Free Agent Profile: Defensive Tackle A’Shawn Robinson


A’Shawn Robinson, 6’4” 320 pounds

Signature Stat: 36 run stops ranked 3rd among all DT’s


Contract Projection: 2 years, $12M, $6M AAV, $6M GTD


Cover 1 Take: Consistently elite run defender but has only played full season in 4 out of 8 years in the league. Minor injury history may impact market. Would be fall back option if DaQuan Jones can’t be re-signed


Summary: Primarily a two-down defender, relied upon for his prowess against the run. Despite lacking explosiveness, he compensates with raw power and active feet, often making block destruction look effortless. Operating mainly as a 3-technique or 4i in the Giants’ scheme, his sluggish initial step and late recognition of blocking concepts hindered his impact but managed to consistently win ugly. However, Robinson demonstrates solid ball tracking and tenacity in pursuit. As a pass rusher, he relies on sheer strength to push the pocket, lacking a refined plan or moves.-Turner


Signature Skill/Trait: Winning ugly, but winning
