Giants Roster Breakdown: Adrien Robinson

Adrien Robinson - Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

Adrien Robinson is next on our list of players as we continue to break down the Giants' 90-man roster.

Adrien Robinson was a non-entity for the New York Giants in 2012. Can he change that in 2013? Let's look at the second-year tight end today as we continue our player-by-player breakdown of the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training camp.

2012 Season In Review

This was largely a wasted season for Robinson in terms of getting on the field. He missed OTAs and mini-camp due to the late graduation date of his class at Cincinnati, fell behind in his learning curve as a result and was active in only two games, playing just two offensive snaps all season. The fourth-round pick admitted that last season was "a little frustrating" but added that he "learned a lot."

2013 Outlook

Robinson should find his way onto the field much more this season, especially if Bear Pascoe has to open the season playing fullback in place of the injured Henry Hynoski. Robinson believes he will "definitely be on the field" this season.

"I feel like I've come a long way from last year as far as understanding the offense and assignment," Robinson said. ""I was drafted, so I feel like they want me here to make plays."

Robinson should see action as the second tight end behind Brandon Myers, possibly more often in a blocking role than a pass receiving one. Tight ends coach Mike Pope is optimistic, saying during the offseason that Robinson had "gone into the Land of the Believers."

Tight end has been a revolving door for the Giants in recent seasons. The 2013 campaign should tell us whether Robinson might be the player who ultimately could put an end to that constant shuffling.
