College: Penn State Position: Wide Receiver Height: 6’2″ Weight: 220 2013 College Statistics: 97 receptions, 1,432 yards, six touchdowns. Allen Robinson is one of the more talented wide receivers in the 2014 NFL Draft, and he is a very intriguing prospect to say the very least. He has all the physical ability to become a special player, and is a deep threat with the ability to make plays in the open field and across the middle as well. There are not many receivers in the draft that are as complete as Robinson, and that talent will allow him to be selected high in the draft. Most analysts currently have him projected as a second or third round pick. Strengths Very quick acceleration allows him to blow past defenders Polished route-runner who knows how to get separation Above average hands Extremely athletic leaping ability Perfect size for an NFL wide receiver Adjusts well to poorly thrown balls Has the frame to put on more weight and become stronger Weaknesses Can struggle at times creating plays for himself after the catch Blocking effort can be inconsistent Body control on the sideline is inconsistent Wasn’t used as typical possession receiver in college Lack of experience battling for 50/50 balls Overall, there are a good number of strengths and weaknesses for Robinson, but he still has a lot of room to improve his game as well. With good NFL coaching and the time to work on his game, he has the potential to develop into a “star” wide receiver. His physical abilities are undeniable, but he does have some work to do on his all-around focus and effort. He’ll be a very nice pickup for any team that decides to give him a chance. Expect to see him make an impact in his rookie season given the right situation.

2014 NFL Draft: Carolina Panthers to meet with Penn State WR Allen Robinson

The Carolina Panthers’ issues at wide receiver have been well documented this off-season. So far, they have lost Steve Smith, Brandon Lafell, and Ted Ginn Jr. To replace those wide receivers, the Panthers added Jason Avant, Tiquan Underwood, and Jerricho Cotchery.

Penn State's Allen Robinson fits the Bill at WR

The Patriots made their splash in the rookie receiver pool last year and subsequently dealt with the residual growing pains. It took some time for Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and Kenbrell Thompkins to learn the offense, and get on the same page with Tom Brady.
