Michigan QB attempts to play wide receiver as he hopes to carry on playing career at the next level.
Denard Robinson was a college sensation right the way through his career and produced moments of magic that will have those who follow the maize and blue of Michigan with fond memories of his time there.
As a college Quarterback, he was okay in the passing game, putting up average numbers when he threw the ball. It was when he had the ball in his hands and took off running with it, the whole picture changed.
‘Shoelace’ – a nickname given to him as he doesn’t lace up his boots – was a very fast kid, who could make defenders miss in the open field and take long runs to the endzone on a regular basis.
He was never going to be a QB at the NFL level, he wasn’t good enough to play it consistently at college, so the pro’s was out of the question.
However his athleticism means he is an intriguing prospect as a slot receiver and special teams return man. He has shown his play-making ability with the ball in his hands plenty of times for Michigan over the years, now pro scouts want to see him do the same at the next level.
He can do it easily, so long as he can find a team that will be patient and help him develop into his new role, as whoever drafts him won’t gain instant success out of him.
If you still aren’t sure of how good Denard can be with the ball in his hands, then this video will prove otherwise.
