Next up in our series of Arizona State draft profiles is wide receiver Gerell Robinson, who is hoping a dynamic senior year can land him a spot in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 227 pounds

Age: 22

College Career: Saw action in 47 games, with 25 starts. Underachieved for first three seasons, never topping 30 receptions or 400 yards in any season. After slow start to 2011, he dominated the last two months, setting a career high in receiving yards six different times, capped by an incredible 11-catch, 241-yard performance in the Maaco Bowl. His 1,397 yards were the second-most in school history.

Strengths: At 6'3", 227 pounds, Robinson has great size, and possess an advantage over most defensive backs. He has great body control, allowing him to "box out" defenders. After battling drops during his first three years, showed terrific hands, especially in traffic. Routinely owned the intermediate routes between the hashes, and has the ability to grab a jump ball. Uses his size advantage well in the run game, as he is a very effective blocker. A great short-to-intermediate option to move the chains on third down. Huge hands (10 1/8"). Terrific work ethic. Potential to be a good possession receiver at the NFL level.

Weaknesses: Robinson posted a 4.62 40-yard dash time at the Combine, which was slower than you'd like to see from a receiver his size. Even with his size, has not proven to be effective in the downfield passing game. Not explosive off the line, and may struggle to beat NFL defensive backs. Will need to show effectiveness outside after spending most of his time at ASU working out of the slot. Not much of a run-after-catch threat.

Round Projection: 6th to 7th

Prediction: New York Jets, 7th round, 242nd overall
