Cowboys Loading Up At CB With Tulsa's Robinson


A full breakdown of the Cowboys' fourth-round draft pick (No. 123 overall) Saturday:

  • Name: Reggie Robinson II
  • Position: Cornerback
  • College: Tulsa
  • Height/Weight: 6-1/205

The Rundown: Robinson is from Cleburne, Texas, about 50 miles outside Dallas, and likely would have been a "Dallas Day" participant if the Cowboys' annual local pre-draft event wasn't cancelled due to the nation's COVID-19 crisis. Robinson started games at cornerback all four years at Tulsa, posting a career-best four interceptions as a senior last year. His four picks and 17 pass breakups led the AAC, making him a first-team all-conference pick. Like the Cowboys' second-round pick Trevon Diggs, Robinson has good size to match up with larger receivers in the league.

How He Fits In: The Cowboys are loading up at cornerback with Byron Jones (Dolphins) no longer on the roster and four current veterans (Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis, C.J. Goodwin and Maurice Canady) entering the final year of their deals. Diggs and Robinson immediately add competition at a position that has some question marks in terms of roster depth past 2020. They'll get to work with new secondary coach Al Harris, who played for head coach Mike McCarthy in Green Bay. Robinson also had four blocked kicks at Tulsa and could develop into a core special teams contributor for new coordinator John Fassel.

Next Cowboys Pick: 5th Round (164th overall)
