With all their draft due diligence underway, the Jets have scheduled a visit with a potential first round cornerback, Florida State’s Patrick Robinson.
Florida State cornerback Patrick Robinson clocked a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash at the Seminoles’ Pro Day workout.
Robinson told National Football Post that he’s scheduled to visit the Browns as well as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans, New York Jets and the Green Bay Packers.
“I’m pretty satisfied with what I did at my workout,” Robinson said today. “The teams said I did a good job. I just have to be consistent with what I’m doing. I think it’s going pretty well. I’m trying to enjoy it.”
His official [Pro Day] times were 4.40 and 4.44 seconds.
He also had a 6.89 in the three-cone drill and a 4.29 short shuttle.
The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder ran a 4.46 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine, also bench pressing 225 pounds 15 times and posted a 39-inch vertical leap and a 10-2 broad jump. He registered 47 tackles and 11 pass deflections last season and intercepted six passes back in 2007.
“I would love to go in the first round,” Robinson said. “It’s been a while since we had someone go in the first round, so I would love to be the next one.”
Based on looking at some scouting reports [CBS, NFLSoup, MyNFLDraft] Robinson sounds like he would be a good addition to the Jets as the team’s slot corner with upside. It doesn’t sound like he’s the best tackler, but he’s solid in man coverage, which is what counts most to Rex Ryan and can react well, which is good news for someone who would cover the slot.
Having three first round corners might be overkill, but it’s not the worst thing in the world, especially in the same division as Brady, and as we saw in January, same conference as Manning.
Here’s a video of one of Robinson’s best days in college against Maryland.
