Florida WR Demarcus Robinson is the Chiefs third fourth round pick

New, comments

With the 126th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select Florida WR Demarcus Robinson. He is the nephew of former NFL WR Marcus Robinson. He also visited the Chiefs before the draft. He is listed at 6'1 and 203 pounds.

He led Florida in receiving the past two seasons but was also suspended four times. I can see why he possibly dropped...

The Chiefs probably needed to draft a receiver in this draft. Some of us thought this would come earlier, like the second or fourth round. However, the Chiefs must like some of the receivers they already have because they've waited until their third fourth round pick to make it.

His NFL Draft profile reads:

Immensely talented with elite combination of straight-­line speed and quick­-twitch athleticism. Robinson flashes game­-breaking potential as a deep ball threat and after the catch, but was suspended by two different coaches over a three-year period. While Robinson is likely to test off the charts and has the talent to be a top four receiver in this draft, it is hard to imagine his draft slot equaling his talent due to his character concerns.

This is a neat post from our Florida blog on a big day he had in 2014.

This was the Chiefs third fourth round pick. They took Cincinnati OL Parker Ehinger at No. 105 and Minnesota CB Eric Murray at No. 106.
