Pros:  Good height and upper-body strength. ... Can bull rush and rip from running back/tight end blocks. ... Nice closing speed, runs downhill to attack ballcarriers.

Cons:  Teams will not know whether he's a versatile inside-outside linebacker or a "tweener" until they have him in training camp.

Styg's Broncos Fit:   This guy reminds me eerily of Wesley Woodyard, and that is a damn good thing.  He is a good tackler, reads plays well and is instinctual in following the play to the ball.  Like WW, one of his strongest assets is keeping blockers away from his legs and keeping hands out of his frame, which leaves him free to make the tackle at the line of scrimmage.  His open-field tackling could use work however, as he doesn't consistently break down but he shows a ton of hustle and is quick to congratulate teammates, making him a respected member of the team.  His coverage ability is adequate, though he can't hang very long on deeper routes.  Has all the markings of a late-round, high-impact player.

From "Draft Sleeper at LB?" at Arrowhead Pride:

A powerfully built linebacker with good upper body strength, Robinson knows how to create collisions on contact. He loves to attack downhill, does a nice job closing quickly on the ball and makes plays on all areas of the field. Robinson did a much better job in space than scouts anticipated at the Texas vs. the Nation Bowl. He still is a bit stiff when asked to redirect but does a nice job flipping his hips and staying with receivers out of the backfield. He also lined up as a down defensive end at times. Possesses the first-step quickness and natural leverage to bull rush linemen and get after the quarterback.

From "Texas vs. Nation review" at Blogging the Boys:

Lee Robinson(OLB-Alcorn State) - You can see Robinson’s superior athleticism/size combo out there even if you’re not looking for it. He didn’t make huge plays like Joseph, but his burst off the snap, ability to fight through blocks, and one play where he easily threw an opponent to the ground all amounted to a good closing argument in the case he built to be a mid-round pick in the draft during the week in El Paso.

From "Best Draft Prospect you've Never Heard of" at Phinsider:

His strengths include:  Great athleticism and strength, especially upper body.  He was a multi-sport athlete in high school, and has good speed, leaping ability, and explosiveness.  He has good instincts and is always heading towards the ball.  He is a big hitter who enjoys laying out the ball carrier.  He is good at getting off of blocks.  He is extremely versatile- he played OLB in college, but also got down in a 3 point stance frequently to take advantage of his explosiveness in rushing the passer.  His size, run stopping ability, and instinct make him a possibility at inside backer as well.  At the Texas vs. The Nation game, he showcased his ability to cover TEs and RBs one on one, and should be fully capable of dropping into coverage in a 3-4, as well as hanging with athletic pulling guards trying to block down field in space.  He is a fantastic leader, both in the game and out.
