Discussion in 'NFL Draft' started by Ctex, Feb 28, 2007.
An interesting idea, he said one team had mentioned to him.
Brian Robison from University of Texas. Played OLB his first 2 years and then played some DE the last two. He's a player, but I would want an instinctive MLB instead of a project. I would rather his his teammates Tim Crowder or Aaron Ross.
Robison was the full-time starter at DE at Texas for the last three years of his career. Good player. Undersized but has excellent athleticism. Never played MLB.
There is an ESPN chat article with Brian I think he mentioned the Cowboys talking to him about OLB or maybe MLB. In the fifthish it round it would be worth a shot.
Tim Shaw had a good combine and played both DE and Mike. I don't think he had a lot of success at DE though.
From NFL.com profile on Brian Robinson:
Robison enrolled at Texas in 2002, spending the season competing on the scout team as an inside linebacker. He started three of 13 contests at inside linebacker in 2003, coming up with 38 tackles (22 solos) with a sack and three stops for losses. He caused a fumble and generated 14 quarterback pressures while tying a school single-season record with four blocked kicks.
For the record his name is Brian Robison.
Robison plays so hard it is ridiculous. I think he will excel at either DE(which he has been playing the past few seasons) or OLB. He is big and quick and hits hard. I'd be great if the Titans drafted him as he would be great value and could be picked up after the first day IMO.
I think he is best fitted to be a 3-4 de/olb tweener.
Rather have Willis.
