Overview

Usually it's Georgia Tech producing a big-bodied receiver with deep-ball skills out of an option attack. The Academy's got the hot pass-catcher this season, however, with Robinette getting a lot of notice from scouts. He led the Falcons in receiving yards in his first season on campus (16-291, three TD), although he didn't start any games. Robinette received honorable mention All-Mountain West notice in both his sophomore (43-806, four TD) and junior (26-641, five TD) seasons. He averaged 27.4 yards per catch in 2016, which led the nation. Robinette was named first-team All-Mountain West after the season (35-959, six TD).

Analysis

Strengths

Outstanding NFL size with long arms and monster hands. Plays grown man football down the field. Able to leap and rise above the masses to pull down the deep ball. Physical and unfazed by contact. Plays with plus balance and body control when attacking the football. Has a knack for late separation down the field and plays with sharpened focus when ball is in the air. Showed off quick shake press release at Shrine practices. Has the raw size and tools that teams will covet.

Weaknesses

Missed out on catches outside his frame. Yards per catch totals bolstered by open opportunities in Air Force play-action game. Too tall into his routes robbing him of early acceleration. Overly-exaggerated head fakes into his brakes and stems don't fool anyone. Route-running is very raw and will need time to be developed. Needs to play faster when setting up routes underneath. Pattern matchers could eat him up early on. Can be slow to get head around and find the football. Doesn't go looking for contact as run blocker.

Bottom Line

Robinette has impressive size and vertical ball skills, but his route-running is extremely raw due to the limitations of Air Force's option-based attack. Like others before him from similar offenses, Robinette is a traits-based prospect with a high ceiling, but he could need a redshirt year to become comfortable with the route requirements of a pro-style attack.
