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.

    • When you watch any decent QB play and he doesn't find an open target, do you assume that he is not seeing open receivers? Or do you assume no one is open?        
    • It’s time to move on in the offseason probably. I think the Raiders in particular really just exposed the issues with the Colts front. It wasn’t just Hunt, but Autry too who got pushed around in that game.   Several of people on this board have been saying since last season that DT is a big weakness on this team. Hunt at NT is a spot that should be upgraded. He doesn’t rush the passer well (7.5 career sacks) and isn’t elite in the run game either. Again I wouldn’t single him out though. Stewart seems to be a better player overall but he doesn’t seem to be a long term answer. Autry is mostly just a pass rusher and undersized, Lewis is undersized and injury prone, and I don’t even know the names of any of our other DTs.   Its time for Ballard to draft real prototypical 4-3 DTs
    • What a surprise.  We were getting very poor play from the other DE position while Sheard was out.  IMO, that affected the whole D-Line.   With Sheard back we played the KC game like most games last year with our 2 inside tackles pounding the A gaps. That was when we were most successful. And Houston earned AFC Defensive player of the week. Stay tuned.
    • I agree with your logic.  But it is the same logic some people are using for the converse.  We have young receivers and no Funchess, so no one is open.
    • Not trying to start an argument. I'm only pointing out that you are essentially drawing a conclusion based on assumptions.   1) ........receivers are fast 2) ........QB makes few attempts 3).........the box is stacked   So, Brissett must be missing open receivers downfield.   I'm sure he misses some. But how many compared to other QBs?  ....  We don't really know.
