Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: The 49ers pick up a versatile safety in Robinson. He shows outstanding instincts and awareness and displays the requisite toughness to play in the middle despite his slender frame.

  • 5'10" Height
  • 31 1/2" Arm Length
  • 195LBS. Weight
  • 9 3/4" Hands


Robinson has been a reliable three-year starter for Michigan State who really came on strong in his senior year. He was the leader for a highly athletic and productive defensive backfield. He is a solid all-around player who has good change of direction to cover players deep and can also come up physically to make plays in run support. He has fourth- or fifth-round value.



Robinson can cover well and mirrors tight ends well in-phase. He trusts his footwork and makes good plays once diagnosing them. He has good hips to turn and run with wideouts and the speed to stay with them. He has the body control to turn when running with a wideout and make an athletic play on the ball. Trent is good in run support. He is aggressive in all phases.


Robinson can misread plays at times and although physical, will fall off tackles occasionally. If working in the box, bigger linemen can get their hands on him and engulf. He has had a history of injuries at Michigan State and will need to show durability.
