2015 NFL Draft Pick: RB Josh Robinson, Miss St.


Josh Robinson is a bowling ball like running back from Mississippi State. Dak Prescott, the running quarterback, got much of the credit for the Bulldogs’ success but Robinson was possibly the key.

Robinson did not become the workhorse he is until his junior season in 2014. This makes him appealing to the NFL scouts because he has less wear and tear than some other running back prospects. In 2014 he had 1,203 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, averaging 6.3 yards per carry. An outstanding receiving back, he caught 28 passes with an average of 13.2 yards per reception in 2014.

The productive running back has a low center of gravity, he is only 5-9. The 215 lbs. Robinson bounces off contact and can shrug off any arm tackle.

  • Good speed
  • Gets yard after contact
  • Excellent receiver out of the backfield
  • Low center of gravity
  • Balance and surprising strength


  • Not a very patient runner
  • Not incredibly elusive

Robinson is a really entertaining running back to watch. He is not an unstoppable force, he is not a Todd Gurley like player; he is a persistent running back who churns out tough yards. Robinson is a very solid running back.

Robinson would be more productive than Rashad Jennings or Andre Williams would be for the New York Giants. This is certainly a player the Giants will want to keep their eyes on. The rushing attack for the Giants just isn’t good enough and one must wonder how much of this we can blame on the offensive line.
