Overview

While Amik Robertson is undersized and didn’t face many tough matchups, he is a really good corner prospect with a lot of upside for the NFL. He is limited to the slot in the NFL, or taking on smaller receivers on the boundary, but the physical mentality he brings can devastate smaller receivers. 

Robertson's hands are really soft, which can add interceptions to a team needing them. Whatever team that drafts him will have to be wary of matchups as he does struggle to deal with size.

Fit with Broncos

The Broncos have Bryce Callahan coming back from injury and he's projected to play the slot, but his medicals are concerning. Robertson would add depth to the corner position by giving Denver a backup nickel corner that can step in if Callahan has any setbacks. 

Robertson's 'my ball' mentality would be welcomed by the Broncos as they struggled to take the ball away from teams last season.

Grade: No. 69 overall prospect

Where he Goes: Round 3
