Minnesota Vikings Take Fastest Player in Draft with CB Josh Robinson
Robinson will join fellow draftee FS Harrison Smith, as the latest additions to the Vikings secondary. They will join free agents Chris Carr and Zack Bowman, in what will hopefully be a much improved unit in 2012.
So what does Robinson bring to the table? Well, how about being the fastest guy in the draft this year. He was officially clocked at the combines with a blazing 4.33 time. Other scouts claimed to have him as low as 4.29. Either way, the guy is a burner.
Josh Robinson is 5 feet 10, 199 pounds, and came out of college a year early to enter the draft. According to his NFL.com scouting report, he will be another guy who will fit well into the Vikings zone defensive schemes. With his ridiculous speed, he’ll obviously be able to cover a lot of ground in the secondary.
“When the tight end went, I think (Dwayne) Allen from Clemson (at No. 64), and there were two corners left at that time, I knew we were going to get one of them.”
“No, he’s fast. The 38-1/2 vertical, the 4.29 speed, what you see on tape. The kid’s an outstanding character kid. Excellent work habits. Everything you’re looking for.”
“This kid is more than willing to come up and hit you.”
The last comment was in response to the notion that Robinson is not the best tackler in the world.
I personally don’t expect, or count on, speed guys to be great tacklers. They are what they are, speed guys.
Robinson figures to play in the zone schemes he’s familiar with during his rookie season. He’s also a punt and kicker returner, so I hope to see him compete for those jobs as well.
