Air Force’s Jalen Robinette earns NFL Combine invite

Another Mountain West player earns an invite to the combine.

Air Force wide receiver Jalen Robinette has blown up since the season ended by earning an East-West Shrine invite and then a the Senior Bowl came calling. At bowl All-Star bowl games Robinette was impressive to scouts and that also led to multiple mock drafts have Robinette going in the second round.

Now, he is heading to Indianapolis for the NFL Combine.

Falcons players rarely get an invite to the combine for a variety of reasons that include the scheme, size limitations at the Academy in size and the commitment for Air Force football.

The final item has changed a bit with Air Force as players can postponed their service or do some alternate way to fulfill their commitment on a case-by-case basis.

Robinette had a great season on a per-catch basis but the numbers compared to other top wide outs do not compare. In 2016, he had just 35 catches but 959 yards and six touchdowns. He also had many great highlight-reel style catches.

The NFL scouts feel he has what it takes to go the next level and that in a more expanded role could have a solid NFL career.

Being selected to the combine is a very good indication that a player will get drafted, so barring something extraordinary expect Robinette to hear his name called during the NFL Draft in April.
