Michigan’s Denard Robinson committed five turnovers in a loss to Notre Dame. Denard Robinson is still not back to 100 percent, health-wise — the ex-Michigan quarterback was limited Monday during the first day of Senior Bowl practice in Mobile, Ala. Robinson, spending time with the wide receiver group, caught 9-of-10 passes; he also briefly fielded punts, no doubt something NFL teams would consider asking him to do. The electric former Wolverine still generated a lot of interest on Monday, despite the nerve injury in his elbow that has nagged him for more than three months now. Several teams talked with Robinson after the workout — it’s typical for teams to meet with plenty of guys during the Senior Bowl — and the Lions were among them, MLive reported. “They said they wanna see me catch,” Robinson told MLive.com after the practice at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. “That’s what they’re all telling me, and that’s what I want to show people. I know I can catch. I’m a football player. Just got to show it.” … “It’s a little frustrating,” Robinson said. “But I got the whole week. It’ll be fine. There’s time, and a lot of teams are talking to me, and just telling me to be patient.” Robison’s athleticism is understandably intriguing for NFL teams, especially as the read-option has stormed the league. However, Robinson has never played wide receiver — even after his injury this past season, he saw action only as a non-passing QB or as a running back behind Devin Gardner. It’s possible that Robinson winds up playing a role like that of a Percy Harvin or Randall Cobb: spending most of his time out wide, while also shifting into the backfield for a change of pace. He is a long way from that reality, however, especially since he cannot make it all the way back through this nagging injury.
