Better moving laterally than playing downhill or through OL

Player Comparison:           Clint Session

 Round Projection:               late 4th to mid 5th


Like Clint Session, Robinson utilizes great speed and is able to cover lots of ground.  He is sound in coverage and stopping runs off tackle and sweeps.  He gets engulfed when run at and does not attack the line of scrimmage enough as evident from his lack of tackles for loss.  Still he does have tools to work with and can be an effective starter if teams are patient with him and utilize him correctly.  4-3 Scheme teams that value speed such as Colts, Titans, Seahawks, Raiders, Eagles, Vikings, and Saints will look in middle rounds for him.

 NFLmocks preaseason bio

Obviously Robinson has excellent size for a linebacker prospect, and he has been extremely productive in his first three seasons as a Longhorn linebacker. 2nd team All Big 12 selection last year after he led the Longhorns with 113 tackles, eight tackles for loss, two sacks, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, two passes broken up, a fumble forced, and a defensive touchdown. He has also proven to be one of the team’s top special teams players. Honorable mention All Big 12 performer as a sophomore in 2009 when he had 74 tackles, 1.5 sacks, five tackles for loss, and four passes broken up. Excellent length and good quickness off the snap. Definitely makes a lot of tackles, but sometimes allows the play to come to him five, six, seven yards down the field rather than attack it at the line of scrimmage. Very good student who is active in the community and at the local church. Needs to take better angles rather than relying on his natural athleticism to make plays. Definitely capable of the big hit.
