OVERVIEW

Much like his father, Terry, a former NFL player and present assistant coach with Atlanta, Brian is the consummate team player. Having grown up in a football environment, he showed great maturity upon his arrival on OSU's campus as a true freshman, nailing down a spot on special teams while patiently waiting his turn behind a veteran laden receiving unit.

As a sophomore, he forced his way into the lineup for five games before finally getting his opportunity as a full-time starter during his junior and senior campaigns. Blessed with what scouts feel are some of the best hands in the collegiate ranks, he went on to haul in 127 passes, the eighth-best career total by a Buckeye. His 1,866 yards receiving also put him on Ohio State's Top Ten List.

It was the importance of those catches that made Robiskie stand out, as 24 of his receptions were good for touchdowns, the fourth-highest total in school history. In addition to his exploits on the football field, he did just as well in the classroom, becoming a Draddy Award finalist, earning an $18,000 post-graduate scholarship from the National Football Foundation.

At Chagrin Falls High School, Robiskie earned first-team All-Ohio honors as a senior. He set school career receiving records with 118 catches for 1,885 yards and 34 touchdowns. As a senior, he snatched 47 passes as a senior for 754 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also scored on a 95-yard punt return and an interception return and averaged 14.9 yards per punt return, leading the squad to a 9-3 overall record and the conference championship in 2004.

Robiskie was used mostly on special teams during his first year at Ohio State, playing in all twelve contests. On his only reception for the season, he showed the greatness to come, catching the ball in a crowd and then knifing through a pair of would-be tacklers before what looked like the entire San Diego State team taking him down on a 13-yard grab.

Patiently waiting for his chance to play on offense, Robiskie shared split end duties with Roy Hall in 2006, where he was part of a receiving corps that featured future NFL first rounders, Ted Ginn Jr. and Anthony Gonzalez. He finished third on the squad with 29 receptions for 383 yards (13.2 avg) and five touchdowns.

With Hall also off to the National Football League, Robiskie became the team's featured receiver in 2007, starting all thirteen games at split end. He earned Academic All-American honors and despite being a semi-finalist for the Biletnikoff Award and a finalist for the Arthur Ashe Sports Scholar Award, the team's Paul Warfield Award winner (given to the outstanding receiver) received just one first-team All-Big Ten Conference honor, coming from The NFL Draft Report.

That year, the junior led the Buckeyes with 55 receptions for 935 yards (17.0 avg) and eleven touchdowns. His receptions placed him on the OSU season Top Ten List, while his receiving yardage ranks eleventh on annual charts and his scoring grabs were good for fourth on the Buckeyes season-record list. He also tried his hand as a punt returner, gaining 60 yards on seven attempts (8.6 avg).

With a freshman quarterback at the helm, receiving opportunities were limited for Robiskie and the rest of the receiving unit in 2008. The two time Academic All-American and Paul Warfield Award winner was named an All-Big Ten Conference honorable mention. He led the team again, pulling down 42 passes for 535 yards and eight touchdowns. On special team action, he had an 11-yard kickoff return and 17 yards on four punt returns (4.2 avg).

SCOUTING REPORT

GENERAL REPORT

Body Structure

Robiskie has a lean frame that lacks ripped muscle tone, but he can carry at least another ten pounds without the added bulk affecting his overall quickness. He has a tight midsection with an adequate bubble and adequate arm length. He needs to further develop his thigh and calf thickness, but has a tight waist and hips with minimal body fat.

Athletic Ability            

Robiskie lacks blazing speed, but shows valid quickness and a long stride to get behind the cornerback. He shows good agility and balance to weave through traffic and the hip flexibility and change of direction movement to slip into and settle in the field's soft areas. He has just an adequate burst and acceleration, but has learned to use his reach effectively to keep defenders off his body in attempts to reroute him. He might not have the speed to challenge deep, but he is an athletic mover with the stride to get into his routes smoothly. He lacks ideal upper body strength to shock and opponent on the press, but he uses his hands effectively to prevent from being rerouted coming off the snap. What you do see on film is that he has enough change of direction agility and loose hips to elude in the open field. He will revert to running a bit straight-legged at times, but when he stays low in his pads, he maintains adequate acceleration throughout his patterns. He shows the hand/eye coordination to get to the ball at its high point and the size and body control to time his leaps and contort his body to get to the tough throws in a crowd. He compensates for a lack of suddenness by contorting and making acrobatic moves to get to most balls thrown to him…GRADE-7.0

