At 6-foot-1, 200 pounds and possessing 4.4 second 40-yard dash speed, Robinson won first-team All-American Athletic conference honors in 2019, recording four interceptions, 38 tackles, and 17 passes defended.

And yet, he slid to the fourth round of the draft because he was from a smaller school and there was a perception that he wasn’t elite in one-on-one circumstances.

Since the season began, Robinson hasn’t seen a single snap. Not one. If the Cowboys had their full complement of cornerbacks, I would understand that decision. But that’s not the case.

Their secondary is in total disarray and have been embarrassed week after week with starters Chidobe Awuzie and Anthony Brown both on injured reserve. Though starting rookie cornerback Trevon Diggs has performed well, the other side has been a disaster.

While holding Robinson out to season him up, or saving him for safety or special teams might make sense normally, these are not normal times. Could he really be worse than what the Cowboys have out there? I doubt it.

In all three of these instances, I think these players could help the Cowboys. This is particularly true of the two defenders. I just don’t see how they can play any worse than the current players. Will Dallas give any of these young players a real chance to play?
