A preseason game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns didn’t produce a winner, but it showcased the talent of a late-round quarterback.
The buzz of the 18-18 contest centered on Browns quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson and the composure he showed in the pocket.
Robinson was 13-25 for 164 yards and earned a quarterback rating of 72.8. He also added four rushes for 18 yards. He helped lead the Browns on two consecutive scoring drives and left the game with his team in the lead.
Robinson, a fifth-round pick out of UCLA, is currently listed fourth on the Browns quarterback depth chart, behind Deshaun Watson, Joshua Dobbs and Kellen Mond. However, due to this performance, it appears that he may go to a higher position in the regular season.
Fans on social media certainly believe so, praising the rookie’s performance and projecting a positive future in the NFL.
Kellen Mond came on in relief duty for Robinson, going 12-of-24 for 126 yards and a touchdown.
Robinson’s performance comes after the signal-caller has a FIRM performance against the New York Jets in the Browns’ preseason opener. He will likely have one more chance to show off his tools before the end of the preseason when Cleveland travels to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs.
