Size is a skill in football.
While it’s a skill it also depends on where a player is trying to make it and their own make up.
We heard about Kyler Murray’s size concerns and all he did was put together one of the most efficient seasons from a quarterback in recent memory on his way to winning Rookie of the Year.
Tyrann Mathieu and Budda Baker also had size concerns, both have been All Pro players in the NFL.
That’s why Amik Robertson is such a fascinating study.
Robertson, a 5-8 187lbs corner out of Louisiana Tech is one of the smallest players on the field every time he takes it.
Yet, every time you watch him play you’d never know that.
Robertson plays with a physicality and recklessness that makes him with one of the most entertaining prospects in the draft.
He has an uncanny awareness for making plays on the ball, similar to Mathieu.
He reminds me of Brent Grimes where he will dare you to come after him. He wants the challenge to be tested.
When you have a player like Robertson on your radar you get excited. He’s not only fun to watch, but endearing and is someone you want to root for.
We’ll see where he lands in the 2020 NFL Draft but most boards have him a top 75 prospect, which means he could be in play at 72 for the Arizona Cardinals.
