2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about BRIAN ROBINSON JR.:

Alabama, 6015 225 4.53. One-year starter, Tuscaloosa, AL. Earned first-team All-SEC honors in 2021. At one point was above Najee Harris on the Alabama depth chart. Played behind multiple future pro running backs throughout his career and patiently waited for his time as a fifth-year senior. Did not disappoint. He thrived as a feature back and proved he can handle a full load of snaps as an every down player. His greatest impact will be found between the tackles as a bruiser picking up the tough yards. He pushes piles and rips through cheap contact by a defense. Won’t ever go down easily and is the kind of back who can wear down a defense. His athletic upside may not be overly explosive, and his running style may lead to injury. Would be an ideal complement to a backfield looking for a power piece, one that shows up as a runner and blocker. Thick like a linebacker and full of functional power and strength that shows up both with and without the ball. An absolute bruiser against defenders. Inflicts his damage on potential tacklers, running behind his pads with good leverage despite a high-hipped frame. Wide thighs and bubble butt create tremendous force. Has enough twitch to miss tacklers in short spaces and has enough ball skills to factor as a pass catcher. Can alter his path late near the end zone. Has a lot of forward momentum but can subtly shift weight last second. Elite blocker with the right mindset and fully capable skill set. One pop isn’t good enough for him. Will stay on his man and take pride in pushing him out of the play. Top end speed and agility can be caught by NFL-caliber defenses. Won’t always see the right crease or cutback lanes. Lacks innovation. Running style can lead to extra hits which won’t end up being economical for him or the offense. Has some general tightness that shows up most often in space.

2021 stats: 1343 yds, 4.9 ypc, 14 TD, 35 rec, 296 yds, 8.5 ypr, 2 TD. OSR:17/28. Third/fourth round. (A-31 7/8, H-9 3/4, BP-DNP, SS-4.59).
