2011 Spartan Nation Football Profile: #39 S Trenton Robinson
Expectation:Â All Big Ten S, Starting S Defensive Captain
Height:Â Â 5â€™10â€
2011 Eligibility:Â SeniorÂ
EXP:Â 3 letters
Status:Â Starting S, All Big Ten S (pre season)
Strengths:Â Against WMU there was 11:38 left in the second quarter and the Broncos had a third and eight at their own 28.Â Robinson was play S across the field.Â Using his great vision and field awareness, Robinson makes a great read, comes across the middle, and delivers an earth rattling devastating blow.Â It was a thing of beauty and is precisely why he will be drafted in the 2012 NFL draft.Â He has all of the intangibles to play at the next level.
Weakness:Â Against Notre Dame in the third quarter the Irish faced a second and seven at their own 36 with 4:47 left in the quarter.Â He came running up on a play to make a tackle and didnâ€™t break down properly (good technique) and the Irish got the first down.Â Robinson plays with the heart of a giant, but he doesnâ€™t have the 6â€™2â€ or 3â€ 210# prototypical S body.Â He has to stay on technique.Â He usually does.Â This is just an example of what happens when he doesnâ€™t.
Final Analysis:Â Robinson is as talented as they come.Â What makes him special is that he has the talent and the heart.Â He loves the game of football and is just a top flight young man.Â I canâ€™t wait to see the season he is going to have.Â He is one of those rare talents that gets better every game and it shows in meaningful ways.Â I expect his teammates to vote him the defensive captain.
