?

I think I’m leaning the other way now… again. Sue me… Not only am I inching dangerously close to joining the ‘Bijan or Bust’ train. I’m beginning to feel like I’d be slightly disappointed if the Eagles didn’t draft him, especially if he winds up with the Dallas Cowboys.

Stay tuned, the tone might change again by the end of the evening. Thank goodness Howie Roseman and his staff have to make this decision.
