Shortly after Reid Humphreys and Daniel Brown were drafted in the 7th round, Mississippi State junior outfielder Jacob Robson was drafted 235th overall in the 8th round to the Detroit Tigers.

So far on the 2016 campaign, Robson has batted .335 with 24 RBIs and one home run, which was an inside the park home run. Robson's biggest asset is his speed, which has helped him steal 18 bases in 20 attempts.

Robson is the 4th Bulldog drafted so far, joining 1st rounder Dakota Hudson and 7th rounders Reid Humphreys and Daniel Brown.
