Ezra Robinson – CB – Tennessee State
In the seventh and final round of the 2017 draft for your Bucs, they look to more depth to the corner back position. Ezra Robinson out of the small school of Tennessee State is someone who fits the mold of what defensive coordinator Mike Smith wants his corners to be like.
5’11” 185 pounds of play making ability. Here is another local Florida prospect for the local team. Originally Robinson enrolled at Michigan State, and spent two years as a Spartan. Due to issues in playing time, Robinson transferred to Tennessee State which wound up as the right move.
The First-Team All-Ohio-Valley Conference player had a great senior year, and wound up with an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Robinson’s showing in Mobile will definitely put his name on team’s radars, but whether or not he fits their schemes is yet to be seen. Robinson does posses an aggressive play style and that may speak to general managers.
Robinson is not a year one starter, but he does show potential. As seventh round selection, the odds are already against any prospect selected but a gamble on Robinson would be well worth it. Brent Grimes is no young pup, and this position will need be addressed this off-season. Adding depth for the 2017 campaign is the right move.
