OVERVIEW
Robinson was a three-year starter with good ball skills and athletic ability. He has prototypical size and speed.

STRENGTHS
Robinson has displayed superb zone skills. Aside from length, where he is only average, he has all the traits sought after in a zone corner. Not as polished in man, but he can run with receivers in the open field and will likely run in the 4.4 range at the combine. A reliable tackler in run support.

WEAKNESSES
Robinson struggled at times playing man coverage. He will hesitate at times when diagnosing throws or trying to read his man's hips, and will guess on jumping routes which could be a risk at the next level. Struggles to make plays in run support after shedding his man, and will need to be more assertive in that area of his game.
