One of the best things about Robinson is his ability to go up and get the football in the air is outstanding. I don't know what your metric is of average, but if Robinson is average, then there's really no good jump ball receivers in this draft. I see plenty of amateur draft "profiles" bashing on the guy but the more legit sites seem to be in-line with what the majority of people I hear saying about him and what I've seen myself.
Robinson is a guy who isn't flashy or spectacular but he does a lot of things well, very good route runner, decent hands, even if he does bring the ball close to his body at times, solid blocker downfield blocker. He's got a lower ceiling than most guys, but you largely know what you'll get out of him, a quality #2 receiver, a reliable guy who doesn't need to be coached up a lot, someone who showed a lot of improvement and has been highly productive his past two seasons for a wounded duck program. Just a good all-around receiver. He won't be great, but he won't be bad, he looks to translate to being a good #2 and there's nothing wrong with that.
He's also only 20 years old, meaning he's still physically immature, a guy with room to develop physically, you're talking about a guy who is 2-4 years behind his peers age wise.
