Scouting report: Brian Robiskie

Brian Robiskie

6'2, 200 | Ohio State | Wide receiver

Robiskie has top hands. Combine that with excellent agility and Robiskie can make difficult catches. Has the heart to play over the middle and knows how to absorb a hit. Comes from a football family and plays with a lot of intelligence. Knows how to take apart a zone defense, finding holes and sitting in them. Hard worker. Consistently tries to get extra yards after the catch. Has long arms and some strength allowing him beat press coverage.

Weaknesses: A lack of quickness is what holds Robiskie back from being a top receiving prospect. He has no burst off the line of scrimmage and doesn't explode out of his cuts very well. Robiskie should get stronger because he's rather thin and could get beat up against stronger opponents. Not a burner. Won't break away from many defensive backs.

Final word: Robiskie is similar in a lot of regards to Hakeem Nicks. He doesn't have great athleticism, but is intelligent and knows how to get the job done. He struggled some during his senior year, but that was mostly because Ohio State started running the ball more with Terrelle Pryor at quarterback. Had an impressive junior season, though, with 55 receptions, 935 yards and 11 touchdowns. Also returned punts and will play on special teams coverage.
