Brian Robinson Jr. - Commanders RB

There is an infectious enthusiasm that's hard not to love where Brian Robinson Jr. is concerned. After everything the running back endured last summer, he takes absolutely nothing for granted and approaches every session with boundless energy that rubs off on those around him.

The former Alabama star looks much more defined physically and seems to have lost weight in readiness for the new campaign. This only enhances the notion that Robinson could become an NFL superstar with the right growth under Eric Bieniemy's expert guidance this offseason.

Robinson looked sharp throughout OTAs. He was confident during drills and provided a nice outlet for Sam Howell on passing downs - something he's not really offered as part of Washington's offense before on a consistent basis.

With Bieniemy being a former running back himself, this is a chance for Robinson to soak up information, learn what it takes to succeed at the very top and lean on of the NFL's most revered offensive minds. An opportunity the player would be wise not to waste.

All signs point to a big year from Robinson in 2023. And he's off to an encouraging start.
