Explanation of Player Grading System


Strengths

One of the toughest players in the draft. Has a lot of starting experience in a major conference. A real leader and good teammate. Extremely mobile and a great runner. Good pocket awareness and ability to create more time with his feet. Knows how to throw with touch. Leads receivers well and is fairly accurate. Doesn’t usually put his recievers in harms way and is a good decision maker.

Weaknesses

Saw a huge production drop-off his senior year after basically losing his top 2 targets (Dez Bryant and Brandon Pettigrew) from 2008. He had some very poor games in ’09 and at times looked frustrated by a lack of quality skill position players around him. Not the prototypical height for a starting quarterback. May not be mentally tough. Stares down receivers a lot. Only average arm strength and a lot of his balls seem to flutter. Didn’t take many snaps under center and played in a bit of a wide-open offense.

Analysis

Robinson has a ton of upside and has the potential to be a very good starter in the NFL. He showed a lot of growth at the Senior Bowl and was tied with Jarrett Brown as the most impressive QB in Mobile. It’s rare for a QB to show as much touch as he does coming out of college, especially from a spread offense. A pro comparison is hard to make, but it’s probably somewhere between Troy Smith (athletically) and Chad Pennington (as a passer).

Experience

Began starting during the 2007 season and started ever since.
