Default Brian Robison

I heard this on the radio this morning and was looking at more combine stuff this week. Robison ran a 4.66/4.62 40. He had a 40-inch vertical, 10-foot-1 broad jump, 27 reps of 225 pounds. Besides the reps on the bench he had better if not similar stats to Mario. So why is a guy like this any different than last year?I guess this post is part amazement and part tongue in cheek. Earlier in the week I talked on here about how I thought the combine was alot of hype when there were better ways to look at guys. Alot of people disagreed and that is great. I like the debates. I just find it funny that we take a guy #1 with these incredible measurables yet another may move up the charts but isn't getting the hype. If this has been talked about, I'm sorry. I just found this out of whack.

I'd take a late round flyer on Robinson. Not sure where he is slated to be drafted but the kid plays with a motor which is a good addition to his measurables....

Good point, but I don't think this staff is as stupid as the Casserly staff. They wouldn't spend a last #1\early #2 on a player like this...atleast I hope they wouldn't...

As others have pointed out the size is the biggest difference in the two guys. You don't really see many guys Mario's size with those kinds of numbers, but Robison does look like a good prospect. Reminds me a bit of David Pollack. I think he'll be successful in the NFL be it as a 3-4 OLB or a situation pass rusher type.

I'm going to miss CC's voice as he explained his picks after the draft. He's got such a soothing & calm voice much like that of Dick Cheney. You know the "how dare you question me you lowly peasant" type of tone. Every year he would have us believe we just landed the next LT or Jim Brown. Just thinking about it gets me all misty eyed.

I hear ya too. Im pretty sure Babin put similar numbers like that at the combine, which caused a certain GM to fall in love with him...
