The Las Vegas Raiders need to address cornerback if they hope for their defense to be competitive in 2020. Tulsa’s Reggie Robinson could help their defensive secondary turn the corner.
Raider Nation can agree that the need for help in the secondary is very real and with five picks within the first ninety, it could come. Let’s take a look at a player who maybe not be a Day One starter, but his size and ability could provide much needed depth, Reggie Robinson.

Robinson has good size, standing at 6’1″ and weighing 205 pounds, he’s a physical corner running a 4.4 40-yard dash. Last season at Tulsa, he had 38 tackles and four interceptions along with 13 passes defensed. He did have an injury shortened junior year, but as stated before, he was able to bounce back and received All AAC First team honors.
- Size and strength
- Good hitter for a corner
- Good at being disruptive in coverage
- Aggressive in press coverage when needed
- Ball skills show up quickly
- A bit grabby if he gets beat
- Footwork can be off at times
- Technique needs some work
- Does not show make up speed
- Needs to work at beating blocks
Robinson could be a bit of a project, but he has continued to trend up and improve with a very solid season in 2019. He has good length and being physical will definitely be a plus, but the make up speed could pose problems. If he’s able to keep up with his receiver within the sidelines or red zone areas, he can definitely cause issues to opposite offenses. He has continued to improve and has shown a motor and a desire to get better, he’d provide depth and possibly be an option at corner going forward.
