The tight end position has been a revolving door for the New York Giants, but second year player Adrien Robinson could be the answer the team has been looking for.
There is building hype around Adrien Robinson, the "JPP of tight ends," as he's been referred to.
He was drafted in the 4th round (127th overall) in the 2012 NFL Draft and the departure of Martellus Bennett in the offseason left a void for a pass catching tight end that can inline block.
Robinson has working with Giants TE coach Mike Pope, who has previously mentored Jeremy Shockey, Kevin Boss and Jake Ballard.
Robinson is still developing, but Pope likes what he has seen this offseason and thinks Robinson is ready to make an impact.
"Adrien Robinson appears to have gone into the land of the believers," Pope said, via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN New York.
"And yes he has been making some good progress. He is doing a lot of the assignment things correctly. Now we have to get him to adjust to the way the defense is playing on each particular play and to make the best decisions based on how the defense is playing. But he is running well and he has his weight down some.
"The quarterback is starting to find him," Pope continued. "He is hard to miss –- he is the tallest tree in the forest out there. So he is a good target. But we are more than mildly pleased with the progress that he has made from an assignment standpoint."
