I present to you all the worst take of all time from Anand Nanduri of Player Profiler: “Even if Bijan Robinson is a HOFer, this is still a bad pick.”
Say it with us:
Drafting an RB at the 1.08 is a bad idea. pic.twitter.com/zU48dGpdFe

Yes, you read that correctly. This guy hates taking running backs so early that he’s willing to die on one of the weirdest hills I have ever seen.
“Taking a Hall of Fame running back is worse than taking an average cornerback or defensive lineman” is the kind of thinking Mr. Nanduri is promoting. That is delusional, even outside the Bijan Robinson argument.
A Hall of Famer at a non-premium position will always be more valuable than a premium position player not headed for the Hall of Fame.
I can guarantee if an NFL franchise knew a prospect was a sure-fire Hall of Famer they would snatch him up, regardless of the position. I am a hot take spewing machine sometimes, but this is crossing the line.
Drafting a running back in the top 10 might not be the best strategy for winning Super Bowls, but to say it would be a bad pick regardless of Robinson’s career should revoke your privileges to comment on the NFL.
Imagine trying to convince Bill Belichick, Mike Tomlin, Andy Reid, or any other Hall of Fame coach of this take. They would look at you like you have three heads.
Unfortunately, the more wild your takes are nowadays, the more attention you receive. I am playing right into Anand Nanduri’s hands, but I don’t care. He deserves to be ridiculed for this egregious take.
The Falcons will be overjoyed with their decision to take Bijan Robinson if his story ends in Canton.
