Darius Robinson, Edge, Missouri

Height/Weight: 6-5, 285

Key stats: Totaled 12 sacks among 19½ tackles for loss over the past two seasons, including a strong finish to his college career with 8½ sacks over his final nine games, getting shut out in the sack department just once over that span.

College honors: Named first-team All-Southeastern Conference by both the Associated Press and league's coaches in 2023.

Background/other info: Played five seasons in all for Missouri, appearing in 47 games. Got his first college starts as a sophomore in 2020 at defensive tackle, eventually became a full-time starter at defensive end, battled some injuries, but missed just one game over the past two seasons. Earned two SEC defensive player of the week honors in 2023 and is known for using his arm length and strong hands to shed blockers. Was disappointed with the 21 bench press reps he recorded at the combine and publicly criticized the equipment setup, vowing to do better at his pro day, which he did with 28. In his prep days in Michigan, was primarily a basketball player and didn't play organized football until his junior year. By his senior season, was a team captain on a state playoff team playing defensive tackle, outside linebacker and tight end.
