Pick Analysis: Someone had to be throwing the ball to Dez Bryant in college, right? Well that man was Zac Robinson. Robinson struggles at time with his accuracy, but has a lively arm and will compete with Brian Hoyer for a backup spot in New England.

Overview

Robinson is a two-year starter that has shown the ability to lead his team and put points on the scoreboard, but is not a classic pocket passer that can make all the throws needed for the next level. He has adequate arm strength but compensates with a live arm that allows him to get the ball out quickly and does not give defenders a lot of time to get a jump on his throws. He needs work on going through his progressions and looking defenders off and will force too many passes causing more interceptions than he should throw. He is athletic and can extend the pocket or throw the ball on the move but will likely never be more than a second or third quarterback on an NFL team.


Strengths

Robinson is a high-character player. Exhibits impressive mental toughness in terms of preparation off the field and grit on the field. Displays a live arm at times to make difficult throws. Is very accurate in the short passing game. Robinson’s an athletic signal-caller, who can avoid the pass rush, scramble to buy extra time and pick up yardage with his feet.

Weaknesses

Has adequate height but does not possess enough bulk for the next level. Arm strength is good but raw. Throwing mechanics could use some polish as he can take too long to deliver the ball at times. Not very experienced reading coverages in a pro-style system. Will get locked into a single receiver.

Grade

4.4
