NFL Combine’s Spotlight Shines on Demeioun “Chop” Robinson’s Spectacular Performance

Demeioun “Chop” Robinson, a highly touted prospect expected to be a first-round pick in the upcoming NFL draft, stole the show on the opening night of the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. It was during his drills, particularly the 40-yard dash, where Robinson’s exceptional talent truly came to the forefront.

The 40-yard dash, arguably the most anticipated drill at the combine, typically sees defensive linemen clocking slower times on the first day. However, Robinson defied expectations with his remarkable speed and agility. Standing tall at 6 feet 2 inches and weighing 254 pounds, Robinson blazed through the 40-yard dash in an electrifying 4.48 seconds. Initially recorded at 4.49 seconds, the time was later adjusted after a meticulous review, reducing it by one hundredth of a second.

Robinson’s impressive performance drew comparisons to notable players like Micah Parsons, a Penn State alum and star for the Dallas Cowboys. While Parsons had a faster sprint during his Pro Day, Robinson’s speed was likened to top NFL picks such as Nick Bosa of the San Francisco 49ers and Will Anderson Jr. of the Houston Texans, both of whom he outpaced.

Notably, Robinson’s 10-yard split of 1.54 seconds set a new record for edge rushers weighing at least 250 pounds, underscoring the rarity of his speed and size combination. Beyond the 40-yard dash, Robinson showcased his athleticism with a remarkable 34½-inch vertical leap and a 10-foot, 8-inch broad jump.

In a feat reminiscent of Vernon Davis, the San Francisco 49ers tight end drafted sixth overall in 2006, Robinson became the first prospect since Davis to post a 40-yard dash time of 4.5 seconds or less while recording a broad jump of at least 10½ feet.

With his standout performance at the combine, Robinson’s draft stock is soaring, and there’s speculation that he may be selected earlier than previously projected. Having started his college career at Maryland before transferring to Penn State in 2022, Robinson has consistently demonstrated his prowess on the field, as evidenced by his standout sophomore season stats of 5½ sacks, 26 combined tackles, and 10 tackles for loss.

As the anticipation builds for the NFL draft on April 25, all eyes are on Demeioun “Chop” Robinson, a rising star poised to make a significant impact at the professional level.”
