Denver Broncos: Analyzing every 2021 undrafted free agent
Curtis Robinson, LB, Stanford
You want to talk about intriguing? Former Stanford linebacker Curtis Robinson is exactly that.
In his last 15 games at Stanford (four in 2020, 11 in 2019), Robinson racked up a total of 92 tackles, 3.0 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks, four passes broken up, and two forced fumbles.
At 6-foot-3, 235 pounds, that kind of production will certainly draw your attention. If that doesn’t do it, Robinson’s pro day workout will.
In terms of size and athleticism, Robinson has a 99 percent comp to 49ers linebacker Fred Warner, who has obviously developed into a star in the NFL.
Let’s not be too hasty here — Robinson is not necessarily going to come into the NFL and just be Fred Warner, but the size, athletic profile, and productivity in all phases certainly lead you to believe he could be a diamond in the rough.
Like a number of other draft picks in this Denver Broncos class, Robinson was a very highly touted high school recruit, a five-star prospect in 2015 who chose Stanford over basically any other possible school.
He had a blocked punt early on in his career, so there is some special teams intrigue and upside here as well.
Overall, Robinson is one undrafted player Denver Broncos fans should be pretty excited about if he can stay healthy.
