30 in 30: A’Shawn Robinson


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)-   He’s loud and he’s rough. That’s how one Alabama teammate described defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson. He validated that statement when asked how he attacks offensive lineman. “Once you start squeezing and grab those pads inside and start squeezing and shake the feelings out of them.” Robinson stats aren’t eye-popping. In three seasons with the Tide he had 51 tackles and 9 sacks but the 6’4″, 307 pound beast was asked to do the dirty work so his teammates could shine. “At Alabama we played 4-3 and 3-4, we did a little bit of both but we don’t shoot up field most of the time. We’re just gapping and pushing the pocket but I feel like I have the ability to penetrate the gap and show my athleticism and how I can get to the quarterback more efficiently than i did at Alabama.”
