Wan'Dale Robinson isn't a big target, but he's explosive whenever he has the ball in his hands, which is why he probably won't last too long in the 2022 NFL Draft. After starting his college career at Nebraska, Robinson transferred to Kentucky where he blossomed as a receiver. His combination of athleticism, agility, and instincts should help fit into any offensive scheme.

Wan'Dale Robinson Draft Profile
He’s a shifty and explosive mover who was often unstoppable in space. He’s at his best as an underneath threat, where his fluid hips and ability to change directions without throttling down allows him to create easy separation. He shows good instincts and helps his QB through body language on option routes. He has a naturally low center of gravity to go along with the agility and twitchy athleticism that make him a handful after the catch. He has the play speed to stretch the field as well.
Robinson is a diminutive receiver with a small catch radius, and he will never be a contested-catch threat against NFL defenders. His speed is good but not elite.
Robinson fits the mold of the new breed of slot receiver, capable of winning underneath and of threatening downfield.
Final Grade: 2nd/3rd Round
