Well, it took four rounds and 127 picks, but the Giants finally took the tight end we all expected them to--Adrien Robinson from Cincinnati. This is a player that visited quite a few teams recently, and his stock kept rising. Here is what Scout.com has to say about Robinson:
Robinson, 23, is extremely athletic at nearly 6-foot-5 and 264 pounds, running the 40-yard dash in 4.51 and 4.58 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout. He registered a 39 1/2 inch vertical leap, an 11-3 broad jump, an 11.59 in the 60-yard shuttle and a 7.11 three-cone drill.
Here is a clip of Robinson catching a 72-yard pass against Miami of Ohio this past season. You have to love how he went up for the ball, fought for it, and then fought for yardage. He should fit in just fine on Tom Coughlin's tough-minded offense.
Now, can we please go get an offensive lineman? Our next pick is very soon, so we will find out momentarily what that pick will be.....
