Pete Carroll loves defensive linemen who can do multiple things on the inside of the line and the outside. Michael Bennett was a perfect example of this and it is one reason the Seahawks chose L.J. Collier in the first round in 2019. Neither Collier nor Bennett are pure defensive tackles or edge rushers but when acquiring them, Seattle hoped the players could do both.
Sample should be this kind of player. He has Michael Bennett size at 6’3″ and 275 pounds and has some athleticism. He played in the Senior Bowl, did well all week in drills and won the Senior Bowl Defensive MVP. He might last until round four though Seattle might need to take a chance on him in round 2.
Robinson wasn’t overly productive in college and played on some bad team but there is no doubt he has the physical skill and athletic ability to be a productive pro. The biggest question for Seattle would be if they see Robinson as an edge rusher or linebacker. If the answer is edge rusher and Robinson is still around in the fourth round,
Robinson is 6’5″ and 265 pounds so big for a linebacker but might fit in a 3-4. Seattle needs good pass rushers, though, and Robinson is potentially a very good one at the NFL level.
