The drought is over. For the first time since the 2006 NFL Draft, Texas had an offensive player taken in the first round. Bijan Robinson heard his named called Thursday evening as the 8th overall selection in the draft by the Atlanta Falcons.
Robinson rushed for 3410 yards and 33 touchdowns in 3 seasons at Texas. The Arizona native won the Doak Walker Award in 2022 as the top running back in the country. Robinson is not the only Longhorn hoping to hear his name called over the coming days. Fellow RB Roschon Johnson, LB DeMarvion Overshown, DT Keondre Coburn and DL Moro Ojomo have all had their names appear in mock drafts over the last several months.
