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 don't think they will stop him, but they'll definitely double him. Houston is good vs the run (best we've seen so far), so I'm sure they'll try to make JB throw as much as possible. They aren't great vs the pass, so this should be an opportunity for JB to quiet the doubters. I think 2 of their CBs are banged up too   Their rush D is better than both the Raiders and the Titans. Those two teams kept Mack at 51 and 39 yards.   I'd guess that Reich will install a game plan on O to spread it around, but I'm betting TY still gets his. It's going to be interesting on D for us. They are 4th in rushing yards per game, and 10th in passing yards per game. I think we may get gashed a bit. I don't see us playing man as much as last week.
    • They don't have to key on him as much with Brissett in the mix.  I don't think he'll hit Hilton in this game for the home-run or long-balls.  Different era of arm and mindset now that Luck's gone.
    • it all depends on what Frank decides to run on game day
    • It's also worth mentioning that Carolina has a top ten OL, while TB's OL is bottom 10.  I've never been a fan of Winston, but it's much easier being a QB for Car, and it's certainly nice to have a guy like McCaffrey to take the pressure off a backup.   Also, didn't Winston have like 5 INTs and 2 fumbles. Pretty hard to win with 7 turnovers. Very surprised Carolina didn't beat them by more. I think Winston's QBR was under 10.0 lol.    
    • Now now this is a bit of a strawman. It's one game, in which both QBs were playing so they had a direct impact on each other's numbers. I mean it was hard in some ways for Allen to put up yards when his D kept gifting him great starting position.   To your wider comparison, Allen is a backup covering for a starter and they have a RB lighting it up. I'm not surprised they've kept it quite conservative. Even then, it's never been an O built on gaudy passing numbers.    Winston.. is when you've found out the answer to "is he the guy", but at least you won't die knowing. Has the arm, doesn't have the QB smarts IMO. I'd certainly rather have the latter than former if I had to choose one. But what's wrong with wanting both?    Again... and I will keep repeating this, why is it so wrong to want to see if Brissett is capable of slinging it when needed. Quite prepared to be patient, but also not going to ignore that he has some worrying shortcomings so far and it's not just his reluctance to push it deep. Progressions, locking onto receivers, a few misdiagnoses of defenses (overly critical of me I know). I'd almost be more forgiving if he was trying to make plays and making mistakes, but he's being very conservative and still making some fundamental errors. In a short span of games you'd live with it, but the hope is that he's going to be our guy for years right?
