That's what renowned trainer Tom Shaw calls former Florida State standout Patrick Robinson, who boasts an array of position skills that make him one of the top cornerbacks in this year's NFL Draft. Robinson has the opportunity to showcase those skills at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, where he hopes to clock one of the event's fastest 40-yard dash times.
Only four players at this year's combine have recorded a 40 mark of less than 4.40 seconds -- former Clemson receiver Jacoby Ford headlines the quartet at 4.28. Former East Carolina running back and current Tennessee Titans Pro Bowler Chris Johnson ran a record-tying 4.24 two years ago.
"Patrick's my next freak," said Shaw, who operates his performance training camp at Disney's Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Fla. "You are going to see some things out of him -- he will be dominant at the combine."
Robinson reportedly turned in one of the fastest 40-times ever recorded at FSU, where he ran a 4.25 in the summer of 2008. Robinson also recorded the top times in both the 3-cone drill and shuttle run.
While FSU once produced first-round NFL Draft picks with regularity, Robinson is looking to become the first Seminole selected in the opening round of the NFL Draft since linebacker Lawrence Timmons in 2007.
