CB - NYG
Expert NoteView More Notes
Robinson's a long and physical corner that has the length to thrive in a Cover 3 scheme or come down and press at the LOS against bigger receivers. He's able to stick with bigger and stiffer receivers, but struggled against Calvin Austin from Memphis. The shiftier, smaller, and quicker receivers might give him problems in the NFL. Good zone recognition ability and was asked to play zone frequently at UCF. Able to pick up switching receivers into his zone well, but can be a bit late in his recognition of where the play is going. Will need to improve in this area if he's going to be in a heavy zone scheme. Decent change of direction ability. Tends to plant his feet in press at the line of scrimmage and wait for the receiver to declare where they're going. This means that he has to often flip his hips, which is not a huge strength, and play catch-up. Needs to have more active feet at the line of scrimmage to put him in a better position or just completely play off the majority of the time. Able to make plays on the ball while it's in the air, but didn't make any splash plays in this department in the games that I watched. Solid in run support and willing to step in and make a tackle. Good wrap up ability. Good long speed, but lacks elite agility on tape. Can often get caught chasing smaller and shiftier receivers. Relies more on physicality than anything else, which will be good against the bigger receivers in the NFL, but his lack of flexibility and overall burst could leave him trailing smaller receiving weapons. Overall, Robinson's a good fit for Cover 3 defenses that can be a presence against bigger receivers. He is far from being a lockdown corner in the NFL though. Most likely a Day 2 pick.
