Will Reggie Robinson II Finally Make his NFL Debut Against Minnesota?

Reggie Robinson II the only Cowboys rookie yet to play in 2020.

There’s no way of knowing exactly what kind of changes or adjustments the Dallas Cowboys might’ve made during their bye week, but one they should absolutely consider is activating Defensive Back Reggie Robinson II for the first time this season. Surprisingly enough, he’s the only draft pick by the Cowboys this year who has yet to play this season.

From CeeDee Lamb to Ben DiNucci, the Dallas Cowboys 2020 rookie draft class have nearly all received significant playing time already this season. CeeDee Lamb and Trevon Diggs both look like superstars in the making, Neville Gallimore and Tyler Biadasz are future full-time starters, and even Ben DiNucci showed a few flashes in his first career start at QB. To say the Cowboys have hit on more than a few of their draft picks this year would be an understatement.

Evaluating their rookie draft class should be an easy assignment for the Cowboys through the first half of the season. They’ve been good and will only get better. Having said that though, the jury still out on a couple of their mid-round picks… Bradlee Anae and Reggie Robinson II. Anae has at least earned the distinction of making the active roster this year, whereas Robinson has yet to do so. That of course could change in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings.

With Trevon Diggs out 4 to 6 weeks with a broken foot his rookie season could be all but over. There’s no need to rush him back until he’s 100% healthy and maybe not even then with little to play for this year. With Diggs sidelined, it not only opens up a spot on the game day roster but provides an opportunity to jumpstart the evaluation process for Reggie Robinson.

Now, I’m not expecting the Dallas Cowboys to activate Reggie Robinson against the Vikings this week and immediately insert him into the starting lineup or anything. But, getting him on the field whether on special teams or on defense isn’t out of the question. Let him get his feet wet to learn firsthand what it’s like on game day. That alone should prove beneficial.

I however wouldn’t be surprised if Reggie Robinson starts becoming more involved from now on though. The 6’1″, 190 pound defensive back is a versatile player who can develop into a starting caliber safety or cornerback. With the need for both after the season, finding out what Robinson can do could turn into a top priority for the remainder of the year.

The Dallas Cowboys are going to be in desperate need of more secondary help beyond the 2020 season with so many players hitting free agency this year. Jumpstarting the evaluation process for Reggie Robinson could help determined just how big a need it actually is. That’s why I think they’d be wise to take advantage of what can only be described as a lost season to see what No. 41 is capable of.

Do you think Reggie Robinson II should make his NFL debut in Week 11?

What do you think?

  1. I think we need to see where he’s at with his development. Let him start on special teams, see if he can make a play or two.

  2. Absolutely play him. We’ll never know what we have with him until we do. With so many holes in the secondary next year, again we are in the assessment mode right now. We need to know who fits into our plans in order to make the proper personnel decisions moving forward.

  3. He’s worth giving a try!! There’s no way he can be worse than Savion Smith!! That guy shouldn’t ever get to see the field again!! And another thing I wanna mention is that we really don’t have an extra roster spot…. Yeah, Trevon Diggs is out, but now Chido is coming back from IR, so those 2 pretty much just changed spots!! Unless I’m missing something!? But if I’m not, then I would bench Savion Smith and bring in Reggie Robinson!!

  4. Give the rook a chance. Between the terrible play of Savion Smith and the God awful play of Xavier Woods he can’t do any worse.

  5. Give Reggie and the young guys a chance to develop. We need some dogs out there on defense. Let go Boys let run the table the NFC still up for grabs.Anything can happen.
