The Chicago Bears bolstered their defense with their second selection on Day 3 of the 2022 NFL draft, selecting Miami (Ohio) edge rusher Dominique Robinson with the 174th overall pick.
Robinson is a converted wide receiver. At 6’4, 253 pounds, he’s incredibly athletic but is inexperienced and still learning the position. However, he has a high ceiling, given he’s only played the position for two years.
As a pass rusher, he’s explosive and incredibly agile. He had a 41” vertical jump at the NFL Scouting Combine, which is the 98th percentile for edge rushers. When you combine that with an 81.9” wingspan, you can see why teams get excited about him.
Robinson totaled 37 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, and 6.5 sacks in two years as a defensive end. Given his athletic ability, he’s an exciting developmental player who might offer an immediate impact on situational rushing opportunities.
