    What I love about Robinson which I think he is better/equal than the other 2 at goes as follows.

    1. He not that much smaller than either Evans/Benjamin
    2. Solid hands
    3. Way better route running
    4. Fits the mold with WR screens/slants/double moves and can burn CBs
    5. Better in the open field

    To me, he is a more polished WR than Evans(even though Evans isn't a scrub) or Benjamin, kind of like M. Lee is coming out. The only thing that people overlook and want Evans/Benjamin is for the extra 1-2 inches maximum.

    Take a look at Robinson tape on youtube or any other source that you can get to watch this kid. He attacks the ball in mid air like he is 6'7. He adjusts as good as any WR in the country with underthrown and bad passes.

    YES, I AM A HOMER. But, this kid is getting way overlooked imho.

    If the Steelers trade out of 15, Robinson will be a Steeler come draft day.

    I would be happy with any of the 3, but I will get flamed for this.

    1. Evans
    2. Robinson
    3. Marqise Lee
    4. Mathews
    5. Benjamin
    I like Robinson I look at him as the closest we come to being able to draft Sammy Watkins, to me they kind of play alike. Haven't watched alot of either but from what i've seen they have the same type of game.


    I like Evans but I think he is what he's going to be, i'm worried he might be maxed out. I can't see him getting much better in the league compared to Benjamin. Thats not a knock on Evans i'd just rather have Benjamin for a number of reasons.

    I agree with Real Deal on Lee I would turn off the draft if that was the receiver we picked early , I mean they wouldn't care but it would make me feel good for those 5 minutes that it's off lol.

    I wouldn't go that far lol. Though he's toward the top of my "realistic" wishlist.

    Can you explain why?? If he wasn't 6'5, what else do you like about him more than any other receiver in the draft?

    Just asking.

    I will say that you guys are making a compelling argument for Benjamin. If he runs in the 4.4's, he would be the type of guy a team out the blue might move up for.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Benjamin is very, very unpolished. Ceiling as high as anyone, but his floor is probably, I don't know, Stephen Hill? I'd prefer Evans/Robinson/Cooks over him.

    I'm still in Evans camp right now. I want to see what he runs at the combine as well.

    Unofficial 4.59 for Benjamin on his first run. I had him a little faster but that's more or less what I expected. I know it's unofficial and it could go up or down, but I'm good with that.

    I hope he runs in the 4.5's even though he's faster on the field. if he runs a 4.4 we don't stand a chance of picking him at 15. SN. could you imagine Sammy Watkins on the other side of Calvin Johnson? They're finally in the position to get him some help.

    I agree. I'm glad he didn't run a sub 4.5.
