One of the Rams’ biggest needs at this point time is another corner to play opposite Jalen Ramsey. With the loss of Nickell Robey-Coleman to the Eagles, there is also a need to fill that role, as well.
According to Justin Melo over at The Draft Wire, the Rams recently met with Tulsa cornerback Reggie Robinson. The 6’1, 206-pound corner was a four-year starter at Tulsa and topped his career with a First-Team All-American Athletic Conference selection after leading his team with four interceptions and 13 pass breakups. He also finished with 38 total tackles and a pair of fumble recoveries. One of the cooler achievements that Robinson can claim is that he blocked a kicked in each of his four collegiate seasons.

Lance Zierlein admits in Robinson’s draft profile that he believes he lacks the top-end speed necessary to stay in “play-making position” at the next level. Robinson did post a 4.44 in the forty-yard dash, a 36-inch jump in the vertical, and an 11’ mark in the broad so we know he’s not going to be the worst athlete on the field. His 22 reps on the bench press was impressive as, well. He’s got good length and size but Zierlein believes he’s destined to be a back-up and/or relegated to special teams duties.
