The Rams will be moving down from pick #138 to pick #160 in the 5th round. Robinson is a big receiver at 6’2″ and about 200 pounds. In addition he is only 23 years old. The Rams continue to attempt to get younger, stronger, and faster. Robinson could be a steal for the Rams. Robinson was a 3rd round draft pick of the Atlanta Falcons in the 2007 NFL Draft.

Billy Devaney was with the Atlanta Falcons when the Falcons drafted Robinson, so you know he is a big fan.
