Trevor Robinson's upside


For all but 8 teams it’s now draft season in the NFL. This is the time of year people really start to put together legitimate mocks and intensify scrutiny on potentially viable prospects. Believe it or not, occasionally some of these viable prospects are actually missed by everyone. They are the players that go un-drafted or are picked way later than they probably should have been. Tom Brady and Victor Cruz are two of the most famous examples of these players that slipped through the cracks.

In the case of Trevor Robinson, he appears to be another one who slipped through the cracks and because of this people are naturally questioning why he slipped. The common theory is he just does not have much upside and that’s why he was passed over. After watching him play a new position against NFL competition (as rookie), I totally disagree with the notion that he lacks the upside of some of the higher draft choices. Since most of us Bengal’s fans have already seen him play effectively against NFL completion I've decided to support my claim that he does NOT lack upside, I would go back and stack up his measurable against the top 5 guards that were selected in last year’s draft.

I think the results may surprise a lot of people who just look at this guy as a back-up, simply because he went un-drafted.

Trevor Robinson placed himself in the top 10 among offensive linemen in four different categories. Robinson was the only offensive lineman (all offensive lineman, not just interior) to rank in the top 10 in vertical jump (30"; t-8th), broad jump (8'9"; t-6th), bench press (31; t-8th) and 40-yard dash (5.22; 8th).
