Seahawks' Alton Robinson: Earning more opportunities
Robinson made three tackles in Sunday's 27-26 win over the Vikings.
The rookie fifth-rounder was a healthy scratch for the first two games of the season before making his NFL debut in Week 3 and recording a 37 percent snap share and a sack. He's maintained a similar workload in both games since then and now has five tackles -- three for a loss -- a sack and two quarterback pressures through three games. Robinson's been productive from the first snap, so it's worth keeping an eye on how the rookie progresses.

Seahawks' Alton Robinson: Goes to Seattle
Seattle selected Robinson in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 148th overall.
The Seahawks are adding edge talent in this class, nabbing Robinson after getting Darrell Taylor out of Tennessee in the second round. Robinson, a Syracuse product, is a standout athlete who ran a 4.69 in the 40 at the combine at 264 pounds and also had strong scores in the jumps and shuttle. His best season came in 2018, when he racked up 10.0 sacks and 17.0 tackles for loss. He regressed in 2019 with 9.5 TFL and 4.5 sacks, which may have hurt his stock. That said, his 2018 plus his strong combine suggests he has tools worth developing by the Seattle coaching staff.
