Running back is a massive need for the Miami Dolphins, and Brian Robinson could be a decent option for the team if they want a solid third or fourth-round draft choice, although Robinson’s draft stock could be on the rise.
Fans, including myself, would love to see the team take one of Iowa State’s Breece Hall, Michigan State’s Kenneth Walker, who was the choice in my latest mock draft, or Texas A&M’s Isaiah Spiller. If the team finds themselves missing out on any of these three, as they missed on the top two of last season’s draft, they should not give up on taking a running back.
With the Miami Dolphins unable to make the NFL playoffs, it is officially mock draft season as all eyes point towards the 2022 NFL Draft and offseason.
Robinson is a fifth-year senior who did not start a game for the Crimson Tide until this season, where he’s started all but one game. After an impressive performance against Cincinnati in the Cotton Bowl with 204 rushing yards off 26 carries, it’s likely to see his stock shoot up.
On the season, Robinson put together 1,275 rushing yards with 14 touchdowns off 249 rushing attempts. He’s likely going to be stifled by an impressive Georgia run defense, one that held him to 55 yards during the SEC Championship game, but if he can contribute in other ways, it’ll help his stock.
To say Miami needs running back help is an understatement. Behind the offensive line, the team has seen little production from their backs having only one game this year with a 100-yard rusher.
The team will need to try something, whether that’s in free agency, the draft, or trading for one. Robinson would be a solid late-round option that brings plenty of experience.
