The Philadelphia Eagles made a surprising move during the offseason by not re-signing Miles Sanders.
Sanders was one of their most significant contributors on offense, spearheading their run game.
However, the Eagles, like many teams in the NFL, decided to allocate their dollars elsewhere, not extending Sanders to a long-term deal.
Even though the Eagles didn’t sign Sanders, they are now in need of a new running back.
Bijan Robinson, former Texas running back, is widely regarded as the best at the position in this upcoming draft class.
Robinson recently posted a photo from an airplane, confirming that he has recently met with the Eagles.
This is pretty huge. Often the top RBs don't take many pre-draft visits. Very interesting for the Eagles to use one of their 30 visits on him https://t.co/1jHCkVsFts

Last season, Robinson had 1,580 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns, adding 19 receptions and two receiving touchdowns.
If the Eagles are genuinely interested in Robinson, they will be adding an impressive prospect to their roster, replacing Sanders.
With Jalen Hurts under center, the Eagles have established an impressive offense, as they were one of the league’s best in 2022.
Losing Sanders is a detriment to the Eagles’ offense, and he will be severely missed within the organization.
However, adding a player like Robinson could be a great solution, especially since he will be on his rookie contract.
Pending a trade, the Eagles currently hold the 10th and 30th overall picks in the upcoming draft.
They are in a prime position to draft Robinson, as many teams that are currently ahead of them are slated to either select a quarterback or a defensive player.
