Scouting report: Duke Robinson

Duke Robinson

6’5, 335 pounds | Offensive guard | Oklahoma

Strengths: Perfectly sized for a guard, Robinson has the power to engulf defenders one-on-one. Quickly gets into his stance to block in-line on running plays. Does a nice job keeping his feet moving and repositioning himself. An excellent and scary drive blocker. Incredible lower body strength. Typically plays with good leverage keeping a low pad level. Gets good knee bend.

Weaknesses: Effort seems to run hot and cold and doesn’t always give the best effort. A much better run blocker than a pass blocker. Reacts late to stunts and delay blitzes. Struggles with slippery pass rushers who can spin or dip around him. On the move, Robinson has a hard to locating and neutralizing opponents in the open field. Will have trouble on occasion on pulls and traps.

Final word: For any power running team, Robinson is about as good of a guard prospect as there has been in several years. His play is similar to that of Ben Grubbs. Where he struggles most is against quick, gap-shooting defensive tackles who like to get after the quarterback.
