LB KEENAN ROBINSON – TEXAS – 6-3, 242
3-year starter at OLB. Big time “What If?” player. Has a good frame. Has good athletic ability. Has good football skills. Never put that all together, but what if he did? You wonder how good he could be. Watch the OU game from 2010. Robinson had 19 total tackles (9 solo). He had 1.5 TFLs. He played the run well. He was physical and played with attitude. He showed good range and was all over the field that day. Seems like a player that must be motivated to be at his best. Has big time potential, but needs coaches/teammates to push the right buttons.
At his best, Robinson is an ideal SAM. He is big/strong enough to fight off blocks. He’s agile enough to move well in traffic and get to the ball. He has the speed to make plays in the open field. Has some pop when he hits. His tackling can be sloppy.
Played like an ILB at Texas. Finished his career with 5 sacks, 2 INTs, 276 total tackles, 21 TFLs, and 3 FFs. Went to the Senior Bowl and played SAM. Looked good to very good. Was that a tease or is he ready to finally live up to his potential? Should go in the 4th round.
