Saturday afternoon marked the remaining day and rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft. Safety Kenny Robinson was the 152nd player selected in this year’s NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers.
Robinson made a name for himself in the short-lived XFL this spring, after being dismissed by West Virginia for academic issues in the spring of 2019. Robinson was named all-Big 12 during the 2018 season and had two interceptions for St. Louis during the XFL season this spring.
Robinson was the fifth player drafted by the Panthers this weekend, marking first-year Head Coach Matt Rhule’s incoming players being predominantly defensive players.
The latest Panthers safety is from Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, having played football in high school at Imani Christian Academy. Robinson played both safety and cornerback during his time in Morgantown.
