Matt Robillard

LB | (6-2, 230, 4.85) | Miami (OH)
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Started three games at linebacker as a redshirt freshman. Started the first six games in 2000 at safety before moving back to linebacker and starting the last five. Started every game at linebacker the last two years. Had 28 stops in '99; 104 tackles, two sacks and four passes broken up in 2000; and 109 tackles, five sacks, eight passes broken up and two interceptions (one TD) in '01, when he won All-Mid-American Conference honors. He posted 99 tackles, including 17 tackles for loss, six sacks, two interceptions and a sack as a senior.

Positives: Robillard is a supersmart, instinctive linebacker who is very aware. Evident that he loves to play the game and plays with passion. Is aware in zone coverage. Has also played safety, which benefits him in coverage.

Negatives: Physical ability is marginal for the next level. Both his playing speed and playing strength are marginal and he lacks explosiveness. Doesn't look good in man-to-man coverage.

Summary: Robillard is an overachiever who will struggle to make his skills fit at the next level.
