Demarcus Robinson was the 28th pick in the 4th round (No. 126 overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Bio:

Robinson had a lot of ups and some downs during his college career. The Georgia native recorded 101 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns over the past two seasons. But he recorded career-highs in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns as a sophomore during the 2014 season when he totaled 53 catches for 810 yards and seven touchdowns. He finished his junior campaign with 48 catches for 522 yards and two touchdowns. Robinson was suspended four times during his three seasons at Florida — last season’s Florida State game, the 2014 season opener against Idaho, and twice in 2013. Robinson admitted at the NFL Combine to once spending 45 days in drug rehab at the Florida Recovery Center at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. He decided to forgo his senior season to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

Scouting report:

According to NFL.com, Robinson is “immensely talented with elite combination of straight-­line speed and quick­-twitch athleticism.” But his routes can be lazy at times and he relies too much on his athleticism and speed over improvement of skill level. Scouts also have concerns regarding his hands, as he had 11 drops to 106 catches at Florida. Robinson’s film shows he has game-breaking potential as a deep ball threat, but his four suspensions are a concern. Analysts predict Robinson to be a sixth or seventh-round pick.

NFL Combine results:

40-yard-dash: 4.59 seconds
20-yard shuttle: 4.19 seconds
3-cone-drill: 6.77 seconds
Vertical jump: 34.5 inches
Broad jump: 10 feet, 3 inches

“I think he’s going to struggle off of press, and he didn’t make big plays that were there for him sometimes. He’s way faster on tape than in timing. He got suspended four times. I’m too old for that (expletive). If you get suspended that much, you are crying out to teams that you won’t ever change.” — NFC wide receivers coach.
