Robinson’s athleticism, burst and twitch makes him one of the higher ceiling pass rushers in the class. His quick first step and footwork with his pass-rush moves can at times leave bigger and less agile offensive linemen grabbing at air. When lined up against athletic offensive linemen who can match his footwork and stay patient with his variety of moves, Robinson can sometimes be limited. As a result, he can be taken out of games and suffer from a lack of production.

OVERVIEW: Robinson's flash off the edge for the Nittany Lions reminded the Happy Valley faithful of Micah Parsons during his time at Penn State, and while Robinson might be a little less pro-ready than the Cowboys' three-time All-Pro was in 2021, his potential is just as high with his traits and pass-rush bag. After transferring from Maryland following a disruptive freshman season, Robinson accounted for 17.5 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks in two seasons for the Nittany Lions.

COMPARISON: Dante Fowler Jr.
