The Philadelphia Eagles interest in potentially selecting Texas RB Bijan Robinson with the No. 10 overall pick is “real,” as per NFL Network’s James Palmer.
According to Palmer, the Eagles are also considering Ohio State offensive lineman Paris Johnson Jr. and pass-rushers with the No. 10 selection.
The top edge-rushers will likely be off the board by No. 10, the Eagles could target Georgia’s Nolan Smith or Iowa’s Lukas Van Ness if they go that route.
Robinson is a very intriguing option for the Eagles. The Eagles have a championship-level roster in place, which gives them the luxury to potentially draft a dynamic talent like Robinson.
Pairing a talent like Robinson with QB Jalen Hurts would make the Eagles offense extremely hard to defend.
Historically the Eagles do not select running backs high in the draft, but this is a unique situation and Robinson is a rare talent.
