    Adrian Robinson

    I'd get him 5 snaps a game as a nickel pass rusher. Woodley and Harrison are not getting enough pressure (though Woodley has shown some flashes lately). Just give the kid a few snaps. He is currently playing special teams. I don't think he'll be an all pro, but he might put a little heat on the QB. That'd be nice.

    Must be struggling with the "Conversion" so he'll be on the sideline.

    Or perhaps he hasn't shown more than Woodley, Harrison and Worilds in practice.

    Must be hard to NOT be able to get to the QB. I wonder how long it takes to teach a player to be proficient at that?

    By "conversion", I'm sure you mean conversion from college to the pro level...which is often difficult for undrafted free agents, especially their rookie year...

    Plus DE to OLB which seems to be a 2 years process minimum for most.

    Yea, this is it, he's an all-pro sitting on the sideline, because Harrison and Woodley are so bad because they're veterans. Sometime Ovi the players that aren't playing really shouldn't be playing and it isn't Lebeau's or Tomlin's fault for not recognizing their talent.

    Have I ever posted that Robinson should be playing or is a future All Pro? I actually forgot the guy was on the active roster.

    I'm not sure why people are jumping on O. We already do these kinds of things to get rookies some PT. Sprinkling in Robinson will help his development. Nothing wrong with the suggestion.

    I read somewhere that the only thing Adrian Robinson was proficient at right now was rushing the passer and that he was really struggling with the complexities of LeBeau's defense and with pass coverage.

    so if you're just gonna use him as a pass rushing specialist, why not just let Jason Worilds do that?
