When the Saints drafted Patrick Robinson with the 32nd pick of the 2010 draft, the idea was that he’d become a fixture in their secondary for years to come.
It didn’t work out that way, however. Robinson spent one season as a full-time starter, missed time with injuries and generally failed to meet the expectations he carried into the league.
