Scouting Report
A three-year starter at inside linebacker at Texas, Robinson will likely be asked to move to the outside to make an NFL roster. Robinson's two biggest strengths are his speed and his ability to quickly read plays. He has a quick first step at the snap and is able to get himself in position to make a stop. He moves well laterally and can chase down ball carriers when plays move away from him. While he possesses excellent quickness and athleticism, Robinson isn't an overly physical player. He rarely explodes into ball carriers and sometimes allows runners to drag him for a few extra yards. He also struggles to shed blocks and has very few moves to get around offensive linemen when blitzing the quarterback. In 51 career games at Texas, he finished with 5 1/2 sacks and 25 tackles for loss. He displayed great strength at the NFL combine with 27 reps in the bench press - tied for sixth-best among linebackers - but must transfer that muscle to the football field. Robinson did a lot of things well at Texas, where he finished with 317 career tackles but wasn't overly spectacular in any one area. Many scouts, however, believe he has enough talent to make an NFL team and will likely be selected in one of the middle rounds.
