DE Adrian Robinson-Temple
Weight: 250 lbs.
Projection: 5th-6th Round
Grade: 6.0 (Grading Scale)
A versatile defender who has spent time with his hand on the ground and off the ground in his career…a very good pass rusher who has a nice set of pass rush moves that he likes to use…stays active after initially getting blocked and can generate pressure through his effort…excelled coming out of the 9 tech set as a down lineman…good burst out of his stance that allows him to run the arc around the OT…when he is on his spin move is very dangerous and he sets it up well…pursues well once the QB breaks the pocket or the RB breaks the line…does a good job dipping his shoulder to get under big OT’s and turn the corner.
He’s simply not strong enough at the point of attack right now…has a nearly ineffective bull rush…really struggles to shed blocks…is a bit of a tweener between 34 OLB and 43 DE…not strong enough to be a DE, but not flexible enough to be a OLB…gets too aggressive on zone reads and misdirection plays…gets sucked inside by fakes and loses any hope of contain…has only an average 1st step…still has a ways to go on how to use his hands…if the OT is able to lock out and engage Robinson then the play is basically over for him.
