i am clueless about him. i dont even think he was invited to the combine.

this is prob a pick where JR and Ross did their homework and see some upside...

Ralph Vacchiano says the Giants brought him in for a few pre-draft workouts and loved him.

They wanted him in the 5th round, but then they traded that pick for Keith Rivers of course. So they took him here.

Not even in my scouting book. Must be a diamond in the rough. but they brought him in for a visit. I'd rather have traded up for Charles. as this point in time.

Mayock says he's a freak that needs molding. He stated Pope is the best TE coach in the league and he'll get everything out of this kid

I think they're looking at his freak like attributes and are depending on Pope to shape him up

Notes:
Prepped at Warren Central High School in Indianapolis, where the football team won the state championship in each of his four seasons — first team in state history to accomplish that feat. Also lettered in basketball. Redshirted in 2007. Saw action in seven games as a reserve tight end in ’08, grabbing one pass for 12 yards. Appeared in 10 games in ’09 and snagged 10-174-1 (17.4). Caught 6-65-1 (10.8) in nine games, including his first career start against Oklahoma, in ’10. Moved into the starting lineup in ’11 and managed 12-183-3 (15.2) in 13 games (11 starts at tight end).

Summary:
A raw, one-year starter who looks the part, Robinson was never featured at Cincinnati, but could be draftable on his measurables alone given this year’s weak TE class. Has intriguing timed speed to run down the field with long, loping strides and boasts a 39½-inch vertical and a broad jump of 11 feet 3 inches. However, his agility and suddenness do not parallel his linear/explosive numbers. Shows blocking potential, as he has stature and long arms — as he showed in the Liberty Bowl when he got a piece of three Vanderbilt defenders and escorted RB George Winn down the sideline on a 69-yard TD run. Is relatively inexperienced, unpolished and weak physically despite five years in the program. Developmental project.

..seems like a project pick because he went on to say the Giants have one of the best TE coaches in the history of the NFL with Pope and if anyone can turn this huge slab of clay into a solid peice of granite, its pope. </P>

RD 4 is still way to much quality to take a guy that has shown so little in 5yrs of playing college football.. Thats my opinion anyways..

Maybe it's just me but I'm not even thinking about how he develops as a threat. He can block, Bennett can block and we added Wilson at RB. Not an argument for him being a great pick, but I'm nonetheless feeling happy.

6'5" 264 pounds with a near 40" vertical?! And he ran a 4.51 in the 40 yard dash! Tall, jumps higher and ran faster than Colby Fleener and Dwayne Allen. He appears to be very athletic.

Strengths: Long-armed, lanky athlete with the frame to handle additional
muscle mass without losing his impressive straight-line speed. Has the
burst to challenge down the seam and accelerate past linebackers. Good
lateral agility to create some burst out of his breaks. Showcases the
hand-eye coordination to snatch the ball outside of his frame. Former
prep basketball player who generally catches the ball with his hands.
Willing blocker with developing strength. Turned heads with a strong Pro
Day workout after not being invited to the 2012 Scouting Combine.

Weaknesses: Was never a featured target in Cincinnati's offense and only
became a starter as a senior. Provides effort as a blocker has limited
functional upper body strength and allows shorter defenders to<span id="elipsis"> ...</span>

That could be why he also doesn't trade back either. He could personally just not like doing it

Listening to your "expertise" after every pick as if you get paid for this is depressing and sad! The team worked him out, did you have your private workout in the back yard? We weren't the only team interested in him!

If we moved there is no guarantee we get him.

This goes back to Wilson earlier. maybe the Giants could of moved back to 35 and got a 5th. Then U still have a 4th and take Robinson then. The Giants not working the phones is just a peeve of mine. They seem content to stay put and pick the next guy up. Which is fine but he Giants have been so good picking players later in the draft acquiring more chances to me seems like a good thing

and trading back to get extra would be using it as well. what are you arguing? no one is hung up on it but don't quote reese saying he wouldn't do that cause he values his picks when he traded one away before the draft even started

Ballard was an undrafted FA and lookmatbwhat he did this year. This kid is an athletic freak but a little raw. Pope is going to have this guy ready you watch.

agreed completely, i just feel that it would of made more sense to me to take a TE in the first and then L.Miller in the 3rd. he predicted a run on RB's that never happened. im not saying the wilson pick is a reach but i think there was a little overestimation on the pick to value at 32.

Ballard was an undrafted FA and lookmatbwhat he did this year. This kid is an athletic freak but a little raw. Pope is going to have this guy ready you watch. i hope so bro, i just feel fans have no idea what eli can do with a gifted TE. people say we don't use the position well thats because we haven't had a all around talent since shockey. and when shockey was playing, eli wasn't the beast he is today. i just want to see eli get great weapons on the gate rather than okay weapons that need development.

Hanna to me would of been a better TE pick than Robinson. i really hope bennett pans out t be what all you other guys are praying hes going to be. cause to me the TE talent has taken a steeper drop off since the 32 pick than the RB talent
Martellus Bennett has done nothing so far in his career, and now we got Adrien Robinson, who's not even done anything in 5yrs of his career, in the big east... As much as i like potential, sometimes, i'd like to see a guy who's actually produced a little bit at the position...

Yeah but Bennett is a good blocker and remember JPP didn't have many college starts.
yeah we know that, but if TE were only meant as just blocking extensions of the line then i wouldn't care what im worried about his ability in the passing attack, over the middle in the seams short to intermediate route, play action posts, flats that sort of stuff how does he fair with that.

I really like this pick. They brought him in and must of liked what they saw. His has been rising ever since he ran the way he did. The Giants also have the best TE coach in the NFL. If they brought him in and drafted him its for a reason. Watch this kid be a stud.

Me too. He took Ballard and turned him into a pretty good TE last season. Now take this guy with his athletic ability and he could be scary.

JPP had more production in his one major college yr then Adrien did in 5... Hopefully it works out, i'm kinda over it...

Yeah, but he will now have Pope coaching him and Eli throwing to him. If it doesn't work out they move on, but he will have the best of the best working with him.

With this kid, we just have to trust Reese because in college he was not really featured at all. Reports are that he is incredibly athletic. But beyond that anyone who claims to know a lot about this kid is kind of full of it because lets face it, there just isnt a lot out there on him.

Giants FO probably had him rated high on there board. You don't play around with picks when you see someone you really want on your team.

The Jaguars took a punter in the 3rd rd and teams are taking players rated all over the place. Barron top 10, Irvin 15. There is no guarantee that another team wasn't in love with him and willing to draft him in the 4th either.
