Sometimes a player can be drafted into what seems to the watching world to be a perfect landing spot, where a marriage of skill set and opportunity collide in gloriously serendipitous circumstances.

All the while happily thanking the footballing gods that allowed a specific team to draft the specific player.

Is that the absolute best-case scenario, and is it really a profile worth chasing?

Bijan Robinson came into the NFL heralded as the best running back prospect since Saquon Barkley. His landing with the Atlanta Falcons, and Arthur Smith’s skills in utilizing the ground game in his offense, made mouths water at the prospect of what his first season in the league could be like. It’s fair to say that the early returns were . . . underwhelming. But…...
