Robinson’s decision to sign with Athletes First and David Dunn appears to have paid off with his performances in the past two months. Following the Cotton Bowl, the 6-foot-2, 214-pounder spent several weeks in California working out and competing daily with Texas quarterback Colt McCoy and safety Earl Thomas, Missouri linebacker Sean Weatherspoon and others. That helped Robinson prepare mentally to face the best at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine.
"That was a big reason why I chose Dave Dunn and Athletes’ First,” he said. "They get the top guys. I liked it from a quarterback standpoint to throw with other quarterbacks. It was a lot of fun the last couple of months, and you definitely learn a lot about yourself.”
Okung solidifies status
After being unable to complete all the drills at the NFL Combine, tackle Russell Okung seemed to solidify his position as the top tackle available. He recorded a 32.5 vertical jump and a broad jump of 8-feet, 9-inches on Wednesday. Both performances would have ranked among the top 10 at the NFL Combine. Okung didn’t complete all the drills at the Combine after tweaking his groin.
"I’m not trying to separate myself individually,” Okung said. "I’m just trying to do what I do best and compete. If they like what they see, then they like what they see.”
