Draft Scout *A''Shawn Robinson News
10/30/17 - DT A'Shawn Robinson was ejected in the final minute of Sunday's game after he threw two punches at Steelers guard Ramon Foster. Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said Robinson and three of his teammates who left the bench to get involved with the scrum -- cornerback DJ Hayden and defensive linemen Jeremiah Valoaga and Cornelius Washington -- will be subject to internal team discipline along with whatever punishment the NFL deems fit. All four players could be fined.
10/18/17 - DT A'Shawn Robinson was one of three defensive linemen who did not practice on Tuesday.
12/05/16 - DT A'Shawn Robinson batted down his sixth pass of the season Sunday when he deflected a ball at the line of scrimmage. That's the most pass breakups by a defensive lineman since Jason Pierre-Paul had six in 2010. A second-round pick out of Alabama, Robinson also had two tackles in the game.
12/01/16 - Rookie DT A'Shawn Robinson made his first start of the season in last week's Thanksgiving win over the Minnesota Vikings.
A second-round pick out of Alabama, Robinson has had a productive first 11 games with 17 tackles, two sacks and two more tackles for loss. He's known primarily as a run-stuffer, but also has excelled at batting passes down at the line of scrimmage.
So far this year, Robinson has five pass deflections, tied for third on the team behind cornerbacks Darius Slay (10) and Nevin Lawson (six).
"I just think that that's kind of part of a guy, has a feel for lanes and timing," Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said. "He's trying to get to the quarterback first of all, that's a secondary sort of a thing, but (he's able to make an) adjustment because he's athletic. He's reminded me a couple times that he was a basketball player, offered a scholarship by a couple schools. So he's a pretty good athlete."
10/17/16 - DT A'Shawn Robinson batted down his third pass of the season Sunday. Robinson played as the Lions' third defensive tackle with Haloti Ngata sidelined by a shoulder injury. Ngata is expected to miss at least one more week with his injury.
