RB. Arizona Cardinals. Bijan Robinson. 15. player. 32.

The Arizona Cardinals are a team that is very hard to diagnose through the first four games of the season, as they look very good at times, and lost at others. Kyler Murray is a tremendous young quarterback, but he needs more weapons, especially at the running back spot.

When it comes to drafting in the NFL, running backs do not usually go in the first round, but Bijan Robinson is good enough to do just that. He is a rare blend of size and speed and could be a 1,000-yard rusher right out of the gate, giving Murray another weapon to help him in his development.

16. player. 50. . S. Detroit Lions. Antonio Johnson

The Los Angeles Rams traded for Matthew Stafford, and in return, the Detroit Lions got a host of draft picks and Jared Goff. With pick No. 16, the Lions will have two picks in the first half of the first round, and they go defense after selecting a future franchise quarterback early on.

One look at the Lions is to see that they have some serious issues on defense, and need some key help in the secondary. Antonio Johnson should be the first safety off the board in 2023, and with the Lions, he would be an instant starter, and someone to fill their shortcomings in the defensive backfield.
