Draft Scout *Allen Robinson News
04/15/14 - Five players who should be on the Seattle Seahawks' draft radar: WR Allen Robinson, Penn State: Receivers often take longer than most other positions to acclimate to the NFL and the Seahawks remain strong enough at the position to not expect too much from a rookie. During his tenure with the USC Trojans, Carroll frequently supplemented playmaking flankers and slot receivers with a monster split-end. The 6-foot-3, 220 pound Robinson is pro-ready, based on his growth in former Nittany Lions head coach Bill O'Brien's attack and boasts the size, leaping ability and catch radius to be a unique weapon in the red zone. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/10/14 - Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson rebounded from a so-so NFL combine performance at PSU’s pro day yesterday, in the process stabilizing his stock in the 2014 NFL draft. He answered questions about his speed with an improved 40-yard dash time and continued to show rangy athleticism with a 42-inch vertical leap. This year’s draft class runs deep with talented wide receivers, many of whom have only subtle differences in their games. After Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans, the consensus top two receivers in the draft, all bets are off as Robinson vies with Marqise Lee, Brandin Cooks, Odell Beckham Jr., Kelvin Benjamin, Davante Adams and Martavis Bryant for first-round consideration. There’s depth at the position, yes, but there’s also high demand, particularly in the bottom of the first round. A handful of teams will play the depth to their advantage and wait for the second round (or later) to find a wide receiver. But plenty of others will have receivers at the top of their draft boards when they’re on the clock.
Robinson lost ground to Cooks, Lee, Beckham Jr. and Benjamin after a relatively slow 40-yard dash time at the NFL combine. He clocked a 4.61, but bounced back yesterday and said he was clocked by scouts from “4.42 to 4.47 and some 4.5s.” Representatives from 26 teams, including Eagles coach Chip Kelly and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, were on-hand for the workout. “This season I was caught a couple times on some long runs,” Robinson said. “But at the same time the two guys who caught me could come out next year and run two 4.2 40s, so then what does that mean? Know what I’m saying? I still think I separated a lot from guys on routes on go routes and different deep routes. Obviously, I got behind defenses a lot. So it’s just what teams feel, so I wanted to come out here and run my best 40.” - Dustin Hockensmith, Penn Live
04/09/14 - Penn State Pro Day: Robinson stands out...Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson put on a show the Nittany Lions pro day Tuesday. Robinson, the No. 34 overall prospect in the NFLDraftScout.com rankings and seventh-ranked receiver, showed Tuesday much-improved burst and the kind of explosiveness some scouts expected at what proved to be a marginal workout at the Scouting Combine. With a 4.47 time in the 40, 42-inch vertical and 6.53 three-cone at State College, Robinson vastly improved his athletic results from Indy: 4.60, 39-inch vertical, 7.00 three-cone. He also added four inches to his broad jump (131 inches Tuesday). The effort to show more suddenness was evident in Robinson's frame. He weighed 220 in Indianapolis and was 208 at pro day.
Robinson left Penn State with one season of eligibility remaining as one of the most productive in conference history with a combined 174 receptions and 2,445 receiving yards. In game film review, the record-setting receiver doesn't consistently show top-end acceleration or quick-twitch explosion. He does flash in those areas with deceptive acceleration and sharp cuts to be a dangerous catch-and-go receiver. He is physical and will be viewed as an excellent consolation prize from picks 20-40 for teams that miss on the upper-tier prospects.
Among those present from NFL teams were Eagles head coach Chip Kelly and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. Beyond the common state ties, they also have a need at the wide receiver position. Robinson would fill an immediate need outside, particularly for the Steelers. The Eagles would seemingly be in the market for more of a vertical home-run threat or slot receiver type following the release of DeSean Jackson. - The Sports Xchange
