Pick # 139 is in: CB, Amik Robertson, Louisana Tech

Recommended Posts

I guess I am a little late to the party but when I got a chance to look at the top players left he was top 3 for me.  Granted I do not know much about him other than reading others opinions and some highlights.  4th round points towards replacing Jackson and Joyner after next year.  Jackson might be gone this year though.  I am happy with the pick.

As a Broncos fan my heart is broken. I shall go maskless into Skid Row in Los Angeles now. Nothing matters anymore.

Can't play outside but has the potential to be the best slot CB in the league in a few years.

undersized but he makes plays.  he will be a starter for the raiders at some point in the season.  if he was taller he would have gone way earlier.  size is his only knock.

From that I know about him (he was on my radar a while ago), if he was 4-5" taller, he'd be a 2nd round guy IMO. I could be overrating him though. Another super physical corner with great instincts

Go watch him man. He might be your new favorite Raider

Tiny dude (5'8" I believe) but plays as hard as anyone. There was this one play against Texas where he lined up against their like 6'5" TE and completely jammed him up at the line and disrupted the play. 

The next play he got completely knocked around by Colin Johnson but still.

Could make the argument that he's the best pure slot corner in the draft.  A bit on the small side though.

Fiesty. Scrappy. Competitive.

He’ll end up being better than Arnette.

Amik is a wasted pick if they're going to play him exclusively at corner. Needs to be a hybrid CB/S guy like Tyrann Mathieu or LaMarcus Joyner to have an NFL shot.

If he was 2 to 3 inches taller he would be in talks as the best CB in this class.  He is that damn good on the field and i still think he should have been a 1st to 2nd round player.  Everytime i watch him play he just looks phenomenal and he is on the top of most charts when lined up against other CB's at what all they do best compared to the others.

He's short, tough and makes a lot of plays

Raider forum rejoice!!!

Is Amik the cult figure of this years draft he's been mentioned around here so many times, anyone remember the old Ray Maualuga thread back in the day and we didn't even draft him 😁😁

For what its worth really like this pick, wolverine attitude and skills too. Looks like Joyner's heir apparent to me snd very pleased about it😀

Looking young, aggressive and very promising;

CB1 Mullen, Johnson

CB2 Lawson, Arnette 

Slot Joyner, Robertson

Battling for roster/ps Nixon, Nelson, Maybin

your right...here you go

CB crew: Had to add Mabin since I like symmetry...

Trayvon Mullen (6'2") Isaiah Johnson (6'2")

Keisean Nixon (5'10"), , Nick Nelson (5'11"),

Nevin Lawson (5'9") Amik Robertson (5'8")

Damon Arnette (6'0), Dylan Mabin (6'0)

and Safety squad

Abram (5'11) Randall (5'11)

Heath (6'1) Harris (6'3)

Joyner (5'8) Leavitt (5'10)

And I could see all but 2 of these guys making the roster with the size expanded to 56 (26 defensive players = 12 secondary, 6 LBs, 8 Dline)
