Gave some details on main board. Dolphins scouted Robertson prior to draft, when they visited the campus. He was considered the strongest player on the team. Big too. Lymon is said to have some character issues. He is very big as a wr (over 6-3).

Strengths: Appears to reads defense well and locates seams when sees zone coverage. Understands spacing and does a good job of avoiding contact when working the middle of the field. Has good size and doesn't allow defenders to knock him off his routes. Works back to the quarterback and uses his frame to shield defenders from the ball. Snatches the ball out of the air and flashes the ability to make tough catches in traffic. Elusive enough to make the first defender miss, strong enough to pick up some yards after contact and can produce after the catch.

Weaknesses: Doesn't have great top-end speed, isn't going to run by many NFL corners and isn't much of a big-play threat after the catch. Takes too long to change directions, isn't explosive and is going to have a hard time separating from man coverage. Rounds off too many cuts, appears to take some plays off and is an inconsistent route-runner. Appears soft at times and looks hesitant going over the middle. Loses focus at times and drops some passes that should catch. Has good size but doesn't play with enough of a mean streak and doesn't put much effort into blocking. Purdue dismissed him from the team in November of last year, has had some run-ins with the law and character is a substantial concern.

Overall: Lymon joined the Boilermakers in February of 2005. He appeared in all 13 games of the 2006 season recording 33 receptions, 580 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns. In 2007, Lymon appeared in all 12 regular season games recording 40 catches, 450 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns. However, Purdue released Lymon from the team on November 20 so he did not participate in the Motor City Bowl. Lymon has the skill set to emerge as a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver but he doesn't have the speed or explosiveness to develop into an every-down player. Furthermore, he has to show that his off-the-field problems are behind him and that he's willing to put in the work he'll need to put in to succeed at the NFL level. Lymon projects as a rookie free agent.

I remember Lymon had a huge game against ND two years ago, something like over 200 yards receiving. In that game he could not be covered, he was too big, strong, and fast for the ND defensive backfield. I guess that was his Tim Smith game.
