Scouting Report: Strengths
- He’s patient in the backfield, willing to wait out his blocking and not panicking, and Robinson consistently spots cutback lanes and takes advantage.
- An instinctive runner, he has a knack for setting up defenders and making people miss in space. He’s at his best in space and on the perimeter, where he shows the balance and acceleration, plus pure speed, to make a move and then take off.
- A smooth, loose athlete with very good speed,he is a weapon in space.
- Robinson moves at a different speed than most of the players on the field. His initial burst and acceleration once the ball is in his hands are special.
- He flips upfield naturally in the screen game. He could probably get by as a slot receiver.
- He brings a nice blend of power and passing game skills. Robinson has a compact build and a naturally low center of gravity, and he runs with excellent balance through traffic, allowing him to squeeze through for yardage.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Robinson really isn’t a guy who will create a lot of separation.
- Size will be a detriment between the tackles at the next level. Lacks the strength to push the pile or break off NFL linebacker tackles inside. Can be brought down or knocked back by strong arm tackles. Can be steamrolled by NFL defensive ends or leapt in a single bound by most pass rushers if Robinson attempts to chip block.
- As a runner, he too often looks to bounce outside and make the big play, rather than pick his way through traffic.
