Brian Robinson Jr. RB Alabama Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Has good burst to and through the hole. A patient runner with good vision and burst for the cutback. Squares his shoulders and can knock the defender back onto his heels. Good leg drive and forward lean to gain extra yardage after contact.
  • Well-built with a thick frame and powerful lower body which keeps his legs pumping through contact. Patient behind the line of scrimmage, allowing blocks to create openings, and looks for cutback lanes with accurate vision. Hits the hole hard and runs with power to get the tough yards and a physical attitude.
  • Balanced runner maintains low pad level and has the power to keep moving after initial contact.
  • Fights for extra yardage and is reliable in short-yardage situations.
  • Has good vision to find the hole and get North-South. Gets good initial push and always seems to be falling forward for a positive gain. A hard runner with a workhorse-type back mentality.
Weaknesses
  • Poor acceleration and takes too long to get up to full speed - a slow starter with little burst.
  • Has average speed and is slow to build to top speed with too much stiffness in his movements to make defenders miss. Size indicates he should break through tackles more consistently.
  • Not overly explosive, lacks a special burst. Minimal open-field moves and lacks great vertical speed. Tends to dance too much and indecisive at the line of scrimmage.
  • Lacks a true burst through the hole and elite speed to break away or get to the corner against NFL defenses.
  • A tall, upright runner who lacks great power as a runner. Not a quick-twitch athlete and is forced to gear down too much. Not very loose throughout his frame; looks tight redirecting. Will dance and leave his feet instead of taking what's there.
