Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Robinson is at his best when being used as a run defender on early downs. He shows the hand heaviness to stun OL with the violence to clear his hips and disengage quickly. His length is best utilized out of a neutral stance where he can strike and control the block. He shows average twitch and get off when rushing around the edge. His pass rush moves consist of one arm stabs combined with clubs/rips. He can end of heavy on tackles and lose sight of turning the corner. His pass rush ability is overall average but his contact balance and motor when sticking inside is above the line. He is most disruptive when knifing gaps on twists and loops.
