NFL Draft Preview: Trenton Robinson| View Comments
From a 3-star high school recruit in the 2008 class, to a projected 3rd or 4th round pick in the 2012 NFL draft. That's what hard work and playing for Mark Dantonio has done for the former Spartan free safety.
In four seasons at Michigan State, Robinson started 32 career games, wracking up 229 tackles, nine interceptions and 12 pass break ups. He was a two time all Big Ten selection and a captain in 2011.
Trenton plays much bigger than his 5-feet-9, 195-pound frame thanks to his passion to play the game and a desire to win at all costs. When you combine those intangibles with his speed - a 4.52, 40 in the combine, 4.46 at MSU's pro day - NFL scouts think he will be a valuable cover safety and also have to the ability to play corner in nickel and dime situations.
Earlier today, Spartan Network Analyst Jim Miller, who will be covering the NFL draft for Sirius Satellite Radio, helped me break down Robinson's game at the next level.
Bottom line, Miller believes that Robinson should be drafted no later than the 3rd round.
