Robinson's game tape

I just watched espns motion tape on every defensive prospect they had on the board. Only two really jumped out at me. Robinson and Taylor.

Taylor looks unbelievable. I know he's going to be a top 5 pick and he rightfully should be. Size, speed, hands, hitting this guy has it all. I knew he was good but after watching his tape I think he's the best defensive prospect I've seen in a while. Whoever gets Taylor will be very lucky.

Robinson is widley considered as the #2 cb prospect, but in the tapes I saw he looks far better than hall or any other cb in the draft. He shows the speed to recover and has a sense for the ball. If the saints have the chance to get him they should even if they have to move up a couple of spots. Judging by those tapes I think he could jump right in and start for us.

I have liked DUNTA from the begining. I think him being the lesser \"known\" makes him moer hungry to prove his worth at the next level. There has been alot of talk how none of the corners in this draft can compair with the corners from last and I\'m sure they would like to show otherwise.

It\'s on espn\'s nfl page under the Manning article. It says Motion: See the top prospects. All you have to do is click on the player you want to see. Really good stuff.

Robinson did look impressive in those clips. I\'m also a fan of Will Poole.

I\'ll say it again, though, I think Sean Taylor is the best player in this draft.

I really like what i saw from Dunta Robinson. Did you see the way he knifed through the line and caught that running back? That pretty incredible. I hope he somehow falls to us at 18. I have to agree with turbo_dog about Taylor though. He is amazing, a human highlight reel.

Hands down Taylor\'s the man in this draft. Some team will be very lucky come saturday.

As for Robinson....the kid can flat out play. Those highlights showed a lot. Man...I would be excited if the Saints could get him.

Somebody make sure that ChRxis sees the tapes of Robinson. He was the one that kept insisting that Robinson did nothing at SC and the only reason he is gonna be a first round pick is because of his workout. Robinson clearly made several fantastic plays last year and maybe now ChRxis will be convinced. Thanks Spanky.

jim, let\'s bury this idea, OK? i\'m not saying that robinson was garbage in college, he wasn\'t... but, before the combine, he could have been had at the bargain of a 2nd rd pick. now, after the combine, he\'s the 2nd rated CB in the draft... not b/c he played better, but b/c he ran and lifted better. there isn\'t any bench presses out on the field and he\'s not gonna be in shorts on gameday... but, let it be shown that i think dunta is a great, not just good, prospect... just not for us.... we\'d be fine at least for this season with keith smith or derrick strait or just a \"patch\" on our tire for 1 more year.

Robinson and Hall have been the top two corner prospects since way before the combine. I\'ve been looking at player profiles and mock drafts since January and they have (along with Chris Gamble until the last month) been the only CBs to project in the first twenty picks.
