Robinson, a senior at running back, eyes an opportunity to have a big year to secure high draft value. He recorded 483 yards rushing with six touchdowns on 91 carries last year.
Metchie, a junior at wide receiver, takes over the No. 1 spot at his position and looks to increase his numbers from 2020. The 6-foot, 195-pounder totaled 55 receptions for 916 yards and six scores.
The Maxwell Award is presented to the player of the year in college football. Since it originated in 1973, AJ McCarron (2013), Derrick Henry (2015), Tua Tagovailoa (2018), and DeVonta Smith (2020) all won the Maxwell Award for Alabama.
