As expected, all eyes were on Denard Robinson during Michigan’s Pro Day on Friday. Robinson was out there running routes as a receiver, running out of the backfield and fielding punts in front of scouts from every NFL team.
Robinson, who is projected to be drafted as an NFL receiver, could be taken anywhere from the second round to the fourth or fifth round during April’s draft. According to MLive, Robinson did not drop a pass from former Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour and was perfect in fielding punts.
Robinson was scrutinized heavily during the week of the Senior Bowl for being mechanical and unnatural in his routes, cuts and catching habits. That all changed in the time leading up to Friday.
“Every scout said (at pro day), ‘You got better,’” Robinson said. “And when someone in the NFL says you got better, that’s a good thing. But I want to continue to get better, continue to impress.”
If the improvement holds up, he might just see second round money.
