3. Chop Robinson, Penn State

Robinson could be a first-round gem for the Eagles after a stellar 2023 season with the Nittany Lions. The Gaithersburg, Maryland defensive end only had 15 total tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, and two forced fumbles this season, which is a notable decrease from what we saw from him in 2022.

However, Robinson played a significant role in Penn State's top-three scoring defense (11.4 points per game allowed) in the country. The Nittany Lions were also excellent against the run this season (69.7 yards per game allowed). Huge credit goes to former Penn State defensive coordinator Manny Diaz for having guys such as Robinson and Kalen King ready to play.

The 6-foot-3 Robinson has scary athleticism that can turn him into a playmaker instantly off the edge as a rookie. The former Penn State defensive lineman doesn’t have the stats Latu or Verse put up.

However, his explosiveness and ability to wreak havoc in the backfield would be an excellent addition next to Nolan Smith, Jalen Carter, Jordan Davis, and Milton Williams.
