Tulsa cornerback Reggie Robinson is an exciting prospect with the Dallas Cowboys’ first selection in the fourth round. The 6’1″ 205 pounds Robinson didn’t play corner until college, but has great physical skills and has shown good development through his time at Tulsa.
Robinson played press, man, and zone through his time at Tulsa, and has highlight plays in all three. He is still raw and will need a lot of work on his technique. With the Cowboys already adding Trevon Diggs in the second round, it will give Robinson a chance to develop while still getting reps as a slot corner.
Reggie Robinson will take time to develop
While Robinson is not a day one starter in Dallas, he has great attributes to build on. He is a terrific athlete that has plenty of spring, and is a tenacious run defender. His strength is definitely in press coverage where he’s extremely aggressive at creating jams.
Posting a 4.44-second 40-yard time at the combine, Reggie Robinson won’t get burned much in the NFL. He also did an impressive 22 bench press reps, 36″ vertical, and 7.09-second three-cone drill.
Lacks a lot in technique and can get very handsy which is common among players with technique issues. Has smooth hips and clean, dynamic transitions. While he enjoys tackling and is very willing, his technique will need refining at the NFL level.
Ranked fifth in college ball with 17 pass breakups and also snagged four interceptions. His upside is solely limited by his ability to pick up the correct techniques. The strides he made in his last year at Tulsa make it seem like that will not be a problem.
Reggie Robinson has a knack for getting to the ball, and once he refines that technique could work his way up to being a starting outside corner. However, for now, expect to see him in nickel defenses and special teams while he works on that technique
