Brian Robiskie (born December 3, 1987) is a free agent American football wide receiver. He was originally selected by the Cleveland Browns in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft and has also been a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Detroit Lions and Tennessee Titans.

Robiskie was born in Los Angeles, California, and grew up in the Cleveland, Ohio area, where his father was a Cleveland Browns assistant coach. He attended Chagrin Falls High School, where he set numerous school records as a wide receiver.
Robiskie played college football at Ohio State. He saw little playing time in his freshman and sophomore season at Ohio State, but caught the winning touchdown pass in Ohio State's annual rivalry game with Michigan in 2006, and was named a starter his junior season. His performance in the 2007 season helped the Buckeyes advance to the 2008 BCS National Championship Game. Robiskie's receptions and yards were down in the 2008 season with new freshman quarterback Terrelle Pryor at the helm, but he was still a highly touted prospect coming into the 2009 NFL Draft.
