Scouting Report on Damien Robinson

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 08/25/2009
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeAs Good As It Gets
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Foot QuicknessDivision I Player
On the Hoof: A massive offensive lineman with a huge powerbase and a barrel-chested upper body. He is already big enough to compete at the next level. He will remind fans physically of Auburn freshman John Sullen.
Needs Improvement: Robinson needs to work on his overall athleticism, because he sometimes struggles versus fast outside pass rushers. He also needs to work on staying low while run blocking
Most Impressive: His mobility for his size is just incredible, and he has pretty good feet for a giant offensive lineman. He is so strong and big, it is almost an impossible task for defensive linemen to move him.
Conclusion: Physically big enough to compete right now, so he may see playing time early on depending on the depth chart. Do not be surprised if he is cross-trained as an right offensive tackle/offensive guard in order to get his size and strength on the field earlier. Robinson could become a real road grader as a run blocker before his career is over.
