2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Keenan Robinson, OLB, Texas

Texas Longhorns linebacker Keenan Robinson started for three years at inside linebacker, but will likely move outside when entering the NFL. Robinson is a well-balanced player with adequate speed and good strength. He is a quick-twitch guy who can generate big hits. Robinson is above average in coverage and plays with patient feet. Doesn't get out of control or lean and he does well to stay in his drop.

He's not instinctive in spite of his great first step. Can't feel his way through a crowd consistently and gets lost in the pile. He's not a technician as a tackler. Robinson is looking to take guys out, rather than take them down. He'll need to tweak his fundamentals and learn to not just throw his body into the defender.

If in coverage, he can get in trouble when asked to turn over his hips. He gets decent depth in his drop, but he's not someone you can count on right away to cover an athletic tight end by any means. He plays the man better than he plays the ball. Robinson is best suited as a rotational linebacker. He has a low-end potential to become a starter but that will take time and serious development.
