I love Robinson and he played well beyond his years last season but i believe Hunter beats him out for the starting spot. He's an athletic freak and we need him on the field as much as possible.

I think the concept of a starting DE might not be relevant under Zimmer. Basically, I expect Hunter to play a lot more and for both Griffen and Robison to see a reduction in playing time given that the DEs will probably be moved around a lot. The starters will be Hunter and whoever plays more between Griffen and Robison.

I agree with VR. Though I think they'll both play about the same amount of snaps, however Robison will play most of this at DT in passing situations.

at this point, how do you not "start" Danielle Hunter? He's a freak and should only continue to get better.

Robison can rotate with him or Griffen, or the DTs. it's a pretty good situation to be in.

allthough I do think we need a better 4th DE. should be some quality players in the mid round to fill this void.
