NFL Draft Profile: Corey Robinson

After starting at left tackle the last two seasons, the 6'8'' behemoth looks to possibly secure a late round draft selection.

USC Career in Review:

Corey came to USC in the 2010 recruiting class. After redshirting his true freshman year, Robinson spent some time bouncing between the defensive and offensive lines. In 2012 Robinson started 9 of the last 10 games at left tackle and became a mainstay protecting Shaw's and Thompson's blindsides for the next two years.

Measurables:

Height Weight Arm Length Hand Size 40 Yard Dash 3 Cone Drill Bench Press Reps (225 pounds)
6'7'' 324 35 5/8'' 10 3/4'' 5.3 seconds 8.36 seconds 28 reps

Strengths:

Corey uses his length very well. Being over 6'7'' and having incredibly long arms, he is able to turn away pass rushers before they can really initiate any contact. Also does a good jump recognizes twists and stunts and is able to adjust on the fly. Even when he is beaten by a speed rusher he is good at using his length to continue to push defenders out of the pocket and away from his QB.

Weaknesses:

Corey often does not have a good base during pass protection. This combined with a lack of elite athleticism can cause him to panic against speed rushers. He will often open up too soon will have to attempt to frantically recover. Robinson could also benefit from working on his hand technique. His hands are almost never ready to punch back on defensive lineman in pass protection.

NFL Draft Projection:

While Robinson certainly will be viewed as a project, his size combined with his relative upside have scouts intrigued in him as a prospect. However, he will need to work on his hand placement and overall footwork and footspeed. I see Robinson coming off the board in the 6th or 7th rounds.
