2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Patrick Robinson, CB, Florida State

Patrick Robinson has slowly worked his way up from reserve to superstar. As a true freshman in 2006 he played in 12 games as a back-up. In 2007 he earned All-ACC Honorable Mention honors and All-ACC second or third team accolades from some media outlets. During that season he tallied six interceptions, including one interception in five straight games. However, the 2008 season did not go as well. The story is the same in 2009. The opposition knows better now than to throw in Robinson's direction and he only picked off one pass in 2008 and has no interceptions through six games in 2009. At 5-11 and 194 pounds, Robinson's size is not much of an issue. More importantly, he has the strength to battle with receivers at the line and enough speed to make up for any mistakes. Robinson is most known for his cover skills and obviously that is the most important thing to have in a cornerback. He may not deliver the big hit or have amazing speed, but he will blanket some great wide receivers. The biggest issue for Robinson right now is his nagging ankle injury. He has already missed one game in the 2009 campaign and could miss more. He needs to come back healthy and strong as ever if he wants to be drafted in the first three rounds. 1/17 Update: Robinson quickly got over his ankle injury and returned as the Seminoles' shutdown corner. While the opposition still avoided him and he did not record an interception the entire season, Robinson did lead the team with 11 pass breakups and ranked fifth on the Seminoles with 52 tackles. He is expected to perform well at the NFL Combine and that could shoot him into the first round where corners will be hard to come by. 4/5 Update: Robinson has a confidence about him that makes him believe he can make every play. Sometimes that is a good thing, sometimes it leads to inconsistent play. Either way, he had some good workouts leading up to the draft and is hoping to sneak into the first round. That probably will not happen with fellow corners Joe Haden, Kyle Wilson and Devin McCourty separating themselves from the pack, but Robinson should be off the board by the end of the second round.
