This is about two years ago. There is no way Darrelle Revis is 10th; he should be either #1 or 2. As for Robinson, his last two years have not been very good (especially last year, he was horrible). I hope TD did some real homework on him if he is coming to ATL.

Just FYI... here are the Scouts Inc Insider comments on Robinson:

2009 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.

Grade: 78 | Key

Comment: Robinson has been a starter for virtually all five years he has been in the league. He missed the last third of the 2007 season with a knee injury and came back for the seventh game of the 2008 season regaining his starting spot by Week 12. He has lined up at strong safety while in college and plays bigger than he measures. He is exceptionally quick in a small area and has excellent top-end speed. He is fluid in his hips and can transition out of his pedal without stalling. He has a good burst to drive on the ball and will show an extra gear when he needs to catch up. He can extend the cushion with his pedal and flips his hips to turn and run with ease or any loss of speed. He is better in tight man coverage than when in off coverage and has a tendency to peek into the backfield more than you'd like. He has good ball skills when in the area to make a play on the ball and good leaping ability to compensate for his lack of size.

I only see one negative thing in there about him and a good db coach can fix that. I like what they say about him physically though he seems like he can be lined one on one with a lot of receivers.
