Alabama defensive lineman A’Shawn Robinson is known as a fiercely aggressive player on the gridiron. But on Wednesday afternoon, Robinson was caught letting down that intimidating facade and displaying a very different side of himself.
Robinson spent the afternoon tossing the pigskin around with some local kids at an NFL Play 60 event in Chicago. It was rare to see the usually serious and motivated Robinson joke around and even smile on occasion.
So perhaps Robinson is more of a gentle giant off the field. But it’ll be all business once again when the first round of the NFL draft begins Thursday night.
