CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Maryland redshirt senior LB Matt Robinson must stay healthy in 2014 to attract the NFL's attention.
Robinson moved to linebacker last season after beginning his career at safety and produced immediately, ranking fourth on the squad with 73 tackles, including 10 for loss. "The adjustment was smooth, but he also has a lot of developing left to do at the position," Brugler wrote. "Robinson looks the part, but is leggy with little muscle definition and needs to groom his body more for the rigors at linebacker. He takes sharp, aggressive angles to the play with good pursuit speed to chase and a natural nose for the ball. Robinson's lack of functional strength is easy to spot on tape, struggling to shed or generate much pop at the point of attack, but his motor continues revving even when locked up." Robinson has missed a huge chunk of playing time in recent seasons with a torn labrum, rotator cuff problems, and a groin injury. Sat, Jul 26, 2014 05:18:00 PM
