Texas was shut out from the 2022 NFL Draft. Luckily, 2023 features more hope for the Longhorn faithful.

Pro Football Focus released its way-too-early 2023 mock draft on Monday, featuring star running back Bijan Robinson going in the first round. It is rare for a running back to be selected in round one of the NFL Draft in today’s game but PFF believes Robinson provides more to an offense.

Don’t just think of Robinson as a running back. This dude can run routes like a wide receiver, too. His 79 broken tackles on only 195 carries was the third-most in the country last year.

Robinson has had NFL scouts gushing over him since his freshman season and is widely considered one of the most complete ball carriers in the entire country.

Texas has not had an offensive player selected in the first round since 2006. The junior is certainly talented enough to break Texas’ 17-year drought.
