Biography: Robinson definitely helped his draft stock by staying in school all four years. A full-time starter in his final three seasons at Connecticut, the Birmingham, Ala., product improved his numbers across the board as a senior, averaging 14.5 points and 7.6 rebounds while shooting 52.5 percent from the field - all career highs. The scoring average was six points higher than Robinson's output from an underwhelming junior campaign. Curiously, he reached double figures in his first 29 games of 2009-10 before being held below 10 points four times in the final five contests. Robinson possesses a strong perimeter shot for a taller player, having made 74 3-pointers in his career. He struggles a bit from the free-throw line, where he was a 64.6 percent shooter over four years. While Robinson could add a bit of bulk, he is a fantastic overall athlete - a strength that will boost his draft status. His leaping ability makes him a dunker likely to show up frequently on highlight reels. Robinson's defensive reputation is solid but unspectacular - a description that also fits his overall collegiate statistics. However, his experience at a winning program coupled with his athleticism make Robinson a safe bet to be selected in the middle-to-latter stages of the first round.
