2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Alton Robinson, DE, Syracuse
Athletic pass rusher with big upside. Smooth, fluid and very agile. Plays with terrific pad level, gets a lot of momentum going up the field and easily bends off the edge. Good athlete who works his hands throughout the action and easily changes direction and redirects to the play. Fluidly moves in every direction, can pursue from the back side and covers a good amount of area.
Struggles to get off blocks and gets easily taken from the play. Has tackles broken and struggles to bring opponents down at the point of attack. Must improve his strength.
After tremendous junior campaign, Robinson watched his production fall off last season and was the second-best pass rusher on the Syracuse roster. He’s a terrific athlete with great upside, but he must physically mature and continue to develop his game to have a career at the next level.
