    I am a DE/OLB from Texas, I need a good home. One where I can contribute on special teams in year 1, and then in years 2-4 I could work as part of a rotation at OLB. My daddy also thinks I am versatile enough to potentially play ILB like Mike Vrabel. If you take me into your home in round 3 (reach) or round 4 (value) I will pay you back with constant hustle and position flexibility.

    Name: Brian Robison - College: Texas
    Height: 6031 - Weight: 259
    40 Yrd Dash: 4.67
    20 Yrd Dash: 2.65
    10 Yrd Dash: 1.49
    225 Lb. Bench Reps: 27
    Vertical Jump: 40 1/2
    Broad Jump: 10'1"
    20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.26
    3-Cone Drill: 6.89

    In 49 games at Texas, I started 36 times (three at inside linebacker, 33 at right end). I recorded 181 tackles (106 solos) with 15 sacks for minus-121 yards and 41 stops for losses totaling 171 yards. I also added 57 quarterback pressures, a two-yard interception return and eight pass deflections. I caused four fumbles and recovered two others, advancing one recovery nine yards. He also blocked six kicks.

    In High School I was an all state (Texas) while playing LB.

    My strengths are:
    - linebacker experience dropping back into pass coverage, I could provide value standing up in a 3-4 alignment...Might not win all of his battles, but I have a hard charge chasing from the back-side, I display proper body lean off the corner...Adequate at flushing the quarterback out of the pocket and showed improvement in 2006 using hands to control and adjust off blocks.

    My weaknesses are:
    Some say I am not a viable option as a full-time linebacker, as I don't show the range to change direction and an instant and chase down plays along the sidelines... <<< I say look at my combine numbers to get a sense of what kind of athlete I am! >>>
    Durability issues in 2006 limited his effectiveness (right knee and leg might need further medical evaluation). <<< I say my 2006 injury is the only reason you have a shot at me in round 2, in our 2005 national championship season I lead the team with 7 sacks >>>

    I compare to BRYCE FISHER-Seattle <<< whoever that is >>>

    You seem to have two personalities, will this affect your play? I also understood you to have started at ILB in high school, in addition to your three starts at Texas?

    I've heard you...
    ...though your reported...
    ...still, I'm happy to note you had a productive career...
    I also thought you looked very fluid in linebacker drills at the combine, but need to borrow Asante's nerf ball.

    Is it true you spell your name R O B I S O N one N? How weird is that? :p

    So Brian...

    You seem to be very athletic, evidenced by your 40 1/2 vertical jump, 6 blocked kicks, and record-holding track and field background. As the Big 12's defending outdoor champion in the shot put and the discus, do you plan on skipping track this spring to concentrate on the NFL draft.

    I understand you'd like to resume your track workouts after you get established in the NFL and make a run at the 2008 Summer Olympics -- is this correct?

    Editor's note: One scout suggested Robison has a higher upside than former Texas defensive end Tony Brackens, who played nine seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars and appeared in a Pro Bowl. In addition, several New England Patriots' fans feel he has the potential to adequately replace Tully Banta-Cain, a former day two pick, where Robison is also projected.
