Our thoughts on 2022 NFL rookie running back Brian Robinson.


Measurables:

  • 6'2" 225 lbs.

  • 4.53 forty-yard dash

  • 30" Verticle Jump

  • 7th most carries of 15 plus yards

  • 9th in yards after contact



" If you are an Antonio Gibson owner, you should be worried."

Strengths:

  • Robinson is a physical runner and looks like a muscle-bound linebacker.

  • Physical runner when he stays downhill

  • He moves downhill with good natural power while keeping his feet moving through contact to generate extra yards.

  • The first tacker would fail or be dragged along, but Robinson can make athletic cuts and strings together multiple moves, resulting in the most missed tackles.

  • He has only two career fumbles and zero in 2021.

  • He showed mental toughness and patience for four years as he waited behind Damien Harris, Josh Jacobs, and Najee Harris.


Weaknesses:

  • Robinson displays average burst between the tackles and struggles to avoid early traffic at the line of scrimmage.

  • He doesn't consistently make defenders miss when he gets into space despite his missed tackle rate.

  • Only three of his 545 career carries resulted in runs of 25 yards or more.


Drunk Thoughts


Sitting behind three talented running backs doesn't automatically make you a bad running back. The best part about waiting is that his career usage is low, and there is plenty of tread left on the tires, which likely explains why he isn't considered a top back. Antonio Gibson is already losing passing down work to J.D. McKissic, and Brian Robinson JR. could take away some short-yardage and goal-line carries. Robinson is going late enough in drafts that there is almost all upside. The Antonio Gibson equals Christian McCaffrey thing has not and will not happen. Washinton has added another running back, and Robinson could see the high-value goal-line touches that running backs need.
