Bio: 
Three-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten and led Purdue with 12.5 tackles for loss in 2017, making 51 tackles with four sacks and one forced fumble. Tied for the team lead with five sacks and recorded 61 tackles (eight for loss), one forced fumble and one interception as a junior. Posted 32 tackles (nine for loss), 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 2015. Made 20 tackles (four for loss) with two sacks as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Undersized defensive line prospect who gets the most from his ability. Plays with excellent leverage and pad level, fires off the snap and works his hands throughout the action. Keeps his feet moving, redirects to ball carriers and wraps up tackling. Plays smart, heads-up football. Fluid changing direction and easily collapses laterally in pursuit of the action.
Neg: 
Undersized and easily controlled at the point by a single blocker. Has growth limitations.
Analysis: 
Robinson consistently makes plays on the ball and possesses the style and the substance to get consideration on a roster which uses a three-technique tackle.
