Alexander Robinson
Position: RB
Class:  5Sr
School: Iowa State
Conference: Big 12
HT: 5-9
WT: 185
40 Time: 4.55
Biography: "Full-time starter the past two seasons, totaling 22/946/9 on the ground as a senior while adding 26/21/1 as a receiver. Junior totals included career-high rushing numbers of 232/1195/6 with 17/261/3 receiving."

Positives: "Small, elusive ball carrier with terrific instincts. Displays top running vision, immediately finds the running lanes, and quickly gets through them. Runs low to the ground, gets lost behind blockers, and patiently waits for running lanes to develop. Loses little momentum changing direction. Shows patience carrying the ball."

Negatives: Possesses just a short burst of speed and cannot beat defenders into the open field. Can be brought down by a single defender.

Analysis: Robinson was a consistent producer on the college level but lacks the pure size/speed numbers to be anything other than a rotational back at the next level.
