After only catching one ball as a true freshman during the 2005 season, Robiskie became more of a factor as a sophomore. He caught 29 passes for 383 yards and five touchdowns, as a backup to Ted Ginn and Anthony Gonzalez. Moving into the starting line up as a junior, Robiskie stepped up his level of play. He hauled in 55 passes for 935 yards and 11 touchdowns on the year. Robiskie’s numbers as a senior were down, but that was due more to the QB play for the Buckeyes. True freshman Terrelle Pryor had a great season, but the playbook and his passing skills were very limited and Robiskie’s status suffered. He caught just 37 passes for 419 yards, but was a favorite in the red zone as he hauled in eight touchdown passes.
Robiskie is a very good all around receiver. He is solid across the board physically, having good speed, athleticism, and size. Robiskie is the son of long time NFL coach, Terry Robiskie and you can tell. He runs good routes, and consistently gets open over the middle of the field. With his size, it creates an excellent target for the quarterback and allows him to be a player you look for consistently to move the chains. Robiskie also has very good hands and ball skills. He can go up and get the ball at its highest point, making him tough in one on one situations and near the end zone.
While he is not lacking anything physically, he does not have any true standout physical quality either. He has good speed, but is not a burner. He has good size, but is a bit thin and won’t have a size advantage in the NFL like he does most of the time in college.
Robiskie is a very good receiver prospect because of his combination of solid natural gifts, and his well rounded skills. His father has taught him well, and that should allow Brian to have a long, successful career in the NFL. He may not be a true game breaker but his ability to catch the football will make him a favorite target of his new quarterback.
