1. Eagles take Bijan Robinson at No. 10 overall

Cowboys fans have been dreading this scenario for months. There's seemingly no better fit for Robinson than Philadelphia, and general manager Howie Roseman is smart enough to know the former Longhorn is the final piece to the Eagles' offensive puzzle.

In case you forgot how lethal Jalen Hurts is with his legs, he totaled 760 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns (!) on 4.6 yards per attempt last year. He also rushed for 67 first downs, which speaks to the efficiency of Philly's run-pass-option and their offensive line's fortitude in short-yardage situations.

Add Bijan Robinson to the mix and the Eagles' rushing offense becomes that much more difficult to neutralize. If Robinson was born in a different generation -- say five or six years ago -- he'd be a no-brainer top-five selection. With RBs value decreasing with each passing year, he could fall outisde the top 15.

Or maybe, just maybe, the Eagles, who can afford a luxury pick more than any other team slotted in the top 10, end Robinson's slide before it begins -- thereby adding a top five player in the class to an already-potent offense and ending Jerry Jones' dream of keeping Robinson in Texas.
