Player: Wan’Dale Robinson

Team: New York Giants

Pick: 43rd (2nd Round)

 

On a wonderous episode of the Razzball Fantasy Football Podcast Host Bobby LaMarco is joined by Razzball’s own Paul Blake to discuss New York Giants new WR Wan’Dale Robinson, his place with the Giants, and in the fantasy football world. Watch and hear our in-depth analysis, check out the YouTube video included.

The wunderkind Wan’Dale Robinson is a whirling dervish, and I believe he is the most elusive player in the 2022 NFL rookie class. ‘Dale is a Rescue Ranger-sized player at 5’, 8″ 180lbs, but don’t let his diminutive stature deter you, this kid plays like a giant, and after the being selected by New York in the 2nd round of the 22 NFL draft, he is a Giant.

Robinson’s college football career began at Nebraska where he spent two seasons being mismanaged by Scott Frost and the offensive staff in Lincoln. Wan’Dale was used as a runningback/receiver with the Cornhuskers where he regularly took punishment from massive Big Ten Linebackers running behind a porous offensive line. The little guy continued to bounce back up off the turf despite the damaging hits he was taking. After two troublesome years as a Husker, Wan’Dale transferred back to his home state and played his final college season as a wide receiver in Kentucky. The new Wildcat had an amazing inaugural season totaling 1,334 yards receiving and seven touchdowns on 104 receptions.

Wan’Dale possesses incendiary speed and plays even faster than his 4.4 40-yard dash implies. Robinson is a hard worker who was liked by teammates from two different colleges and he has demonstrated durability by playing through nagging injuries. Reliability and character are two things the Giants desperately need in their locker room. He’s already turning heads in OTA’s with glowing reports being released daily. Being selected 19th overall in rookie drafts and outside the top 200 in re-draft. I expect Wan’Dale to climb in those rankings as the season draws near. I am prepared to select Wan’Dale in the mid=late first round of rookie drafts and will happily pick him as high as the 170 range in re-draft leagues. I’m putting my chips on ‘Dale.
