The final day of the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis focused on the offensive linemen and running backs, and a whole slew of potential NFL prospects showcased their abilities.

But most people were focused on one man in particular: Texas running back Bijan Robinson, one of the top prospects in this draft.

He did not disappoint, running a 4.46-second 40-yard dash, a 1.52-second 10-second split, a 37-inch vertical and a 10’4″ broad jump.

“I thought it was a pretty good day,” the man of the moment told the NFL Network. “It’s just a blessing to be out here with all these great people and showcase my skills, whether it’s from fitness drills to [the 40-yard dash] positional drills, it was just a fun day.”

NFL Twitter agreed with his assessment:

Robinson was always a likely first-round pick after two straight 1,000-yard seasons, including an epic 1,580-yard, 18-touchdown 2022 campaign. But he could that he would be included in the top 10 because he tested well, even at a time when positional value shifted from drafting running backs early.

It’s that good.

Some of the other running backs in action have fully blazed their 40 hours, however, including Texas A&M speedster Devon Achane and Alabama running back Jahmyr Gibbs, widely considered the No. 1 pick. 2 at the position in this draft class behind Robinson.

Offensive linemen aren’t going to flash as much as players at the skill level at something similar, so they weren’t moving the needle as much in general as the running backs.

Blake Freeland turned heads with his test, however:
