The Jets got their do-it-all stud runner in Breece Hall last draft, but will they have to deal with stopping Bijan in their own division? I see shades of prime Todd Gurley in his game.

A dream prospect at the position, Robinson will put the round one running back value discourse to the test.
He has a pro ready build at 5’11, 215 pounds with not an ounce of bad weight. In 2022 he ran for 1,580 yards with 18 rushing touchdowns and most notably 104 missed tackles forced. Per PFF, he averaged 4.2 yards after contact with 41 runs of 10+ yards.
When Robinson touches the ball, whether on a carry or in the pass game, he hits full throttle as fast as you’ll ever see. This becomes special due to his stop and start ability. It’s like watching a steak knife cut through butter in the open field. He has the burst and speed to win the outside, but the contact balance and vision to get downhill from the inside.
Robinson has been used in the slot and can even factor in the WR screen game. His ability to change gears with zero delay after the catch is problematic for defensive backs attempting to come to balance against him.
In pass protection he displays good awareness pre-snap to pick up oncoming blitzers. He’ll throw his body around, unafraid of the dirty work.
Overall, I see Robinson as a similar threat to how Todd Gurley looked playing under Sean McVay. He’s more than just a running back, with receiving and big play ability to impact the game in any personnel package. He’s a first round pick and a top five running back by year two of his NFL career.
