    Size: 6-2, 209 pounds

    Combine 40-yard dash: 4.46


    POSITIVES


    His father, Terry, is a NFL coach, and that helps because he understands the game and what it takes to get there. Robiskie has excellent hands and catches the ball away from his body, which is important because it doesn't allow balls to bounce off the chest. Is smart and reads zone coverages well because he finds holes in the defense.

    NEGATIVES

    He's not special. He's just solid and to become an elite receiver he has to be special. He doesn't have any burst off the snap and isn't explosiveness out of his cuts which hurts him in his ability to get away from cornerbacks. He's not very strong and has a weak lower body.

    COWBOY FIT

    He can be a nice slot receiver here because he has good speed and has the ability to make catches on key third down plays. Robiskie can compete with Isaiah Stanback for the fifth wide out spot. His health isn't a question like Stanback's so that helps him in his ability to make the team.

    I'll admit it that I love this kid. Love him. I'd be thrilled if he was to land in Dallas. I know he's not the speed demon everyone loves but the kid runs great routes, has great hands, and seems to be a darn hard worker who does everything he can to improve. I'll take a guy like that on my team any day of the week.

    I think that a lot of people will wind up very surprised at just how good this kid will be.

    i dont like this guy at all-we need someone like mike thomas who can do a lot of things for us(PR/KR) besides being a true speed threat for Romo and he can be had with our 1st 4th rd pick.
