Kenny Robinson, the former West Virginia Mountaineer safety, recently admitted on the Players Tribune that he did in fact cheat academically while at West Virginia University and was kicked out of school.

Robinson detailed what led up to his dismissal – including his mother suffering two strokes and being diagnosed with colon cancer – and expressed extreme remorse for his actions.

However, it appears that NFL teams are wary of drafting Robinson, who has 1st or 2nd round talent but also a lot of “baggage.”

Robinson, who expected to be drafted by now, expressed his frustration on Twitter.  Following the first round on Thursday night, Robinson posted the following:

Then, following Friday night’s 2nd and 3rd round, Robinson added:

Former West Virginia great David Long also tweeted out, “Okay, now they are just playing with my boy.”

Although Robinson has not yet been picked and may not be picked at all, he will likely at the very least be given an undrafted free agent deal and will have an opportunity on an NFL team.

Robinson was an All Big 12 defensive back as a Sophomore for the Mountaineers and showed incredible promise before his untimely dismissal from the team.
