Denard Robinson has been the Michigan Wolverines quarterback for most of his four year on campus. This week in Mobile, Alabama at the Senior Bowl he is catching passes, not throwing them. Robinson stand 5' 10'' and 196 pounds. He has been playing some running back, receiver and quarterback the last couple months at Michigan,
When asked what he thought his role would be on an NFL team he said “I don't know, whatever a team wants to use me as, then that's what I will do.”
Robinson has expressed his interest in playing for the Detroit Lions. This would be an easy transition since he wouldn't leave the state, and local fans would embrace him. He only has 3 catches for 31 yards in his Wolverines career so he will have to show scouts that he can catch passes consistently.
Robinson hold the FBS record for rushing yards for a quarterback at 4,495 yards. These numbers would seem to show that he might be a better running back prospect then a wide receiver. He has has a tough time staying healthy so the amount of hits a running back takes probably wouldn't suit him.
He is projected as a second day draft pick, and if he wants to improve on that, he will have to shine against some of the best draft prospects at the Senior Bowl. Robinson reminds some people of Dexter McCluster, who transitioned from running back in college to slot receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL. His durability is a big concern but he could be a nice surprise for a team willing to take a shot on a bit of a project.
