Chop Robinson sat out of the all-star games because he apparently felt his draft stock was solidified, but as scouts and “draft gurus” dig into the tape from last season, Robinson has continued to slide towards the back end of the first round.
The 6-foot-3 250 pound edge rusher has too much upside to drop out of round one, but now, I’m expecting him to drop to a spot like Detroit. There is even a chance that Robinson isn’t the first Penn State edge rusher to go in this draft.
Detroit needs another pass-rusher to pair with Aidan Hutchinson, and a long and twitchy rusher like Robinson could be the perfect compliment. Hutchinson is known for his motor and production, but has the measurables and in Dan Campbell’s culture could turn into a superstar.
