A 2012 fourth-rounder, Robinson has been limited to 11 career appearances thanks to pectoral injures. He missed the entire 2013 season.

The Redskins reportedly view fourth-round pick Keenan Robinson as London Fletcher's heir apparent at inside linebacker.

Robinson can run sideline to sideline and cover tight ends, and he'll be a big part of Washington's nickel package as a rookie. Long term, he could book end Perry Riley inside. Robinson will also be a special teamer in year one.

Redskins signed fourth-round ILB Keenan Robinson to a four-year contract.

Robinson is transitioning from college 4-3 weak-side linebacker to an inside 'backer in an NFL 3-4, though he won't be playing in Washington's base defense as a rookie. With long arms and cover skills, he could earn a role quickly in Jim Haslett's nickel package, though. Robinson will also run down kickoffs.

Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett confirmed that fourth-round pick Keenan Robinson will play inside linebacker in Washington's 3-4.

Robinson was a weak-side linebacker in Texas' 4-3. Not a pass rusher, though, Robinson will compete for a nickel 'backer role as a rookie, as he possesses length and speed to cover tight ends and bigger slot receivers. Robinson is not expected to threaten for Perry Riley or London Fletcher's starting jobs.

Redskins selected Texas LB Keenan Robinson with the No. 119 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

A large framed weak-side linebacker in Texas' 4-3, Robinson has adequate speed to make tackles on the outside and strength to take on blocks at the second level. However, he does not fight over those blocks very well and consistently makes the wrong read on misdirection runs. With 85 tackles and six pass deflections as a senior, Robinson also flashed zone coverage ability.
