Reggie Robinson, Tulsa

Reggie Robinson is one of my favorite late-round corners in this class. Robinson stands at 6’1 and just over 200 lbs. He has great size and athleticism which is perfect for an outside cornerback.

At the combine, Robinson finished inside the top ten for all defensive backs in the 40-yard dash, bench press reps and the broad jump. His athleticism and length will be a problem for any wide receiver he is up against.

During his senior year at Tulsa, Robinson finished with 13 pass breakups which was tied for tenth in the FBS, and came away with three interceptions. Robinson has great ball skills and awareness and has the size to compete for 50/50 balls.

While there is a lot to like about Robinson, he does need to work on a few things in order to succeed at the next level. He uses his hands a ton, which could result in penalties and cost the team. His footwork can be sloppy at times and he needs to improve his press coverage. He has struggled to mirror receivers and can allow them to gain separation at the line of scrimmage. With better route runners in the NFL, Robinson will need to improve these areas of his game.

Robinson has all the physical traits that you could want in an outside corner. He mainly just needs to work on his technique in order to round out his game. With the need for cornerback growing after each pick, Robinson could be one of the selections on day three.
