Draft Sleeper at LB?!

This guy sounds incredible as a second-day pick for a team like the Chiefs. This is from the National Football Post.

 

Lee Robinson, Outside Linebacker, Alcorn State

 

Overview

 

Robinson has been one of the Southwestern Athletic Conference’s most productive players during his four-year stint at Alcorn State. He finished the 2008 season with 111 tackles, 10½ tackles for loss and three interceptions. He was a real playmaker on defense and has the versatility to be used in a variety of roles in the NFL.

 

Scout’s Take

 

A powerfully built linebacker with good upper body strength, Robinson knows how to create collisions on contact. He loves to attack downhill, does a nice job closing quickly on the ball and makes plays on all areas of the field. Robinson did a much better job in space than scouts anticipated at the Texas vs. the Nation Bowl. He still is a bit stiff when asked to redirect but does a nice job flipping his hips and staying with receivers out of the backfield. He also lined up as a down defensive end at times. Possesses the first-step quickness and natural leverage to bull rush linemen and get after the quarterback.

 

Rundown

 

Robinson possesses an intriguing blend of upper body strength, size and speed, and could be looked at as a strongside linebacker in a 4-3 or a rush linebacker in a 3-4. He closes on the ball quickly and has the ability to rush the passer. He has never received the kind of attention he deserves and should start to create some buzz for himself at the NFL Combine. If he runs as well as many expect (4.65) at around 250 pounds, the hype machine will definitely start picking up and could move him into the mid-round portions of the draft.
