As expected after a first team All-Big Ten season for the blue and white, Demeioun “Chop” Robinson announced his intentions to enter the 2024 NFL Draft, forgoing the Peach Bowl and his final season of eligibility.
Originally a Top 100 prospect in the 2021 recruiting class, Robinson decided to stay close to home for college, picking the hometown Maryland Terrapins. He stayed at Maryland for just one season though, and entered the transfer portal after his freshman season.
He wound up picking the Nittany Lions, and immediately jumped into the defensive end rotation, finishing his sophomore season with 5.5 sacks and 10 TFLs. His junior season wasn’t quite as good sacks and TFLs wise — 4 sacks and 7.5 TFLs — but he once again proved to be a terror on the edge, earning first team all-conference honors last week.
Robinson projects to be a first round selection come draft night. PFF has him going to the Atlanta Falcons at No. 19, while CBS has him at No. 24 to the Houston Texans. Given the fact he’ll test ridiculously at the NFL combine/Penn State pro day, I have a feeling his stock will rise.
