Minnesota Vikings Select Newberry LB Edmond Robinson

robinson-bio-card.jpg

STRENGTHS

Freakishly long with a frame that could easily add much more weight and muscle. Played over tight end against run teams, matched up on slot receivers and even rotated back to safety on a couple of snaps. Good initial quickness and ability to engulf his targets when tackling. Good pursuit laterally.

WEAKNESSES

Looks like a praying mantis on tape -- almost all legs. Excelled but didn't dominate against lower level of competition. Play strength is nowhere near ready as a linebacker prospect. Needs weight work and mass and needs to learn to use his length to keep blockers off of him.

DRAFT PROJECTION

Undrafted

BOTTOM LINE

Tall, lanky developmental prospect that must fill out and gain substantially more play strength to be able to handle the linebacker position. His length and ability to move in space is a little bit intriguing, though.
