Robinson, a former defensive tackle at Alabama, was selected in the second-round (No. 46 overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.
He posted 172 total tackles in 58 career games and had five sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, one interception and 16 breakups. The 6-foot-4, 330-pounder had 40 tackles (four for loss), 1.5 sacks, three breakups, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 2019. Robinson was a force in three years at Alabama (2013-15), collecting 133 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, nine sacks and 19 quarterback hurries.
A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Robinson was a consensus All-American in 2015. He was on two Southeastern Conference title teams and a College Football Playoff National Championship squad in 2015.
Hopefully, he will be able to create much success with the Rams.
