A’Shawn Robinson Looks to Lead Rams Defense in Super Bowl
The Los Angles Rams are back in the Super Bowl for the first time since 2019 and are looking to win its first Super Bowl since 1999 behind the emergence of former Alabama Crimson Tide defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson.
Robinson leads the Rams defensive line in tackles this postseason with 16. Seven have been solo tackles and he has assisted on nine of them. Having helped lead the way to the Big Game, Robinson looks to win the first Super Bowl of his career.
This Rams defense is arguably one of the best LA has ever had with three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald anchoring the front four and three-time All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey leading the secondary.
Robinson is surrounded by immense talent, but he's holding his own and doesn't want to be overlooked.
"I always feel disrespected. I never feel respected," Robinson told the Detroit News. "That’s just part of my mindset, you know? Never want anything given, like that everything in my life has been earned. So I appreciate that God’s given me an opportunity to go out there and really earn everything that I want."
Winning a Super Bowl is the ultimate path to respect in the NFL.
In his second season with the Rams, Robinson recorded 67 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles in 2021. A six-year veteran, Robinson appears to be hitting his stride in Los Angeles.
Robinson was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. In his four years in Detroit Robinson racked up 163 tackles, four sacks and an interception.
Robinson played for Alabama from 2013-15 where he won a national championship his junior year and was a consensus All-American.
