Here are the latest NFL Draft rumors involving key prospects such as Anthony Richardson and Bijan Robinson, as well as next year’s potential No. 1 pick Caleb Williams.
The NFL Draft will be here before you know it, but we have some rumors to sort through first.
Two weekends from now, the NFL world will collide in Kansas City for one of the greatest events the league puts on annually. All 32 teams will try to get better by picking the best players possible.
However, only a few have a chance to be franchise-altering. Whether it be a star running back like Bijan Robinson or a project quarterback like Anthony Richardson, everyone’s eyes will be on this.
Even with this year’s draft on the imminent horizon, there are prospects worth watching for 2024.
NFL Draft rumors: Dalvin Cook news may hint at Bijan Robinson’s draft floor
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported on Saturday afternoon that the Minnesota Vikings could cut star running back Dalvin Cook before the start of the upcoming draft.
Cook has spent his entire NFL career in Minnesota after starring collegiately at Florida State. While they have paid him big money already, Cook has had some injuries in his career. This may mean Bijan Robinson could replace him.
Robinson will be the first running back taken in the 2023 NFL Draft, possibly inside of the top 10. He may be the pick by the Philadelphia Eagles at No. 10, but Robinson could come off the board a few picks earlier. One team that a lot of people are drawing him to are the Atlanta Falcons picking at No. 8. Even if they have a second-year stud in Tyler Allgeier, Robinson is a generational talent.
What Fowler’s report signifies more than anything is if Minnesota moves on from Cook, Robinson is not making it past the Vikings at No. 23. Frankly, he is coming off the board well before then, so if the Vikings want to make him their new bell-cow back in the wake of cutting Cook, then Minnesota will need to trade up into at least the mid-teens. Robinson feels like a top-16 pick lock.
Barring injuries, there is next to no bust potential for Robinson coming out of Texas in the NFL.
