    The entire NFC South needs broken tackles and YAC. Atlanta and Carolina pick too early for a RB, so if Bijan makes it to #19 (sans trades), then I think Tampa gets him. The Buccaneers were also last in the entire league in rushing TDs, rushing 1st downs, and rush yards before contact. With Brady leaving (we assume), they'll need to run and improve from Fournette and whoever else they got.

    Buffalo would be a great landing spot for him. I REALLY hope he doesn't end up in Arizona, Houston, or Indianapolis. Some outlier locations (which would probably require a few trades) that might serve him well in the long run would be Seattle, New England, or Denver.

    The Bills would simply be unbelievable. Also, since he skill set reminds me of Barry Sanders, I have a feeling that the Lions could be in the mix. Based on the projections, he should go to a pretty good team.

    My early prediction:

    Seahawks (Carroll likes Texas players)

    It’d be surprising to me the Bills take him after drafting Cook early last year. They haven’t prioritized the run game pitside of Allen. Seahawks got Walker. The Lions need to figure out Williams/Swift. The Chargers with Ekeler.

    Maybe the Rams. Chiefs possibly. It may just be whoever is wowed by him, which may surprise people.

    I would be pleased he is drafted by anyone not named CLEVELAND OR DETROIT would be #2 to that.

    Imagine Bijan's dilemma, particularly after yesterday -

    Buffalo or Orange County

    LAX/John Wayne vs an airport that requires 3-4 transfers to get anywhere worth going

    Whiteouts vs Surf's up

    If true, I hope Bijan likes playing in January but not February.

    Bijan going to any team in the 20's is going to be a steal for that team. He probably falls to there because of how teams now value RB's but he is a Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel type that will absolutely make some OC's scheme incredibly dynamic.

    I see him as some kind of amalgamation between Barkley and Chubb. Very similar in size and on par the best things that both of them can do (run, catch, block).

    Buffalo climate is HORRIBLE, but at least they have good team to potentially be a part of...

    The bills and bucs both have really bad OLs. I hope he lands in a better spot that fits him

    Maybe buff and tb make moves to get better linemen in the spring

    Bijan's very sticky hands are going to separate him from most RBs in the NFL.

    For me this would be perfect. I might actually go to a game at SoFi.

    Wouldn't be bad at all for Bijan - think what he could do behind an OL that acan block like the Iggles.

    Whoever gets Bijan wins. He will be a great pro and a Walter Payton candidate each year.

    The word has been that the NFL doesn’t place a high value on RBs these days, and that teams can get a good one later in R1, or after. While that has been true recently, I’ll be surprised if Bijan lasts past R1-15. I believe many teams understand that he is an unusual talent with high character, and someone trading up to get him also would not surprise me.

    Cowboys could use him...Elliott seems quite unproductive of late and the injury to the replacement workhorse (Pollard) is a concern.

    However, Dallas certainly has other pressing needs...

    I wouldn't wish the Buffalo weather upon anyone, not even if they had played for aggy.

    I don't disagree at all, & for the $ that would be good. However unless a quality team were to trade up to get him he would get a better team if drafted later in the round.

    Hopefully Bijan will not buy a white Bronco.

    Is that a back alley way of saying "Hope he doesn't stab anybody to death"?

    Well, we hope he doesn't adopt a slashing style...
