Getting drafted in the later rounds sometimes isn’t as great of an option as being able to pick where you want to play your professional football. Being a priority undrafted free agent isn’t all bad. And that’s the world that Tyrese Robinson is living after going undrafted in the 2022 NFL draft.

Robinson signed a deal with the Washington Commanders and has a great shot to make the opening week roster out of training camp. With experience at guard and tackle and limited roster space in the NFL, Tyrese Robinson was chosen as the best undrafted free agent fit for the Washington Commanders by The Athletic’s Nick Baumgardner (Subscription required).

A three-year starter at Oklahoma with guard and tackle experience, Robinson is undersized (6-2, 317) and likely limited with where he can go in the NFL, but he plays with a lot of power and physicality. There are size and athletic limitations but he’s tough to move off his square. — Nick Baumgardner, The Athletic

The former Sooners offensive lineman started for three seasons and played more than 2,400 snaps. After playing guard in 2019 and 2020, the Sooners took his experience and moved him out to right tackle in 2021.

His experience helped steady an offensive line that was working in two new starters after losing Creed Humphrey and Adrian Ealy to the NFL.

Positional flexibility is a great ability to have at the NFL level and it’ll be what helps Tyrese Robinson have a nice career even if he doesn’t become a full-time starter in the league.
