Who Is Chop Robinson? Height, Weight, Age, and More

Edge rusher Chop Robinson could be one of the first prospects off the board at his position in the 2024 NFL Draft. Here is everything to know about Robinson.

Penn State is one of the more reliable NFL talent-producing programs overall but especially on the defensive line. Defensive end Chop Robinson has a good chance of getting them back in Round 1.

Here is everything to know about Robinson.

How Tall Is Chop Robinson?

Robinson stands at 6’3″. He does lack elite proportional length, which detracts from his maximum power capacity. His non-elite length limits his margin for error against longer, larger offensive tackles.

How Much Does Robinson Weigh?

Robinson weighs in at 254 pounds. His build does not deter him from having impressive speed as he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds at the NFL Combine.

Robinson’s time was the second-best among the edge rushers who took part on the first night of on-field drills in Lucas Oil Stadium, and his unofficial split of 1.54 seconds at 10 yards was one of the best for a player his size over the past two decades.

How Old Is Robinson?

Born on Jan. 2, 2003, Robinson is 21 years old. Robinson was nicknamed “Pork Chop” at birth, later shortened to Chop. He attended Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, Md., and played in the 2020 Under Armour All-American Game.

Revisiting Robinson’s College Career

As a true freshman at Maryland in 2021, Robinson played in all 13 games with one start and had 19 tackles and two sacks

After playing his freshman season at Maryland in 2021, Robinson transferred to Penn State in 2022, where he emerged as an undeterred disruptive force, amassing 5.5 sacks, 10.5 tackles for loss, two pass deflections, and a forced fumble. He was an Honorable Mention All-Big Ten Conference honoree and the team’s Co-Most Outstanding DL.

In 2023, Robinson was named third-team Associated Press All-American and first-team All-Big Ten Conference. He tied for the team lead with two forced fumbles and started 10 games (15 tackles, 7.5 TFL with 4.0 sacks, one PBU), missing two midseason games due to injury.

He declared for the NFL Draft following the 2023 season.

Robinson’s Potential in the NFL

Pro Football Network draft analyst Ian Cummings said Robinson is a borderline top-10 prospect. He is one of the top defensive prospects in the class, and he’s a contender for the EDGE1 mantle alongside Alabama’s Dallas Turner and Florida State’s Jared Verse.

“Robinson’s physical build is unique. He doesn’t have the elite length or raw power element that many crave in top-tier EDGE defenders,” Cummings wrote.

“But Robinson nevertheless wins with all kinds of different qualities, and he compensates in the power realm with his momentum generation, strength, leverage, and relentless drive.”

As far as Robinson’s strengths go, Cummings said he earns his nickname “Chop” with unhinged, maniacal energy as a three-down defender and is an extremely dense, compact rusher with eye-catching point-of-contact strength and pop.

For weaknesses, Robinson is still working on fleshing out his power arsenal and building off of power rushes and occasionally attempts to bend the corner too late in reps, allowing tackles to recover.
