Reggie Robinson 2020 NFL Draft Profile
Reggie Robinson comes from an athletic football family and fit every part of that role while at Tulsa. He notched four field goal blocks during his time and started contributing during his redshirt freshman season. He missed part of his junior season due to injury but would achieve first team All-American Athletic Conference honors in 2019.
Robinson was never afraid to make a tackle, landing 37 in his senior year while finding two fumbles for recoveries. Impact play after impact play has landed Robinson in high regard in the AAC and should help him find a solid position in the NFL. But there are still fundamental problems that he needs to solve to become a consistently contributing cornerback in the NFL, and those problems may not be easily solved. But there is a specific NFL team for his skill set, and it will be up to scouts and coaches to find that fit.
– Size to fit into an outside cornerback position
– Possesses a nose for figuring out where the football is going
– Keeps his eyes locked on the quarterback
– Willing to attack the run and step up on screens
– Straight line speed does not equate to good recovery speed
– Always one chess move behind wide receivers
– While he does attack the run, his ability to do so is average
– Due to the inconsistency with which he sticks on outside receivers, he will have to learn the fundamentals of a zone or shadow cornerback
– Will be outrun consistently by faster wide receivers; struggles to recognize the first step

Bottom Line on Reggie Robinson
Reggie Robinson has some underlying traits and size that make him an ideal hybrid cornerback. He will, however, have to radically improve his ability to stick on receivers or adapt to a safety role. In the end, that may be too much to adapt to in a starting or even rotational role. Regardless, he has a knack for the football, and might be able to turn that into a special teams role.
Robinson has specific traits that will be a good fit with certain teams and he’ll be one of the most fascinating late round picks. While some scouts are higher on him due to fundamental strengths, there are those who are less enthusiastic due to the work he will need to put in in order to adapt. Regardless, his length and the willingness to put in the work make him a project worth investing in.
