2016 Mock Drafts: A'Shawn Robinson To The Redskins?

Posted Feb 16, 2016

With a possible need for defensive line depth, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller believes the Redskins will select Alabama's A'Shawn Robinson in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

With a possible need for defensive line depth, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller believes the Redskins will select Alabama's A'Shawn Robinson in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

As the Washington Redskins begin assembling their roster for the 2016 season, many draft pundits believes they’ll select a defensive lineman in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller is no different, as he has the Redskins selecting Alabama defensive end A’Shawn Robinson with the 21st overall-pick.

“General manager Scot McCloughan spent his first pick with Washington on an offensive lineman—Brandon Scherff—in a move that symbolized a lot about his draft philosophy. His picks will be generally safe and initially will be about adding toughness to the interior of the team. Scherff fit that mold, and Alabama’s A’Shawn Robinson does, too,” Miller writes. “Robinson can play five-technique in a 3-4 defense at a very high level right out of the gate thanks to his development at Alabama. And while he wasn’t much of a pass-rusher there, don’t sleep on Robinson becoming more of a force there in the NFL if freed up to go get the quarterback more in a one-gap defensive front.”

Robinson appeared in 42 games during his three seasons with Alabama, recording 133 tackles along with nine sacks, five passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

The 6-foot-4, 312 pounder was a consensus All-American during his junior season in 2015, as he tallied 46 tackles along with 3.5 sacks.

In a Nov. 14 31-6 victory over Mississippi State, Robinson recorded 2.5 sacks.

During his sophomore season in 2014, Robinson was an honorable mention All-SEC selection by the Associated Press, recording 49 tackles along with three passes defensed and a blocked extra point.

As a freshman, Robinson, a Fort Worth, Texas, native, led the Crimson Tide in sacks with 5.5 en route to Freshman All-SEC team honors.

According to his NFL.com draft profile, Robinson is “well-­proportioned with powerful, tree­ trunk legs make it tough to move him off the spot.”

“Has boom in his punch and dislodges guards and centers if they try and wait on him. Pure power to toss a one-­on-­one block aside. Athletic enough to give reasonable chase to the ball. Well schooled in using length to stuff cut blocks. Has frame and length to eat blocks and allow linebackers to run free. Heavy tackler. Running backs do not break his tackles and he rarely fails to finish when he’s locked in on his target. Able to generate pocket push when he gets it cranked up as a pass rusher. Boss man in the locker room and in practice helping to hold teammates accountable. Coming into the draft with relatively fresh legs playing just 57 percent of Alabama’s defensive snaps over last two seasons. Has brute force to match NFL power immediately,” his profile writes.

NFL.com’s Lance Zeirlein believes Robinson could be a lot like two-time Pro Bowler John Henderson.

In 10 seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders, Robinson totaled 489 tackles with 45 passes defensed, 29 sacks and eight fumbles forced.
