Apparently both he and the kicker slipped thru the cracks. But, here is the FCS Combine results for DT's. He finished better than both Sterling Shippy and Khalen Saunders in most every event.

Found this nugget on him too.

 

Small-School Prospect - Johnny Robinson/DT/Charleston Southern: Robinson is a fireplug type of lineman who plays with great quickness, leverage and explosion. Measuring six feet tall and 295 pounds, he has the style and substance of former USC defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis. He beats opponents with great first-step quickness as well as lower body power and athleticism. In nine games this season, Robinson has totaled 33 tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss. He could slide into the closing picks of the seventh round next April, and I expect Robinson to compete for a spot as a three-technique tackle at the next level.

6ft?  295? Sound like a bowling ball to me lol

At least size wise, that is Aaron Donald and Geno Atkins territory. Production and ability wise, we will see. :)

Arm Length? At 6 feet tall it might matter a lot.

Oh my, he sure pushes the pocket with a low center of gravity consistently!!!

 

We will see how it translates to the next level of competition. You saw such things with Ty McGill but not consistently; this guy seems to be in a lot of plays and hustles pretty good for a big guy.

He looks dominant and that's what you want to see from a player at that level of competition. His get off, quickness, and pocket pushing ability are evident. Also, his hand fighting is better than most at his level/age.

 

All this from a short highlight film. I'll have to try and find actual game film to better evaluate.

 

Good luck, big fella. Looking forward to camp.

Meaning in all the lists leading up to the mini camp there was no kicker listed. I didn't bother with his info as Vinny will be kicking for us again this year. Lol

Not bad.  Not great.  But probably longer than most 6 footers.

Thanks Scott!  I have been concerned that we need a run stopper added to the current likely roster for rotational purposes.  It makes me think about the DT from Stanford we had for a short time drafted with Anderson.  He may or may not have been as quick, but he was shockingly small (I stood next to him at a game once) but he was a fire hydrant.  I hope we find someone good enough to stick on the final 53 to give us rotational depth we need to help stop the power run teams we face in division and on our schedule this year.

    • I think this could be a breakout game for JB to be honest. Houston's DBs are a bit hobbled, and one of their OTs is pretty banged up. That aside, I think TY will do his thing, and I'm betting Ebron shakes off the drops.    That tweet where JB said the deep balls are coming, does give me hope. Not because I want him throwing deep a bunch, but because going deep a couple times will impact how Houston's D will play us. Houston is not great at all vs the pass, but top 10 vs the run. I'm guessing Reich will try to exploit that. It's pretty much a given they're going to key on stopping Mack and TY, and both Reich (play calling) and JB need to use that against them.    If JB could have a good game and win this one, we have 3 very winnable games after that. Being 7-2 going into the last 7 games (which should be pretty tight) would be awesome. 
    • Matt Ryan deserves better. 30 for 36 4Tds and still loses. Teams were like 18-2 when stat line like this happens and Matt Ryan has the only 2 loses 
    • Cant say I like OSU a single ounce. Unfortunately they churn out a ton of talent. With that, once they become Colts, I can usually come around to the players. Seems CB is fond of that pipeline but our guys are injured an awful lot. Maybe stop drafting OSU players? It just seems hard to trust them to stay on the field. 
    • This weeks Around the NFL preview on Colts vs Texans is kinda relevant. 29 Minute mark it starts:   http://www.nfl.com/m/share?p=%2Fvideos%2Faround-the-nfl%2F0ap3000001066625%2FATN-2019-Week-7-Preview
    • Well... leave room for the possibility of TY and Brissett having a great outing this week.   TY's 3rd best game vs the Texans...who he's punished and torched relentlessly... came with Brissett as the QB in 2017 in the waning days of that very same Grigson/Pagano mess. Yes, Ballard was aboard by then but had yet to comprehensively turn over the roster.   No one can dispute the read/progression capabilities that Andrew had as a QB....but Jacoby HAS a chemistry with TY that will only be bolstered by the run game and the O-line, which pummeled Houston last year. And that was WITH Clowney there.   A big key to this game, IMO....is rattling and physically pounding Watson...and mixing coverages like we did against Mahomes.   I believe we can, I believe TY will light them up again....and I'm picking us to win this game.... 27-17.
