    Hummmmm, no mention of the Vikes talking with him. Maybe it was in an earlier entry.

    It is Robison!

    I've seen it spelled that way & as Robinson.

    NFL teams have to be careful not to put too much stock in the scouting combine workouts. But it was tough not to notice Texas defensive end Brian Robison this year. For what it's worth, which might not be much, here is how Robison, the 102nd overall draft pick, compared to Clemson defensive end Gaines Adams, the fourth overall pick:


    40-yd
    dash
    20-yd
    dash
    10-yd dash
    225-lb bench
    vertical jump
    broad jump
    three cone
    20 shuttle

    Adams
    4.65
    2.71
    1.6
    21
    35
    9-11
    7.17
    4.36


    Robison
    4.68
    2.67
    1.5
    27
    40.5
    10-1
    6.9
    4.26

    Had Robison had 13.5 sacks like Gaines did he would have been a top pick but he got 5.5 sacks and battled injuries last season. The guy has mad skill, i watched him open field tackle Adrian Peterson twice and thats no easy task.

    Moving up to take this guy makes sense, Childress likes guys who work there tails off. He's one and so is Tavaris Jackson. They have outstanding work ethic.

    Re: Brian Robison Draft Diary

    The more I read about Robison the more I'm delighted we moved up to get him; especially as it seems we're not the only team who wanted him, Tony Dungy said he would've drafted him had he been available when the Colts were on the clock.
