After a third trade in as many rounds, a 76-on-71 increase, the New York Giants on Friday night selected Aaron Robinson № 71 at UCF overall in the 3rd round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Giants traded in Round 1, moving from No. 11 to No. 20 and acquiring three additional variants of the Chicago Bears before choosing a broad successor, Cadarius Tony.
In the 2nd round, the Giant moved from number 42 to number 50 before choosing the edge of Georgia for the edge of Azeez Ojulari.
To take the steps for Robinson, the Giants handed over their fifth-round pick, № 1
Robinson is 5 feet-11½, 186 pounds. Athletic analyst Dane Brugler’s project said this about Robinson in his annual management project:
A two-year UCF starter, Robinson played nickel in the scheme of defensive coordinator Randy Shannon, ranking mostly against the slot receiver, while seeing replays from the outside. After three undescribed seasons to start his college career (one in Alabama, two in UCF), he won All-AAC medals in the last two seasons with 20 assists protected in 22 games. Robinson is a fast, emergency athlete with excellent cornering and running skills to stay in phase with the speed of the route. He reacts quickly to find football, but his mental process is not the strength of his game. Overall, Robinson needs to add more discipline and anticipation to his style of play, but he boasts athleticism and endurance at the NFL level with internal / external flexibility to play different roles in NFL secondary.
In his profile for potential customers of Robinson, Chris Pflum from BBV writes:
“UCF corner Aaron Robinson designed as the starting corner of the slot at the NFL level with the ability to play outside the cornerback if necessary. He has the ability to play confidently in a person’s coverage or area, although he probably shouldn’t be compared to more athletic receivers in a person’s coverage as often.
“Robinson may also have upwards in safety, but he will have to show continuous improvement in technique and consistency.
“Robinson’s lack of ball production may be overlooked by some, but he must be a reliable starter with the ability to refuse a game if he doesn’t turn the ball straight. He saw that his production had taken a slight step back in his last year, but it had more to do with the opposition of the quarterbacks who avoided him than any regression by Robinson. “
