Analysis:

Any team that picks Bradley Robey in the first round will have to reconcile Bradley Robey from his sophomore year and from his junior year. He was a sure-fire first round pick his sophomore year who dominated and showed all the characteristics of an elite corner. This past year, his play really fell off. His technique was sloppy, his overall effort was poor and he lost battles to receivers he had no business losing battles to. His physical talent is undeniable and athletically he’s got almost everything you want in a corner. A team with a strong leadership group and veterans to teach him what it means to be a pro will benefit the most from Robey. Definitely has bust potential but talent is undeniable. We’ve seen him do it before, he just needs to do it all the time.
