Revisiting Robinson’s College Career

In 2019, Robinson played in five games as a true freshman and recorded one tackle.

As a sophomore, he played in seven games and made two starts at defensive tackle. He had 11 tackles, one tackle for loss, one sack, and one quarterback hurry.

In his junior season, Robinson battled through injuries to appear in 10 games with six starts, starting each of the final five contests of the season. He made 21 tackles, nine solo, had a career-high eight tackles in the bowl game vs. Army West Point, and recorded a tackle in each of the last seven games he played on the season.

Robinson saw action in all 13 games as a senior, making 10 starts. He finished the regular season with 31 total tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and three QB hurries.

In his final season, Robinson was named a first-team All-SEC selection. He battled through an up-and-down, injury-plagued season to help anchor the Tigers’ defense that ranked fourth in the SEC against the run (122.8 YPG) and total defense (336.1 YPG).

For the season, Robinson recorded 43 total tackles, 8.5 sacks, and 14 tackles for losses, all of which lead all Mizzou defensive linemen. He also logged five QB hurries and forced a fumble in helping the Tigers post their fourth 11-win season in program history. A two-time SEC Player of the Week, he logged a sack in seven straight games.

Robinson’s Potential in the NFL

Pro Football Network draft analyst Ian Cummings said Robinson grades out as a top-50 prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft and is worthy of early-to-mid Day 2 capital. For teams that place heightened value on power, disruptive potential, and alignment versatility, he could be seen as a first-round candidate.

“There’s still work to do for Robinson if he’s to reach his ultimate ceiling,” Cummings wrote. “While the highs are very high in the pass-rushing department, his overall synergy and counter quickness can be more consistent.

“Additionally, his footwork can dilute attack opportunities at times, and he occasionally drifts too high with his pads. Nevertheless, Robinson is a high-motor, high-utility DL with a natural feel for leverage alignment and incredible upside as a hybrid presence … In time, with more pass-rushing development, he can be an impact starter across all three downs.”
