Robinson will already have to share the backfield with two other running backs — Tyler Allgeier and Cordarrelle Patterson — which could hinder his early-season rushing totals, but the Falcons run the ball enough to where Robinson should get his fair share of touches.
However, when looking at the number of receptions that Atlanta’s running backs totaled in 2022, ESPN could be overvaluing Robinson’s production as a receiver. Cordarrelle Patterson only got 21 receptions last season, and he was targeted the most among running backs on the team. This was a big drop from the 52 he managed in 2021.
Atlanta only managed 24 pass attempts per game last season, and with other players, like Kyle Pitts and Drake London, in the mix, it’s tough to count on any Falcons player in the first round. Nonetheless, Robinson will surely go early based on his potential alone.
If you draft him, just make sure to have patience early in the season.
