2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about WAN’DALE ROBINSON:
Kentucky, 5080 178 4.38. Junior entry, one-year starter, Frankfort, KY. Spent two seasons at Nebraska before transferring to Kentucky for the 2021 season. Honorable-mention All-Big 10 in both 2019 and 2020, second-team All-SEC in 2021. Has been a hybrid receiver/running back from the start of his career and will give an NFL offense the opportunity to create a big-time playmaker out of him. Has the well-balanced athletic ability and overall skill set to do multiple things, align from different spots, and create on his own. Much more than an undersized, underneath threat that can occasionally take a jet sweep. Has had a lot of success in the deep passing game and plays with the kind of competitive fire that can at least somewhat make up for the lack of ideal size. Because he has lined up all over the offense, he is a little rough around the edges when it comes to release and route nuances, but all can be corrected in time. He is a big play threat every time he gets on the field no matter where he lines up. Hosts a combination of skills and talents that can make him a versatile weapon. Twitchy and quick lower body that can also play strong and stable. Can make explosive cuts in any direction and any time. Will put a defender on his heels. Combination of stop and go quickness along with deep speed will make him a tough cover assignment for any defensive back. Competitive with the ball in the air. Will sell out with a safety bearing down on him. Goes after it at the catch point with full effort and zero hesitation. Has a wiry strength to him. Will break tackles via movement, pad level, and strength. Has productive experience across multiple alignments, positions, and plays. Can impact the game from the slot, backfield, and out wide. A playmaker in every sense of the word. Lacks the ideal catch radius and it will show up in traffic. Cannot reach certain balls. Needs to be stronger off the line against quality pass rush. Takes the extra step or two on out-routes. Will let the ball into his body too often, forcing mechanical drops.
2021 stats: 104-1348, 12.9 ypr, 7 TD. OSR:20/33. Fourth/fifth round. (A-27 5/8, H-9, VJ-34.5, SS-4.13).
