Chop Robinson (Edge)

Robinson is a player who doesn't light up the stat sheet but shows flashes of potential and oozes athletic ability. Robinson's draft stock skyrocketed after his impressive performance at the combine.

Robinson's 40 time was 4.48, has a 34.5-inch vert, and a 4.25-second shuttle. Robinson draws a lot of attention from scouts with his speed, control, and fluid movements, putting him as the third-highest-graded edge rusher in the draft. 

However, there are some weaknesses with Robinson, as he hasn't produced much in college and didn't get a lot of sacks or tackles. It's more of an eye test for Robinson, which he does get lots of pressure on quarterbacks and is a stout run-stopper mainly thanks to his ultra-elite quickness, acceleration, and agility.

The Bills will be weaker at this position, with A.J. Epenesa and Leonard Floyd becoming free agents this offseason. So the Bills would be with an aging Von Miller and an average player in Greg Rousseau as the leading rushers, so the edge rusher is a hole in the offseason.

Robinson could go as early as the mid-first round, or as late as the early second round. He's a high-risk high-reward type of player, which is a risk many teams are willing to take, especially if they have a good coaching staff. The Bills are also known for drafting these players, as Gregory Rousseau is probably the best comparison regarding players with a high ceiling.
