Redskins Select Evan Royster, RB From Penn State And Aldrick Robinson, WR From SMU

Posted by Matt Terl on April 30, 2011 – 4:05 pm

With back-to-back picks in the sixth round, the Redskins took a couple more skill-position guys. First up, with the 177th pick overall, was Penn State RB Evan Royster, who grew up in Fairfax, Virginia. He became Penn State’s all-time leading rusher last year; I highly recommend this great profile video of him:

With the 178th pick, the Redskins took another wide receiver — their third of this draft — in SMU’s Aldrick Robinson.

Robinson described himself to Kelso Carpenter as “a Steve Smith type”, and has all the speed that would imply. WFAA-TV in Dallas explains:

Robinson also attended the NFL combine in Indianapolis in February where he was tied with the 4th fastest time for wide receivers with a 4.43 forty. SMU head coach June Jones has called him the fastest wide receiver he’s ever coached.

“I think it’s one of my best assets,” Robinson says.”My speed is obviously what everyone knows me for. People probably wouldn’t even look at me because of my size, so speed is a big thing.”

Robinson is the only wide receiver in SMU history with back to back 1,000 yard seasons. Now he has to convince NFL scouts that he can do that in the pros as well.
