Evaluation notes

Robinson is a tough, physical offensive lineman who likely best fits a guard position at the next level. Primarily played right tackle during his final three seasons in high school. Tenacious run-game mauler who locks on and finishes blocks with vigor. Powerful prospect who thrives in the run game, but also wins vast majority of matchups in pass protection.

Robinson can improve hand technique and footwork, but that's common for young prospects. He's a high-major offensive lineman prospect who could potentially be position-versatile at the next level, though either guard spot appears best-suited to his frame and skill set. - Gabe Brooks
