Scouting Report

6’1, 225 (EST) … 2022 Senior Bowl invite … consensus 4-star recruit out of high school … had career-best 1,336 yards and 14 TDs in 2021, his first as a full-time starter … averaged 5.0 ypc and scored 29 TDs during career at Alabama … lots of tread left on his tires; only one season with more than 100 carries (2021) … Physically, Brian Robinson Jr. is an impressive running back; is on the taller side for the position but has plenty of body armour to withstand hits that naturally come with height like his at the position … deceptive athlete whose stride makes him appear slower than he is; plenty of speed to rip long runs and chunk gains; 40-time will be important for his final draft valuation, but field speed is on par with some of the top running backs in the NFL … has enough agility and wiggle to shake would-be tacklers, but it isn’t his calling card; possesses a top-shelf jump-cut that he unleashes both behind the LOS and in the open field; it’s a natural an innate part of his game that’s very exciting … patient runner; waits for running lanes to appear before pressing the gas; has enough burst to hit holes before they close and dash into second level … pad level is a bit high at times, but he’s proven capable of lowering his shoulder and powering forward for tough yards … effective both inside and outside; has enough leg drive to make positive yards through trash and possesses enough speed to turn the corner and get upfield on wide runs … incomplete as a receiver due to limited opportunities; when targeted, he proved to be a reliable catcher but doesn’t necessarily pluck the ball away from his frame … capable in pass protection; his size and initial pop stuns would-be blitzers upon arrival … overall, Robinson projects as a starting NFL running back who can be the bellcow of a rushing attack; he was stuck behind a very talented crop of running backs at Alabama which benefits his long-term projection; he has a lot of carries left in the tank. How high he goes in the draft will depend on what he does in a t-shirt and shorts at the NFL Combine and his Pro Day.
