Overview

Also played basketball as a Michigan prep. As a true freshman in 2011, saw very limited action in 11 games and caught three balls for 29 yards (9.7-yard average) and no touchdowns. Started all 12 games in 2012 and produced 77 catches for 1,013 yards (13.2) and 11 touchdowns. Was the Nittany Lions' leading receiver for the second straight year in 2013, when he started 11 of 12 games and totaled 97 catches for 1,432 yards (14.8) and six touchdowns. Non-start was season opener against Syracuse when PSU opened with three tight ends. First player since at least 1985 to lead the Big Ten in receptions and receiving yardage in consecutive seasons.

Analysis

Strengths

Excellent size. Good line release -- defeats press. Sinks his hips, breaks off sharply and creates separation. Works back to the ball. Climbs the ladder — has elevation and body control to contort and make plays in the air. Turns short throws into chunk plays -- gets upfield quickly and shows shiftiness, vision and run strength. Executed a full route tree in a pro-style offense. Highly productive -- totaled 174-2,445-17 (14.0) in last two seasons. Will be a 21-year-old rookie. Recorded a 39-inch vertical jump.

Weaknesses

Lacks elite top-end speed -- needs double moves to separate vertically and gets tracked down from behind. Occasionally tracking and leap timing are off. Is more confident in his hands outside the numbers or in the air than he is over the middle. Traps throws against his body and double-catches some. Tends to cradle throws or go down to the ground. Swings the ball loosely as a runner. Can improve physicality and sustain as a blocker.

Draft Projection

Rounds 2-3

Bottom Line

The Big Ten's leading receiver the last two seasons, Robinson is a big, fluid, outside receiver with a nice combination of "above-the-rim" prowess and run-after-catch ability. Offers possession skills, playmaking ability and red-zone utility to develop into a solid No. 2 option.
