He got selected in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. After four years in Detroit, the Rams signed Robinson as a free agent to a two-year contract in 2020. Robinson assisted the Rams to its first Super Bowl Championship last season since 1999. The 6-foot-4, 330-pounder totaled 67 tackles, two tackles for loss, two sacks, and two forced fumbles.
Los Angeles is having a tough year at 3-7, but Robinson has 42 tackles — including two stops for loss.
He came to the University of Alabama as a five-star in the 2013 class from Fort Worth, Texas.
Robinson propelled Alabama’s defense to three Southeastern Conference Championships (2014-16) and a College Football Playoff National Championship in 2015. He earned Consensus All-American honors in 2015 after having 46 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, two pass breakups, 10 quarterback hurries, one fumble recovery, and a blocked field goal.
