The last time a Texas Longhorns running back was selected in the annual NFL Draft was 2017, when the Houston Texans selected D’Onta Foreman in the third round. And while Foreman has gone on to flame out, only to resurrect his career again, and then again, Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson will almost undoubtedly break Texas’ six-year slump.

After all, it’s Texas. It’s where Ricky Williams and Cedric Benson took tread off their tires.
