Kyle’s Instant Evaluation

Josh Robinson is a running back that really gained steam as an NFL prospect in his junior season at Mississippi State. That was the year Robinson finally got the the full work load and boy did he produce. He ran for 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns. Not having the wear and tear during his first two seasons with the Bulldogs could prove valuable as he heads to the NFL.
