OVERALL

Janarius Robinson was a highly recruited prospect who was unable to fully develop at Florida State, a recent theme with the team, which has had three head coaches since 2017. He has bend and length but not the quickness and technique of a starting-caliber defensive end. His snaps out of a two-point stance signal he should be a defensive end, where he should be a backup player early on with the potential to be a mid-level starter down the line.

       

GRADE: 7.21/10 (Round 4)

OVERALL RANK: 134/300

POSITION RANK: EDGE21

PRO COMPARISON: Devin Taylor
