2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Antwain Robinson, DE, Arkansas

Robinson is a pass-rushing specialist and that is what he projects to be--probably to an even more significant extent--at the next level. That is unless he moves to outside linebacker in an NFL 3-4 scheme, which is a definite possibility. He is only 258 pounds, so he can take a beating from opposing offensive linemen and he is not much of a factor in stopping the run. Robinson's current one-dimensionality is most likely the reason why he has only been spot-starting throughout the past two years as an Arkansas Razorback. As a sophomore in 2006, however, he enjoyed his best season with 13 starts and 8.5 sacks. Robinson was arrested in March of 2007 for shoplifting and perhaps soured his standing with the coaching staff. He started six of thirteen games that season and recorded three sacks. So far this season Robinson has made just one start in nine outings, recording 19 tackles (three for loss) and two sacks. It's clear that Robinson has the talent to be a force and the speed (under 4.8 in the 40-yard-dash) to be a sack-master both in college and on Sundays. He just needs to stay out of trouble, capitalize on his opportunities, and come through with a big performance at the NFL combine because right now, of course, his stock is not exactly soaring. Robinson should be off the board sometime not too long into Day 2 of the draft.
