Robinson plays a bit high at times and even on some of his best highlight type of plays he is coming out of his stance and standing up, but that does not slow him from making plays and getting after the quarterback, which only speaks to his upside as a potential prospect at the next level. He will get coached up with techniques at the defensive end position and could be a real monster. He is very strong and can shed offensive linemen. When he gets going downhill, he can close quickly. Having good hips allows him to get around the corner.
