Bijan Robinson is one of the most highly-touted running backs in recent memory.
Throughout the pre-draft process, his athleticism, shiftiness, and general football IQ have been highlighted.
Because of his “can’t miss” profile, many believe that Robinson could be a top-ten pick in this year’s NFL Draft.
Robinson has been rumored to many teams, including the Chicago Bears.
When the Bears’ assistant general manager, Ian Cunningham, was recently asked about using top-ten capital on a running back, he responded with, “Yeah, I think it’s worth it,” via Zack Pearson.

This is a significant comment, given the Bears’ draft position at No. 9 overall.
Robinson has been said to be interested in the Philadelphia Eagles, who have the 10th pick.
Given the Bears’ draft position, paired with the fact that they have recently cut ties with David Montgomery, this could be the perfect storm.
The Bears have been one of the most active teams during the offseason, and have added multiple players to their roster.
Now that Aaron Rodgers is officially out of the division, this could be their chance to pounce on the NFC North.
The Bears haven’t made the playoffs since 2020, and have only won the NFC North twice since 2010.
Adding an explosive player like Robinson could go a long way in their offense, especially since he will be paired with Justin Fields.
With the draft just around the corner, fans of the Bears won’t have to wait long to find out the newest addition to the team’s roster.NEXT: Fans React To Bears' Twitter Video After Aaron Rodgers Trade
