Nickell Robey comes to the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Southern California.  While at USC he was also a track and baseball player.  For track, he was a long jumper and a sprinter.  Two good qualities for a corner back; jumping and running.  His season best for long jump was 23-11 1/2 feet.  Not too shabby.

Robey was a freshman player at USC that was able to start all 13 games with 48 tackles and 4 interceptions, one which was returned for a Touchdown.  He went on to start all 13 games during his sophomore and junior seasons.

Some of his strengths are his is a very quick player that is light on his feet.  He is able to read the quarterback and make quick reactions as well.  His weaknesses include, that he is not the the biggest guy out there.  With a build of 5’7″ and 169 lbs, he is ore on the smaller side.  This can lead to him being pushed around.  He will have to hit the weight room and bulk up a bit to be able to stand his ground.

His NFL comparison but the NFL is that of Captain Munnerlyn.

This is the breakdown the NFL had on him…

Robey is tremendously undersized, but he’s been one of the better cover cornerbacks in the NCAA the past few seasons. Despite his size, Robey is willing to be physical, and he has a good athletic skill set. However, his limitations will likely keep him on the board until the middle of the draft.
