The NFL scouts love Robinson, who is racking up preseason honors and is one of the most versatile and talented defensive linemen in the country. He’s a bit raw, and needs to make more plays in the backfield in 2015, but plenty of analysts see him as a potential top-10 pick in the 2016 NFL draft if he leaves early. At 6-foot-3 and approximately 315 pounds, he can play nose tackle, 3-4 defensive end or can be more of a traditional defensive tackle when Alabama goes to a four-man front look. Alabama has several questions that make the Tide more vulnerable this season, but if UT can’t consistently block this front seven that includes Ragland and Robinson, the Vols won’t be able to contend in Tuscaloosa this year.
