Washington Commanders RBs Brian Robinson Jr. was chosen in the 2022 NFL Draft with an eye on pairing him with Antonio Gibson in the same kind of way head coach Ron Rivera utilized DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart with the Carolina Panthers from 2011-14, according to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan.
Huddle Up: Robinson is a pure power running back, so he would take on the Stewart role if this plan comes to fruition. In roughly one year, it also appears as if Rivera has shifted from using Gibson like Christian McCaffrey to using him more like what he did with his running backs for most of his time with the Panthers. The problem for both players is that J.D. McKissic will still be the primary option on passing downs. What it means is that Robinson should be treated more like a high-end handcuff and Gibson more as a middling RB2.

Huddle Up: Robinson doesn't have a obvious path to a sizeable role as a rookie, but he would become a worthwhile addition if Antonio Gibson were to miss time.
