Draft Profiles: Brian Robiskie

Brian Robiskie: WR, Senior – Ohio State

Height/Weight: 6’3″, 210 lbs

Career Stats: 127 receptions, 1,886 yards, 24 TDs

40-Time: 4.51

Robiskie is flying up draft boards due to an excellent Combine and pro day. Experienced and tough, he possesses great hands and body control. Catches the ball naturally and runs crisp routes. Is not particularly elusive and lacks breakaway speed. However, his 4.51 40-time was better than expected. Works hard and has the size and strength to out-muscle smaller cornerbacks. Would make an excellent complementary receiver with #1 potential. There is chatter he could slip into the first round.

Best attribute: Polished skill-set.

Weakness: Not a gamebreaker.

Reminds me of: Muhsin Muhammad. Solid starter but not elite status.

Why he should be an Eagle: The Birds are desperate for size at the receiver position. If he can gain separation at the next level, Robiskie could be an answer to red zone difficulties.

    I think Brian Robiske is the perfect fit for the Birds. You know off-the-field problems won’t be an issue with his great character, and his father being a coach in the league. When it comes to playing the kid has shown that he can go deep, he runs great routes, and has great hands too. Although most of his highlights were deep routes, he looks big and tough enough to cross the middle too. Draft him Big Red, and do it if we stay at 21. He won’t be around much longer after that.(We would hate to play against him as a Giant, who blatantly need a WR.)

    I hope he doesn’t end up elsewhere in the NFC East. He has the look of a guy who could give the Birds problems.
