NFL Draft 2016: A'Shawn Robinson growls as a Lion

Round 2, Pick 46 to the Detroit Lions!

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Leaving Texas for the Crimson Tide led him down the right road to the NFL draft. Initially committed to Texas, at the last minute the Arlington Height's graduate Robinson decided to take the road to Bryant-Denny Stadium. And it ain't turned out so bad.

A force as a defensive tackle, the 6 foot 4 and 312 pounder has showed a strong ability to block, fill gaps, and close down those running lanes to make sure the Tide keeps its streak of low rushing yards. A College All-American in 2015 and 2014/2015 SEC Champion, in 2015 alone he had 42 Tackles, was 7.5 for a loss, had 3.5 sacks, and 9 QB hurries.

Robinson will be a huge asset to the Lions. Best of luck to Robinson and his team!
