Scouting Report: DE Derreck Robinson

To get the lowdown on defensive end Derreck Robinson, who was signed by the Dolphins on Wednesday after spending the last two seasons in San Diego, we checked in with SD Bolt Report's Michael Lombardo, who provided this scouting report.

Writes Lombardo: "Derreck Robinson is both talented and productive. His downfall in San Diego is that his development leveled off before he fully maximized his potential. His best asset as a defensive end is that he bats down a lot of passes at the line of scrimmage. He has good size (6-4, 289) and knows how to push the pocket and disrupt passing lanes.

"Robinson is a gamer who does enough to get by in practice and then handles his business on the field. He is a solid run stuffer and athletic enough to leave on the field on third downs. He won't beat anybody off the line or run around a tackle off the edge, but he never quits on a play and gets the occasional hustle sack.

"He is fairly well conditioned and has the ability to play upwards of 30 snaps per game. He isn't ready to be a starter right now but can be a valuable reserve with the ability to develop into more."
