Strengths

Prototype slot corner. Twitchy athlete. Great feet and change-of-direction skills. Quality length for his size. Very instinctive in coverage. Good play recognition and reaction time. Tough and physical. Aggressive using length in press coverage. Jams at line of scrimmage are quick and accurate. Extremely competitive and confident against any opponent. Great acceleration and burst on the ball. Plus long speed. Fluid hips and transitions in coverage. Phenomenal ball skills and production. Big hitter if given a free shot. Has experience lining up at all three cornerback spots. Should be a very effective slot blitzer. Played well against top competition (including LSU in 2018). Followed six-foot-six Collin Johnson against Texas.

 

Weaknesses

Might project best as a slot-only option despite mostly playing outside in college. Overall frame is thin. Could add more strength. Pushed around some by good blockers at wide receiver. Sometimes gives up too much cushion on in-breaking routes. Doesn’t seem to have a great feel for positioning in zone coverage on the outside.

Conclusion

Overall, Robertson is a tough and instinctive defender that projects as a slot corner in an aggressive scheme at the next level. Especially because of how he fared against top competition, Robertson should provide great value for a team on Day 2 and would be an absolute steal anywhere past that.
