Scouting Report: CB Amik Robertson, Louisiana Tech
Speed/Athleticism: Amik Robertson has good positional speed and is extremely athletic. Shows his athleticism on almost every play. He should test very well at the NFL Combine.
Man/Press Coverage Ability: Robertson generally plays good off-man coverage, but struggles mightily while playing press. Lacks the physicality to jam receivers at the line of scrimmage. He seems to understand that he’s small, and doesn’t want to get beat. He becomes too aggressive to every subtle move on the receiver’s release. Stays well in the hip pocket of the receiver when playing off man.
Zone Coverage Ability: Didn’t play much zone coverage in the Louisiana Tech scheme, but when they did he played satisfactorily. He doesn’t seem to fully understand zone concepts and his role within them.
Ball Skills: Great ball skills. Robertson will make a play on the ball if it’s in his vicinity. Collected 14 career interceptions and defended 34 passes.
Tackling/Pursuit: Robertson does not like to tackle. He gives up bigger gains than really needed because of his unwillingness to tackle. He doesn’t often attempt to wrap up.
Football IQ/Awareness: N/A.
Overall: Amik Robertson is very gifted athletically, but there are two glaring points to his game that would make him a liability on an NFL defense. He’s too small, and he doesn’t like to tackle. These are two major factors to his game, as Robertson would be expected to play as a slot cornerback because of his size. He lacks the physicality to be an impact slot cornerback, and he won’t be much of a support as a run defender. I’m looking at a late day three selection and possibly an undrafted free agent.
