2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Josh Robinson, CB, UCF
Central Florida cornerback Josh Robinson is already considered one of the top prospects for the 2012 NFL Draft even though he's only a junior. What he lacks in size, he makes up for with a great ability to run with a receiver and react to the ball. Shows a good, but not great lower half, and plays too tight in his hips. He wastes some motion in his backpedal, but his quick feet make up for it.
As a tackler, he needs work. Robinson tends to tackle too high and needs to break down and wrap. He's also not physical enough to get off blocks on the edge.
Since Robinson did well to shut down A.J. Green in UCF's bowl game last year, his stock is a little overvalued. He needs to work harder at maintaining inside leverage since he'll often get beat on a receiver's cut to the inside.
The bottom line is that he is a reactive corner and not an instinctual one. In order to take his game to the next level, he'll have to learn the finer nuances of the position since he relies too heavily on his speed and athleticism.
