'Why Brian Robinson Jr.?'

 

In the mold of Alexander Mattison -- meshed with the physicality of Chris Carson

Movement economy & toolbox

First thing that pops with Robinson is how economical he is as a mover. Not overly dramatic, or creative, but does a fantastic job not wasting space.

 

Rarely see movement mistakes from Robinson Jr.

Watch what he does to #1.

 

Hips square towards boundary side then times his upfield cut perfectly to get to the next level.

When we talk about patience.

 

Calm - smooth - decisive

 

Nothing rushed or wasted, everything purposeful with Robinson Jr. as an interior rusher.

The element of timing again.

 

Baits the interior motion from the backer, slides by right when he senses the point of no return from an angular perspective - momentum carrying the defender to far one direction.

 

The drop the hammer into the safety.

Through contact skill set

Mature through contact skillset.

 

Makes him a significant threat to score along the goal-line.

 

Takes contact well especially direct contact.

Difficult to bring him down when space is congested with how well he feels directional pressure.

 

Also, has the strength to pull away from defenders and get into acceleration quickly.

In Washington I see Robinson Jr. forcing Gibson into a near 55-45 rush share because of how well they balance each other out.

 

Gibson a splash runner, Robinson a better pure chain mover with the ability to keep drives alive with his physicality & aptitude he displays through contact.

Play speed & Skill set as a receiver

Soft hands as a receiver, with the capabilities in open space to be tough to deal with after the catch.

 

When you go back to his early career tape, this sticks out.

Rob_Speed1.gif

Not a huge threat to hit a home run in the league, but enough speed to create yardage at the second level.

 

Not his game, but average capabilities at top-end, and in acceleration.
