Strong Points

Has great size and huge hands (10¾ inches). Very good athlete with good play speed. Strong physique. Can snatch the ball. Strong runner after the catch. Has done some return work in the past. Good blocker. Is able to get deep. Adjusts to the ball well. Played well in All-Star games.

Weak Points

Did not test well at Combine and ran much slower than anticipated. Ran a very limited route tree at Air Force and doesn't know the intricacies of NFL route running. What is his Air Force commitment?

The Way We See It

Got a nice "bump" coming out of the All-Star games, but that went away after an average showing at the Scouting Combine. Played in a run option offense that threw the ball very little. In fact, it was because the offense was so run-oriented that Robinette was able to get so wide open. Robinette is a physical receiver with some strong traits but is very raw. Will most likely need a year on the practice squad to develop his route-running skills. Some clubs are hoping he can bulk up and play as a "move" tight end, a position that may be more close to his skill set because of his physical style of play.
