During his career, he posted 317 tackles (172 solo), 5.5 sacks, 25 tackles for loss, 14 quarterback pressures, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, three forced fumbles and 14 passes defensed.

Robinson, 22, started all 13 games as a senior in 2011, recording 106 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, one sack, one safety, 13 quarterback pressures, seven passes defensed and two forced fumbles.

He was also named the 2011 Holiday Bowl Defensive MVP.

Robinson was born on July 7, 1989, in Omaha, Neb. He prepped at Plano East (Texas) H.S., where he was named first-team All-American by both Parade Magazine and USA Today.

He was a member of ESPNU's top 150 national prospects, and finished his high school career with 273 tackles.

He is the sixth 2012 Redskins draft pick that has come to terms with the team, on the eve of Monday's full team OTA's.
