Arizona Cardinals draft first round pick

ARIZONA – The Arizona Cardinals today officially announced the signing of DL Darius Robinson, making him the tenth of twelve picks from the 2024 NFL Draft to sign their rookie contract.

Robinson signed a standard four-year contract with an option for a fifth year (since he was selected in the first round). ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the deal is fully guaranteed for $13.86 million over the first four years.

More about the Missouri defensive lineman from the official press release:

“Robinson (6-5, 285) played 49 games (29 starts) at Missouri and totaled 111 tackles (69 solo), 13.0 sacks, 21 tackles for loss, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one defensed pass. Last season, Robinson started 12 of 13 games played and was a first-team All-SEC selection after setting career-highs with 43 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble attempt at recovery. In two seasons as a full-time starter with the Tigers, he played in 26 games (22 starts) and had 88 tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss and 12.0 sacks. Robinson, 22, was a two-time member of the Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in education.

Robinson is a versatile and violent chess piece on the defensive line that the Cardinals can use moving forward. Even in a stacked room with experienced free agent signings, Robinson needs to be used early and often.

Arizona still needs Dadrion Taylor-Demerson and Trey Benson to sign their first contracts to fully complete their 2024 draft class.
