With the 133rd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers selected LSU cornerback Rashard Robinson.

Robinson played for two seasons with the Tigers and totaled 30 career tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and one interception. At the 2016 NFL Combine, he ran a 4.49-second 40-yard dash. Robinson also posted a 35.5-inch vertical jump and 121-inch broad jump.

Here is Robinson's scouting report, courtesy of The profile compares him to two-time Pro Bowler, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

"Tremendously long athlete with cover skills to blanket his target in press-man. Recovery speed allows him to sit on short and intermediate routes. Can flip hips and accelerate with his man down the field. Smooth change of speed to mirror double movers. Thin, but not soft. Plays to his height and it often spells doom when he has receivers pinned against the sideline. In 2013, held then-Aggie Mike Evans to four catches for 51 yards. Willing to do his part when he has to tackle. Explosive from stand­still and can close quickly on throws or receivers"
