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."
