Ole Miss Linebacker Mark Robinson drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers

This time last year, Mark Robinson was not on scholarship at Ole Miss.

Just ten months later, he has been drafted in the seventh round by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 225th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Robinson was a walk-on running back when he arrived at Ole Miss, but he was soon moved to linebacker once the coaches realized what skills he brought to the table.

In June of last year, Robinson was surprised with a scholarship.

In 2021, the Leesburg, Georgia native notched 92 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, three sacks and three quarterback hurries.

Congrats to Mark and the Steelers!
