Jammie Robinson Scouting Report



High School

Jammie Robinson is a former 3-star recruit from Lee County High School in Leesburg, Georgia. While at Lee County, he played both strong safety and running back where he was very successful. According to MaxPreps, between his sophomore and junior season, he rushed for 2,440 yards and 32 touchdowns in 319 attempts. He was also an effective kick returner as well as he racked up 561 kickoff return yards. On the defensive side of the ball, he played 39 games in four varsity seasons. He tallied a total of 254 tackles (137 solo), 8 interceptions, 19 passes defended, and 3 fumble recoveries.

According to 247sports, this kind of efficiency led him to receive 26 offers, 21 of which were from power 5 schools. Some schools that offered him were Alabama, Clemson, LSU, Georgia, and Florida. After receiving all these offers, he decided to only visit four of the schools. These schools were Tennessee, Kentucky, Auburn, and South Carolina. After making his final visit to South Carolina, that is where he decided to take his talent.

After playing two very solid seasons for the Gamecocks, he decided to put his name in the transfer portal. Then after lots of consideration, he decided to take his game to Florida St. His first season at Florida St was very good to say the very least. He made a total of 84 tackles, 3 forced fumbles, and,4 interceptions at 3 passes defended. Personally, I believe that this is the season that really put his name on the map.





High Motor

Jammie Robinson has been a player that I have kept an eye on for the past few years. The aspect of his game that stands out to me the most is his high motor. Regardless of where he is lined up on the field, he does a good job of making his presence felt. I am most impressed when he is lined up deep as a free safety. When lined up this deep, the opposing quarterback rarely looks in his direction. This is because he does a good job of making a play on the ball when the ball is in the air for a long time.

Jammie Robinson also plays with a lot of aggressiveness in the open field. When an opposing player is coming towards him with the ball, there is no guarantee they will leave with it. This is because he is very good at knocking the ball out of their hands. One way he separates player from ball is by hitting them as they are catching the ball. He also does it by ripping the ball out of their hands when he makes a tackle.

When he is lined up at the line of scrimmage in a blitz scheme, he shows how explosive and aggressive he is. Although he struggles to shed blocks on occasion, if he gets into the backfield, there is no escaping him. 


Run Defense

As I mentioned earlier, he has a high motor regardless of where he is lined up on the field. But his run defense is at its best when he is lined up as a Strong Safety or Inside Linebacker. Robinson shows great patience on run plays, but then uses his elite athletic ability to make a stop.

His patience comes into play when he is reading the play and predicting where the ball carrier will be. Once he sees where the ball carrier is going, he does a good job of meeting them at the line of scrimmage. Usually, when Robinson is running towards you, you are going to go down. He can take down ball carriers easily because he attacks the hip of the player. By attacking the hips, he is forcing them off balance while wrapping his hands around their legs.



As I have mentioned several times in this report, Jammie Robinson is very versatile. He has lined up in almost every position on the defensive side of the ball. When lined up in these positions, he can play man coverage, zone coverage, or blitz. Although he can play everywhere on the field, I recommend primarily playing him in a run-support safety role. In this position, he will line up in the secondary on the strong side of the field. Or he will line up as an outside linebacker where he could drop back into flat coverage or rush the passer.






Ball Tracking

After watching countless hours of film on Jammie Robinson, I found that he often struggles to track deep balls. He struggles to make a play on a ball thrown in his direction with his back to the quarterback. Fortunately for Robinson, when playing in deep high safety looks, he will rarely have to turn his back. But, if he is playing in short or intermediate zone coverage, he may have to rely on his instincts to make a play. Considering what I have seen in his film, this would not be playing to his strengths. The opposing receiver is often able to gain leverage on him by forcing him to their opposite hip. If the ball is thrown over a receiver’s shoulder, Robinson will sometimes get stuck on their inside hip. This gives the receiver the advantage and almost takes Robinson out of the play completely.  


Hip Mobility

Jammie Robinson’s hip mobility is what is stopping him from making him the most versatile defender in the nation. If he had quicker hip mobility, I would line him up in the slot to cover the middle of the field. Unfortunately, since his hips are slower than the average DB, I think he should stick to zone coverage. But when he starts to go through the pre-draft process, I think that his hip mobility will improve. Then, he can show his improvement to NFL scouts and GMs and his draft stock will likely raise.


Jammie Robinson Draft Stock

Given that safety is seen as a position of lesser value, Robinson will likely fall to the 4th round. Personally, I think he would be a high-value pick in the 3rd round. The best scheme for him to play would be for a team looking for a player to play all over the field.


Final Thoughts on Jammie Robinson Scouting Report

After watching countless hours of film on Jammie Robinson, I think he may have one of the highest ceilings in the country. He plays with a motor that is rare to see in the safety position. He has a tremendous blend of athleticism and aggressiveness that allows him to be effective all over the field. If he can work on his hip quickness and mobility, his draft stock would improve tremendously.


Player Comparison

He reminds me of a player I wrote a scouting report on last season. That player is former Baylor safety and current Houston Texan Jalen Pitre.