Football Sense            

With Robiskie, you get a field savvy type who rarely blows assignments. He is a good student of the game, growing up in a football environment. He has no problems dealing with the mental aspect of the game. He understands all three receiver position assignments (started his career as a split end, moving to flanker as a senior, where he also played in the slot) and does a very good job adjusting in his routes when on the move. He can make a nice living just based off his feel for the soft spot in the zone, quickly settling into it. He shows very good sideline vision, keeping his balance and feet in bounds. He is also quite effective at setting up defensive backs down field. He knows the playbook inside/out and shows quick instincts to come back for the ball when the quarterback is pressured…GRADE-7.8

Character                    

Robiskie is a quiet, very respectful sort that comes from a strong family environment. He is a "yes sir, no sir" type that is all business in his approach to football, both on and off the field. He is not the typical college kid who wants to "party," showing the maturity you look for in a quality character. He has no known off-field issues and improving all areas of his game is important to him, putting in the extra hours it takes in the film room and after practices. He is well-liked by the staff and has a great attitude, taking a leader-by-example approach in the locker room…GRADE-8.0

Competitiveness                     

Robiskie likes to mix it up with the defenders, but that sometimes frustrates the staff, because he becomes so intent on beating his man, he is taken out of the play. He needs to reduce those confrontations at the next level to prevent foolish penalties. He loves the contact when going over the middle and shows true courage sacrificing his body to get to the most difficult tosses (see 2008 Youngstown State 31-yarder and Troy 38-yard catch). He is very physical down near the goal line and uses his hands well to prevent the cornerback from riding up on his body. He shows willingness to get to the poorly thrown ball and never, ever takes plays off. He plays hurt and does like to hear his number called in pressure situations (see 2008 Wisconsin fumble recovery and 2006 game-winning catch vs. Michigan)…GRADE-7.2

Work Habits                

Robiskie is described by the staff as being a very good worker, a self-made type that will spend a lot of his spare time working on all aspects of his game. He is well respected by the staff and teammates and while not a vocal leader, the younger players do listen to him (took QB Terrelle Pryor under his wing). He has that attitude to succeed that makes it very easy for the staff to coach him. He will do whatever it takes, whether in the training room, film room, practices and games to improve his performance level…GRADE-7.2


ATHLETIC REPORT…GRADE-6.83

Release                       

Robiskie lacks good speed, but glides to top acceleration nicely. He knows how to use his frame to prevent defenders from rerouting him, despite needing to add more strength to compete at the next level. He can threaten deep vs. off coverage and while he is not overly strong, he shows a smooth open field stride, along with effective head and shoulder fakes to fool and con the defender. He doesn't have that sudden explosion to leave defenders rocking back on their heels, but shows the savvy and hand usage to gain good separation coming off the snap…GRADE-6.4

Acceleration    

Robiskie is the type of player who compensates for a lack of blazing speed with physical play. He comes off the line with a strong surge and uses his hands with force to beat the jam. He has the size to shield defenders from the ball and is a physical presence in the middle of the field. He might not run the crispest of routes, but he does a decent job of dropping his hips and sinking his weight to separate out of his cuts. He has a smooth slide to get to the open zone and a decent second gear to quickly eat up the cushion. He shows the body lean and hand push to play off the cornerback to track and grab the ball without breaking stride. He plays the ball nicely when it is in flight and adjusts to make the tough grabs along the sidelines. He runs mostly underneath and intermediate routes, but still needs to be accounted for, as he is too slippery for a defensive back to get lethargic thinking he can give him a big cushion…GRADE-6.3

Quickness                   

Robiskie showed better acceleration and thrust in his get-off as a senior, but knows he has to execute moves to compensate for a lack of suddenness. His problem is that he is not really quick out of his breaks. He is really just a long strider with decent initial quickness, but not one with blazing speed. He has the burst agility to get off the ball and the hand usage to defeat the jam, but it is his cutting ability and steady acceleration that allows him to gain advantage and run by the defensive backs. He is good settling underneath, making him a nice target in the short area. His balance and good feet let him deal with operating in tight spaces…GRADE-6.4

Route Running

Robiskie is used more on control routes underneath, but shows good flexibility turning and running with the ball. He will take too many soft angle cuts than sharp ones on deep patterns, though. He is very good planting and driving in and out of his breaks. His ability to separate out of his up field cuts allows him to run crisp vertical routes. He just doesn't have an explosive burst, but he stays square in his routes, especially when coming back to the ball, which he had to do often the last two years due to OSU's QB issues. He is solid on option routes and shows great gliding ability on slant patterns. He is just the rare type of player who can get open simply on his ability to set up defenders and make an effort to be precise in his cuts…GRADE-7.4

