Draft Analysis:

If the offseason is any indication, the Chiefs are looking to graduate from their dink-and-dunk offense they sported last year. Robinson is the latest indicator, as he provides Alex Smith with a speedy field-stretcher. There's plenty of untapped potential here. --Mark Dulgerian

Overview

Despite Robinson's athletic prowess, his ability to take advantage of those gifts, or to stay out of trouble, short-circuited his career in Gainesville. He was suspended four times with the Gators (twice in 2013), including once late in the 2015 season, to go along with two benchings in his final year on campus. The nephew of former South Carolina and NFL receiver Marcus Robinson, Demarcus was a major recruiting coup for the Gators as an all-state pick from Georgia. He played in only seven games as a freshman, though, due to two suspensions (5-23 receiving). Robinson took a step forward as a sophomore, catching 53 passes for 810 yards and seven touchdowns. His statistics dropped in 2015, however, as he played 13 games but could only manage 522 yards and two scores on 48 receptions as the Gators' offense struggled all season long.

Analysis

Strengths

Talent jumps off the tape early in the session. Electric vertical talent that can make cornerbacks re­think their coverage plans. Has shake at the line of scrimmage to free himself against press coverage and has adequate ball tracking skills. Graceful, flexible athlete with instant turbo acceleration. Has ability to hit the home run after the catch. Races off the line and forced cornerbacks into retreat opening easy comeback catches. Has talent and ability to make a living outside or from the slot.

Weaknesses

Routes can be lazy at times. Will need to improve with selling fakes at break point of his routes as a pro. Too reliant on athleticism and speed over improvement of skill level. Hands are a concern with 11 drops to 106 catches at Florida. Plays smaller than his listed size. Suspended four times while at Florida. Scouts call him immature and selfish.

Draft Projection

Rounds 6 or 7

Sources Tell Us

"I think he's going to struggle off of press, and he didn't make big plays that were there for him sometimes. He's way faster on tape than in timing. He got suspended four times. I'm too old for that (expletive). If you get suspended that much, you are crying out to teams that you won't ever change." -- NFC wide receivers coach

Bottom Line

Immensely talented with elite combination of straight-­line speed and quick­-twitch athleticism. Robinson flashes game­-breaking potential as a deep ball threat and after the catch, but was suspended by two different coaches over a three-year period. While Robinson is likely to test off the charts and has the talent to be a top four receiver in this draft, it is hard to imagine his draft slot equaling his talent due to his character concerns.
