NFL DRAFT 2012: GIANTS SELECT TIGHT END ADRIEN ROBINSON, OFFENSIVE TACKLE BRANDON MOSLEY IN 4TH ROUND (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/04/nfl_draft_2012_giants_select_t.html)

"The Giants (http://www.nj.com/giants) got their tight end two
days later than many had projected.<div class="entry-content">


The team selected Cincinnati's Adrien Robinson with the first of their two
fourth-round picks (No. 127 overall). Four picks later, the team chose Auburn
offensive tackle Brandon Mosley with the 131st overall pick.</p>


Robinson, who measured in at 6-4, 264 pounds, is a player who didn't have
much production in college (12 receptions last season) but he had a tremendous
spring, running in the 4.5s for his 40-yard dash. He showed plenty of
athleticism to obviously catch the eye of Giants' scouts. The team <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/04/giants_bring_in_draft_candidat.html">brought
him in for a pre-draft visit</a>.</p>


Though scouting reports present questions about his blocking, the fact tight
ends coach Mike Pope signed off on him tells you the team believes he can
improve in that department.</p>


"The sky is the limit with that kid," a personnel evaluator for another team
said of Robinson.</p>


Mosley (6-5, 318 pounds) is a former tight end who went to Auburn after
playing one season at Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College, where he caught as
many passes as Robinson did as a senior. Coincidentally, Brandon Jacobs went to
Coffeyville from Auburn; Mosley went the other way.</p>


Mosley became a backup tackle for Auburn after gaining 30 pounds. He became a
starter at right tackle four games into the season and held the job the rest of
the 2010 season. Last season, he was a second-team All-SEC selection.</p>


More coming."</p></div>