Separation Ability                   

If a defensive back become too confident in his own speed, he will give Robiskie a big cushion. That results in the receiver taking advantage of the spacing to set up and con his opponent. He is not the fastest runner and even slower changing direction, but with his fakes to set up and balance on the move, he has decent success getting through traffic. He lacks that extra gear to blow past defenders, but knows how to use his double move to get separation. He does a nice job when trying to stem and weave to avoid, but has only a marginal second gear. When he is played tight, he can hand jolt the defender to rock his opponent back on their heels. He shows great awareness to uncover, using his body to shade defenders from the ball. His deceptive speed is enough to surprise a lethargic defender on vertical routes and his body frame and quick feet lets him get to most poor throws along the sidelines…GRADE-7.4

Ball Concentration      

Robiskie has eyes only for the ball when working in a crowd. He times his leaps well and does a very good job of getting to the pass at its high point. He takes advantage of his frame to jump over defenders for the ball and can take a shot and hang on to the ball (never fumbled as a starter). He is very conscious of sticks and chains. He looks nimble keeping his feet inbounds along the sidelines and makes good body adjustments on the move. With his physical play in the red zone, he certainly knows where the end zone is (see 2008 Minnesota and 2007 Northwestern games). In a crowd, he has good timing on his leaps and is willing to sacrifice his body to get to the ball at its high point. He simply makes the difficult catch due to his above average focus…GRADE-7.5

Ball Adjustment                      

Robiskie is a natural hands catcher, taught by his father to never use his body as a crutch. He does a nice job of looking the ball in, catching it and not breaking stride. He excels at catching outside his framework and shows the vision and agility to adjust to the ball in flight. He shows good flexibility to get to off-target throws and looks natural playing the ball down field. He has the body control to get in position and makes plays over his shoulder look routine. His ability to get to the right spot to make plays, especially on those behind him, makes him a valid threat once he gets the ball into his hands…GRADE-7.2

Leaping Ability            

Robiskie not only has natural leaping ability, but also precision timing going up for the ball. With his timing and body control, he manages to get to most balls thrown his way, especially at going up to pluck them at its high point. He uses his body well to get vertical, thanks to impeccable timing. With his body frame, he should be able to continue to be able to compete for the jump balls…GRADE-7.1

Hands 

Robiskie catches the ball with his hands properly extended and shows the hand/eye coordination to look the ball in, especially when negotiating through the crowd. Robiskie has the wingspan and natural hands to get to any pass thrown his way. He knows how to shield the ball from defenders using his body and shows good scooping agility to get to the low throws. He will extend and pluck the ball away from the body's frame and has soft hands to look the ball in nicely. The thing I like is Robiskie's ability to play the ball over his shoulder and make body adjustments to track the ball in flight. With his natural hands and running stride, he could fill in as a capable punt returner, adding to his pedigree…GRADE-7.1 

Run After the Catch                 

Robiskie knows he has to set up his moves, as he is not going to beat too many secondary people trying to gain yardage after the catch. He turns fluidly heading up field, showing decent change of direction and shake agility, but will need to get stronger in order to break tackles better at the next level…GRADE-5.9

Blocking Ability                      

Robiskie is a good cut blocker for the outside running game, taking proper angles while staying low to take second level defenders off their feet. He gives solid effort facing up to bigger opponents at the line of scrimmage. He likes to stalk, cut, shield and roll block down field better than working at the point of attack, staying with his man until he gets the job done…GRADE-6.4


Compares To:  
AMANI TOOMER-ex New York Giant…Like Toomer in his prime, Robiskie has learned to compensate for his one major shortcoming – a lack of blazing speed - with excellent hands, good body control and outstanding field vision. He is most effective on controlled routes, knowing he will never have the explosiveness to threaten the deep secondary. He is a good chain mover with solid blocking skills, a perfect compliment for a team that already has their established deep threat and is looking for someone to keep defenses honest underneath.

OVERALL GRADE-6.93

PERSONAL

Marketing major, earning Academic All-American honors twice and was a finalist for the 2008 Draddy Award, given for academic excellence…Son of Cynthia and Terry Robiskie…

Father was a standout running back at Louisiana State, becoming the first player in school history to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season (1976) and the first to gain over 2,500 yards for a career (1973-76). Terry was later drafted in the eighth round by the Oakland Raiders. biskie spent five years in the NFL as a running back with the Raiders (1977-79) and the Miami Dolphins (1980-81), while playing for legendary coaches John Madden, Tom Flores and Don Shula. He was a role player, gaining only 553 yards in five seasons. Robiskie was forced to retire after only five seasons due to an injury.
