Denard Robinson’s draft stock seemed to take a hit at the Senior Bowl, as he struggled to adjust to playing wide receiver and had issues returning kicks. But Robinson may not have hurt himself as much as most draft analysts first believed. During a conference call with reporters on Wednesday, ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper said that Robinson would be a second- or third-round pick in this year’s draft — “third round, at worst,” Kiper said, adding that he’d feel comfortable drafting him in the third. More of Kiper’s comments via the Free Press’ Mark Snyder: https://twitter.com/Mark__Snyder/statuses/301734110941028352 https://twitter.com/Mark__Snyder/statuses/301733905982160898 Robinson will take part in the NFL’s scouting combine, which begins next week in Indianapolis. He figures to help himself with some of that event’s speed drills, like the 40-yard dash and shuttle runs. He still needs to prove, between now and April, that he’s capable of transitioning to a new position, as his days of playing quarterback are behind him. Medical exams will be important for Robinson, too — he initially shifted out from QB because of a nerve injury in his elbow, sustained against Nebraska, and he was still not at 100 percent for the Senior Bowl.
