Atlanta Lands Running Back Bijan Robinson

April 27th, 2023

New Falcons running back Bijan Robinson.

A lot of Bucs fans were yearning for Tampa Bay to draft beastly University of Texas running back Bijan Robinson tonight,

Instead, he went to the Falcons.

Joe sees this is a great thing for now. Why? Because this means the Falcons will be rolling with Desmond Ridder at quarterback. He’s a second-year project and isn’t dropping with talent.

But Joe sees the hated Dixie Chicks working. They kept it very simple. Head coach playcaller Arthur Smith loves to run the ball, and so they drafted the best damn running back on the board — the best in a long time.

Todd Bowles always says his defense only works effectively if the Bucs stop the run. That’s the priority. The Bucs were historically good doing just that in 2019 and 2020, and went downhill from there.

Now they’re probably going to have to be damn good against the run again if they want to beat Atlanta twice. Tyler Allgeier was their rookie sensation last season with 1,000-plus yards and averaging 4.9 yards per carry.

    Atlanta with so many needs picks Bijan, that’s good news for the Bucs.

  2. PA Buc Fan Says:

    I just don’t get it. They had a stud rb. Now they have two I guess. I hate that we didn’t get him. I hate it even more that he is in Atlanta!

    this is what haappens when you get a pick in the top 10 you get a decent player next year we will pick in the top 3 wow it looks sad for us — what is left that we need?

  8. FortMyersDave Says:

    Falcons have so many holes that drafting Bijan just gives them 2 stud RBs. Detroit sure reached for the Bama RB.

  9. Oxycondoms Says:

    People who thought he was too for 19 are going to wish they didnt reverse jinx a stud to atlanta

  10. Oxycondoms Says:

    Too high

  11. RBUC Says:

    People sleeping on Jahmyr Gibbs abilities gonna eat their words this season Detroit is gonna be ELITE this year!! Bucs DESPERATELY needed to get significantly more speed on offense and the Lions just shut the door on that🤔

  12. RBUC Says:

    Bucs need to move back DESPERATELY

  13. Darin Says:

    Smith loves to run it not a surprise. We’ll see if he blueprint is outdated. Bucs shoulda picked up a hooker. He’s gonna be good

  14. Rod Munch Says:

    Trent Richardson was a can’t miss RB, the best prospect in years.

    I think Bijon will be a very good back, but I hope I’m wrong and he’s a bust.

  15. Jerseybuc Says:

    Atlanta needs so much more than a RB yea he’s a stud that’s fine rest of the team is booty. All good

  16. Goatfarmer Says:

    Teams like the Fowlclowns, the Texans, the Lions, the Colts… mating baboons.

    Showing their butts to the world.

    Jason Licht, with the 19th pick, gets one of the best players, top 10 maybe even top 5. Watch and learn.

    We better get back to stopping the run!
