Round 3, Pick 82

CB, Amik Robertson

Louisiana Tech

Amik is a hot name in the draft community these days. The slot man from Louisiana Tech is one of the most endearing players coming from Conference USA this year and despite his height limitations (5-foot-9) he’s one of the most physical ball hawks this draft has.

First of all – it’s his physicality. Amik will do battle with anyone regardless of their size. He makes them earn it and if they slip, he’s there to make them pay. 14 career interceptions and 34 pass deflections are nothing to scoff at.

Amik is a natural athlete who’s fluid in movement, twitchy and explosive. He’s aggressive and sometimes gets burned for it but more often than not he’s in position to make the smart play.

On the Dallas Cowboys, Robertson fits inside only. In 2020 he’ll likely be CB4 or CB5 on the depth chart, but in Year 2 he’ll probably be starting nickel corner. Chido and Jourdan are both free agents after this season and Anthony Brown just signed a 3-year deal. It wouldn’t be hard to see the starting 2021 pair being Brown (again, he‘s played outside before and his arm length is nearly 32-inches) and Travon Diggs (just drafted in the second round) with Robertson as the starting nickel.

Troy Pride was also on the board and his ability to play outside was tempting, but the ball skills and production win out here since we already snagged Diggs in Round 2.
