The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off one of the best seasons in franchise history, with quarterback Jalen Hurts becoming a superstar as he led the team to the Super Bowl to face Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Even though the Eagles ultimately fell to Mahomes and company in the big game, Philadelphia put up quite a fight against Kansas City and showed that this team might be ready to compete for the foreseeable future with Hurts under center.
However, the Eagles lost some key players during NFL free agency, with one of those players leaving town being running back Miles Sanders, who signed with the Carolina Panthers.
With Sanders gone, the team will have a void in the backfield despite the recent signing of Rashaad Penny.
One player the Eagles might target in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft is running back Bijan Robinson out of the University of Texas, who recently admitted that if he could play with any quarterback in the league right now, it would be Hurts via NFL on ESPN.

Robinson would be an ideal addition to the Eagles for a few different reasons, as he is a promising young player ready to contribute right out of the gate next season and will be playing on a rookie contract, which is a big plus for Philadelphia.
The Eagles will have some competition in the Robinson sweepstakes, with the Los Angeles Chargers and Dallas Cowboys, also being teams that could show interest in the 21-year-old.
However, the Eagles have the edge over those two teams because they have the No. 10 overall pick, but whether they want to take Robinson that high is the real question.NEXT: Bijan Robinson Has 2 Words To Describe His Eagles Visit
