Aaron Robinson has the potential to be great
The New York Giants certainly have some young players that could turn out to be great down the line.
Brad Gagnon of Bleacher Report has named a project player that every NFL team has that is the most intriguing heading into the upcoming season. For the Giants it’s 2021 third round pick, cornerback Aaron Robinson.
The new buzz related to the New York Giants’ future is of course focused on early draft picks Kadarius Toney and Azeez Ojulari, but both of them are pro-ready and should play major roles right off the bat.
With most of the team’s early 2019 and 2020 picks also expected to be big factors as the Giants wrap up a rebuild, that leaves cornerback Aaron Robinson as the one to watch for the future.
The UCF product will likely have to compete with sophomore fourth-round selection Darnay Holmes for a slot role in support of presumed starters James Bradberry and Adoree’ Jackson, both of whom make big money.
The smooth and physical Robinson has the length and instincts to turn into a strong starter, but rookie corners almost always need time, and he lacks the speed to compensate for the work he’ll have to do early on.
Robinson is a versatile player that some people believe can play safety if need be. This season he will compete with second-year corner Darnay Holmes for the Giants’ starting nickel corner spot. Whether Robinson wins the job or not, he will be a huge help for New York with the depth that he will provide for them heading into a regular season that now has a total of 17 games.
