Evaluation notes

Jaylon Robinson is an athletic offensive playmaker who can line up in the slot or the backfield. He will likely fit best as a slot receiver in college, where he'll also be a return option, potentially early in his career. He's also the type of player who can be used in gadget situations.

Robinson possesses excellent speed and outstanding lateral agility. He's been laser-timed at 4.54 in the 40 and a blistering 3.88 in the shuttle. He also owns a vertical leap of 34.4 inches.

Robinson provides big-play ability any time he touches the ball and that helps compensate for his lack of size. He will need to add bulk in college to stand up to bigger defensive backs and aid as he improves as a blocker.

Overall athleticism and playmaking ability make Robinson a sometimes electric offensive weapon who could find himself on the field early on special teams. Robinson is a Power Five-caliber prospect. - Gabe Brooks
