The Philadelphia Eagles have been one of the most consistent sides in the NFL in recent years, and like most of the young talents, Bijan Robinson also likes to play for a champion team.
The Eagles became the NFC champions last season, but unfortunately, they could not triumph over the Kansas City Chiefs and lost the Super Bowl. However, their present condition in the draft pick standings is helping them build a title-contending team for next season.
However, on the other hand, Bijan seems to be a fan and is eager to play in Philadelphia, as he recently expressed his desire and preference in an interview.
What did Bijan Robinson say?
The 21-year-old is one of the hot prospects in this season’s draft, but the Eagles are facing tough luck to acquire him as they have only two first-round picks and the overall 10th pick is their best chip so far.
If it were up to the rookie’s hand, the running back would surely pick the Eagles without any hesitation, as he expressed his desire to play alongside his favorite quarterback, Jalen Hurts. On ESPN’s NFL Live, he made the statement and the fans are starting to build their hopes.

Robinson played for the Texas Longhorn football team for three years at the college level and showed his talent on the 100-yard pitch. He scored 33 rushing touchdowns, 3,410 yards rushing, and eight receiving touchdowns for the Longhorns. His last year’s performance allowed him to be awarded the Doak Walker Award.
