A lot of folks believe that Patrick Robinson will be the second corner back off the board in the 2010 NFL Draft after Corner Joe Haden is selected. Robinson has an impressive skill-set to do well in the National Football League. Of course his draft status will most likely be heavily influenced at the NFL Combine in February. Florida State has turned out some pretty good Cornerbacks over the years, some of the names include: Antonio Cromartie, Terrell Buckley, and the most notable shut-down Corner to ever play the game in Deion Sanders. While there may never be another player like Neon Deion, Robinson does have the opportunity to make a name for himself at the next level.
Below, we'll look at some highlights from Robinson and some of his stats...
The video here showcases some of Robinson's skill-set. At times, he shows that he needs to be more aware. He locks on to the wide receiver longer than need be and doesn't get turned around quick enough to defend the ball at times. Robinson will sometimes take bad angles in an attempt to make a big hit as well which is not featured on this particular video. He needs to work on a few things but he does a lot of things well also.

SUMMARY AND PROJECTIONS:
As mentioned above, Robinson has a few things to polish up but he will see playing time next year wether it be as a nickel package corner or possibly even a second cornerback depending on what team grabs him. One thing I didn't mention, is that Robinson can lay heavy hit's on running backs in the run game and wide receivers. It is very rare that you will ever see Robinson shy away from contact. It will surely be interesting to see how he excels at the pro level. Part of me is surprised that nobody has really suggested Robinson as a candidate for the 49ers if he fell to us in the second round. There alot of needs and Corner could certainly be be addressed later on, but if Robinson were to fall, I don't think I'd be completely against this selection if the Niners chose to go that route.
Possibilities -- Mid-First Round to Mid Second Round
