Re: Pats should get UDFA Robertson from GTech
Well, I guess I'm gullible too. Robertson was my sleeper pick at the DE/OLB position. He was among Avril and Crable as my favorite options after round one.
NFLDraftscout had him projected as a 2-3 round pick. Kiper, at one time had him in his top 25.
No doubt his injury played a role in him not being drafted, as he was unable to work out at the Combine and Pro Day, nor did he have any private workouts. But still, there's enough film on him to think he'd be drafted (considering his projection). So it remains a mystery as to why he wasn't.
I've certainly been wrong about many prospects before, but as a sleeper pick...let's just say I'm extra curious as to what the real scoop may be (
BTW -- the Cowboys just signed him.
"What we want to try to do is maximize each spot on the roster; we want to be stronger at No. 1 than the opponent, stronger at No. 25 than they are, and stronger at No. 53 than they are, we're always looking to upgrade the talent level on the team, and play together to be functional."
