Seahawks target No. 1: Bijan Robinson - Texas Longhorns

The Seahawks taking Bijan Robinson with one of their first-rounders might be a longshot from happening as there are still holes the team has to address first. However, if the Seahawks land the best running back in this year's draft, they will guarantee themselves a great running back combo and be able to use a keep-away approach against their opponents. It is not an ideal approach, but having a great running back room can go along, especially with coach Pete Carroll's running game scheme.

It may be hard to fathom why the Seahawks will double down on running back, but it is not outside of the realm of possibilities. Most reports are stating that the Seahawks will take a defensive end with their 5th overall pick, after that it is wide open. Seattle also holds the 20th overall, and with that pick, they might take a swing in taking Bijan who had 1,580 rushing yards on 258 carries last year. A Walker Robinson combo will be lethal and can greatly help the Seahawks' passing attack.

If the Seahawks land Bijan, he will be welcome addition to this Seahawks team who lost Rashaad Penny and Travis Homer in this year's free agency. Let the world explode when Seattle lands the best running back prospect in this year's rookie draft.
