And if a football career doesn't work out for him he can always go into plastics.

Coo coo ca-choo indeed. (Although I prefer goo goo gajoob, myself.)

It's nice to see Robinson getting into the system and learning. I kinda question the "adequate straightline speed" thing . . . lol. Isn't being the fastest guy at the NFL combine better than adequate?

Gotta figure Rosenhaus needs his clients to sign since so many of his old high-profile guys are out on the street looking for work.

Regarding Winfield's status, Frazier's on video saying they may use him quite differently this year getting him into the slot role a lot more. He also said they're expecting the depth of the CB rotation to be 10 times better than last year --- duh!

Back to Robinson, I'm looking forward to seeing him on the field and making plays, whether on D or special teams.

Id prefer to keep Winfield in the slot, so I am pleased to hear this. With Winfield in the slot, MN will need Robinson, Carr or Bowman to really step on at RCB, otherwise it will be 2011 Cedric Griffin all over again. No matter how elite your LCB and NCB are, if your RCB is dreadful, that player will get picked on all day.

I just worry though with the technique work Robinson needs to fix, will he be ready to start day 1 at RCB. CB is a position where confidence is really necessary to play well, the last thing the team would want to do is damage his confidence. The speed thing will help, Robinson can get away with having less than ideal technique, simply because his recovery speed and natural athleticism should put him in good position in most occasions.

Its kind of like Sam Shields of the GP Packers. Really raw, undrafted player, but ridiculous speed (i think he ran a low 4.2). He played quite well as a rookie simply relying on natural athleticism, though he struggled last year.

Don't know for sure but it looks like Robinson changed his number to 21 with Asher Allen retiring. Changed his twitter handle to @JROB_2one

Maybe he thought vikedaddy was stalking him. The box of chocolates. The heart shaped welcome cards. The creepy Simon and Garfunkel karaoke recordings. "Hide it in the pantry with your cupcakes."

Kind of like changing your phone number...ya know.

Sweet!

Personally, I like it when fast CB's wear numbers in the 20s. It just seems to make so much sense.

That, plus every time I'd see a CB with #31 running around, I'd think it was Chris Cook, but he's #20 now. Laughing

Confirmation. Robinson changed to 21 and Felder changed to 31

Robinson routinely produced in his three years at UCF. In that time, he recorded 10 interceptions and shutdown the opposition’s best wideouts. One of his most high-profile matchups came in 2010 against Cincinnati Bengals Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green, who was held in check in the Knights 10-6 Liberty Bowl win over Georgia.

Robinson: “For me it gave me a lot of confidence, especially seeing a guy like A.J. do so well this past year. And having the ability to play against him, I was blessed because he’s a great receiver. After studying film on him for weeks he was one of the best and I knew he would be from the get-go. I’m thankful just to have that opportunity.”

I'm just excited to have someone on the field that can chase down Brandon Jacobs in less than 70 yards.

Josh Robinson did not participate in Saturday afternoon’s practice as he nurses the hamstring injury he suffered Friday. The rookie cornerback was in coverage against fellow rookie Jarius Wright on an all-out sprint up the right sideline when he pulled up and began clutching his left hamstring. At this point, Robinson is being labeled as day-to-day. But the Vikings feel as if they dodged a bullet with the rookie only tweaking the hamstring and not suffering any kind of tear.

Phew, as long as it wasnt a tear. Hamstring injuries are very common this time of the year with these guys getting back in football shape. have to be careful, robinson will be vital to the success of the secondary this year. we need someone to lock that rcb spot down to keep Winfield in the slot where he is most effective. Otherwise, if Winfield or Carr have to be relied upon at RCB, it might be a long year.

Quote:
It can be difficult and intimidating at first, but for rookie cornerback Josh Robinson, he has it down. After leaving the University of Central Florida following his junior year, Robinson was confident that he could get a good draw in the 2012 NFL Draft. After posting the best 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine in February, Robinson’s stock grew, especially in Minnesota.

In April, the Vikings used a third-round selection to acquire the speedy defensive back, and Robinson is ready to prove they made the right decision.

The stand out rookie has made a good impression on Minnesota thus far, as the state has likewise on him.


Quote:
“I love singing!” Robinson confessed. “I love singing, that’s something I’ve always loved doing. I wrote a song when I was four, and I still love listening to music. I actually have a cover on YouTube of me doing an Usher song. I was just playing around at the house, my brother dared me to put it online and I did, but that’s one of the things people may not know about me.”


Nice read on Mr. Robinson.
