Eagles CB Patrick Robinson off to hot start in 2017
- Philadelphia Eagles CB Patrick Robinson has quietly jumped out to a tremendous start to the 2017 season, and is currently the highest graded cornerback in the NFL with an overall PFF grade of 92.6. Making his performance even more surprising, is that his elite level of play this season is on the heels of his worst season as a pro in 2016, in which he finished with an overall grade of 45.1.
- Robinson has excelled in all facets of the game so far, and has registered three stops in run defense and another eight stops against just 14 receptions he has allowed.
- While his coverage numbers don’t jump out (having allowed 14 receptions on 22 targets), Robinson’s playmaking ability has shined over the past three games – posting six passes defensed and an interception. Robinson has allowed just 224 yards on 168 snaps in coverage, averaging 12.0 snaps per reception allowed.
