Right now he might just be an afterthought as a UDFA, but he is a player.

He has excellent size and athleticism, he has quick and quite strong for a big man he has solid pass rush moves.

I have to admit I am rooting for him to make the roster, I think in a 3-4 he could be a very solid SOLB, he has the quickness to cover tight ends and runningbacks and can drop into zones, but he also has experience playing DE with his hand in the ground and turn the corner.

He was a team captain and a leader on and off the field, I hope this guy can make something of himself.

I was very leery of our draft until I saw the UDFAs we signed. I think that Baker, Pedalescuex, and Robinson all make the roster and contribute.

I am very glad to see STs getting serious consideration for a change.

Yep....I really like like the UDFAs that we signed.

I would not be surprised if 2 or 3 of them made the roster with a few more on the practice squad.

Rulon Davis is another UDFA who might make a push for a roster spot.

Rulon is a PS player, he needs a lot of development.

There is no denying his pure athleticism and his will and with his history he will be a leader and respected in the locker room.

Right now I see Dominique Johnson and Rulon Davis and Maybe Pedescleaux and Schlueter are PS candidates, they all have upside but all are raw and need practice before they are ready to play.

Baker and Robinson could make the roster because their spots are weak. Robinson especially could be a candidate if Moss and Crowder do not assimilate well to playing OLB.

I was surprised Robinson wasn't drafted. He seemed to have helped himself since the college year ended and participated in various alll-star games and such. I think he could play really anywhere at LB, but might be better inside.

He was the standout player at Texas vs Nation.

He could certainly play inside in a 3-4, but with his pass rush experience, I think he would be such a good fit at SOLB. I really think he can be a Mike Vrabel type player.

An ultra-productive linebacker who finally made the All-SWAC team as a senior (first team), collecting 111 tackles, 10.5 for loss, 3.5 sacks, three interceptions and three forced fumbles. The four-year starter had 223 tackles (33.5 for loss) coming into the season, so he was no one-year wonder. NFL defensive coordinators who use 3-4 scheme principles may view him as a potential starter at rush linebacker.

01/28/09 - Texas vs. The Nation, Tuesday: Lee Robinson, a linebacker from Alcorn State, continues to impress with his athleticism. Even at 249 pounds, he has the ability to track running backs in the flat and get to receiver in short zones. He's a guy who looks like Tarzan -- and plays like him, too. Of this week's participants, Robinson should be one of the first players drafted. - Chad Reuter, The Sports Xchange, NFLDraftScout.com

nfldraftscout.com had him rated as a 6th round draft pick.

Positives: Good height and upper-body strength. ... Can bull rush and rip from running back/tight end blocks. ... Nice closing speed, runs downhill to attack ballcarriers. ... Often lines up outside the defensive end in a rushing stance to take advantage of his explosiveness. ... Uses his hands to keep cut blocks off his knees. ... Fights through trash inside to get to the ballcarrier. ... Will hustle down plays. ... Team leader on and off the field.
Negatives: Teams will not know whether he's a versatile inside-outside linebacker or a "tweener" until they have him in training camp. ... High and slow in his backpedal, but can stay with tight ends in short areas. ... Does not change direction well laterally in space. ... Needs to improve his open-field tackling, as he bounces and slides off too easily bigger backs.

He does "bounce" off the tackle. And He doesn't seem to have the
elite" speed, and he seemed tight in the hips. Maybe worth a looksee, but I am not gonna hold my breath........

I view him as an ILB in the 3-4 - he's strong enough to hold up a G

You are not the only one, I still think with his pass rush he can split outside if needed, at least in the 3-4.

I just don't think he's agile enough to play outside in teh 3/4...situational blitz, ya maybe - but then he can do stunts, etc on the inside....
