    I think he is a pretty logical choice for a draft pick. From Virginia, and has the size and skills to play NT. Him and Ferguson and Pepper will rotate, and he can be the eventual starter.
    The thing is I have not actually seen him play, I am just assuming he is a solid pick because of where he is from and his size.
    How strong is he? How quick of a burst does he get to engage? Anyone give any kind of scouting report on him? I think we can get him 2nd day easily.

    So we have a 3 man rotation at noseguard. Exactly how many defensive linemen are we keeping next year?

    I'm not opposed to NT depth later in the draft.

    No guarantee that Glover is back. What has Thomas Johnson done to prove he can hold down the nose if Ferguson is injured?

    However, I do think NT is less of an issue than I used to.

    Thomas Johnson who knows if he will be on the practice squad still or not. Glover will be gone. Ferguson may not be around for more than a year or two, if we can get a guy like Kwakou to replace him. Would end up as Kwakou Robinson at starter and Pepper as backup in the rotation with Ferguson gone.
    Btw I think he will be a late 2nd day pick. Probably 6th or 7th rd pick.

    same question could be asked of this kid, but for the record, I do want him in the 7th round

    I have seen him play... quite often, actually, being a UVa fan and living about an hour and a half from Charlottesville... the Cavs are on TV down in my neck of the woods quite often...

    Robinson has all the measurables, but doesn't really make that big an impact on the game, which is why he has slid down the draft charts some... I personally believe he'd make a great 6th or 7th round pick, but I'd do so with an eye toward moving him to the offensive line... his initial quickness is just average for a DT, but would be exceptional for an offensive lineman... if he could handle the snapping duties, I think he'd make a terrific center...

    Robinson was a highly touted DE coming out of high school in NJ, a real recruiting coup for Groh, but never played up to the hype. He moved to NT last year.

    Why would he be on practice squad when he already played couple of games and has been 53 man roster entire year?? Plus BP is very high on the guy, not that every Guy who BP has been high on exactly turned out to be great. But still, he will be one of the guys on 53 man roster in all likelyhood.
