The first-team All-ACC performer lands at No. 2 on the list. Jammie Robinson moving to safety was the catalyst that changed the entire defense last year.
That stability allowed other players to settle into set positions, which helped with continuity. It also allowed Robinson to flourish in what he does best, and that’s making plays.
His 84 tackles led the team, and that’s with him missing parts of games due to garbage targeting calls. He had seven tackles for a loss, four interceptions, two forced fumbles, and three passes defended.
Another year in Fuller’s defensive scheme should have him more comfortable, which should help the other players around him as they glean from his experience.
That’s not to take away from what Akeem Dent brings to the table at the other safety position.
He’s in line to have a standout year, but Robinson is the straw that stirs the drink in the secondary.
