Paul Harvey Robinson (born December 19, 1944 in Tucson, Arizona) is a former professional American football running back for two seasons in the American Football League and five seasons in the National Football League. Paul Robinson played only one year at the University of Arizona, but in his first year as a professional, he gained 1,023 yards rushing and scored eight touchdowns. He was the second man to gain over 1,000 yards in his first year in professional football in the U.S., the other being Cookie Gilchrist. He was named to the 1968 and 1969 AFL All-Star Team and led the 1968 Western AFL All-Star team to victory over the Eastern All-Stars. He was the 1968 United Press International and Sporting News AFL Rookie of the Year.

Robinson is the only running back in professional football history to gain over 1,000 yards in a season for a first-year expansion team (the 1968 Cincinnati Bengals).
