Darrell Robertson

Recommended Posts

Here's a little info from the 2008 combine about Robertson.

In 50 games at Georgia Tech, Robertson started 28 contests. He recorded 108 tackles (69 solo) with 11 1/2 sacks for minus 73 yards, 25 stops for losses of 113 yards and 26 quarterback pressures. On 101 running plays directed at him, the opposition gained only 33 yards (0.33-yard avg) with one first down. He also stopped opposing ballcarriers at the line of scrimmage 10 times. He produced 37 third-down stops and two more on fourth-down. He recovered two fumbles, returning one 32 yards for a touchdown and caused three fumbles. He deflected five passes and returned an interception 28 yards for a touchdown.

Compares To: JASON TAYLOR-Miami...Some teams feel that Robertson lacks the bulk to face up to the bigger offensive tackles at the next level, but, like Taylor, Robertson is blessed with excellent quickness, good balance and body control and very active hands to counter. He is best playing on the move, as his bulk issues do come into play when trying to combat double teams, but he has that lateral agility and closing burst to get serious consideration as a strong-side linebacker or edge rusher. Those experts that might question his ability to stuff the run need to digest this fact -- in 101 running plays, the opponents have gained only 33 yards and one first down against him.
