After a week filled with many Spartans drawing high praise, the final Spartan continued the trend.
Trenton Robinson participated in workouts Tuesday, the final day and the day for defensive backs, and made the most of the drills at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Sports Illustrated’s Tony Pauline said. “His 40 time clocked in the low 4.5-second range, his broad jump measured 12 feet, 5 inches and Robinson showed cornerback-type skills during drills.“Robinson was one of the top safeties to perform on Tuesday,”
“He was quick-footed in every direction and showed a terrific burst to the ball in every direction.”
Robinson’s broad jump ranked fourth among safeties, while his 4.52 40-yard dash put him second.
“Michigan State safety Trenton Robinson, he gives 110%. 4.4 (ish) speed, nice reserve and special teamer there,” Draft Countdown’s Shane P. Hallam said.
Hallam added he thought Robinson helped himself with his performance and he should get noticed more.
Robinson also benched 225 pounds 15 times, had a vertical leap of 35.0 inches and a time of 4.15 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle.
“A safety with kind of a corner’s build. He is going to get some hard looks. Cause he has got some movement skills and is not afraid to strike you either,” Charley Casserly said on air.
Dion Caputi of National Football Post said Robinson “cemented good mid-rd value” in the fourth or fifth-round range.
That’s it for the Combine, but the six Spartans who participated and many more will take part in MSU’s pro day on March 14.
