Found April 29, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
After taking former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson in the 5th round of this year’s draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars plan on using him as a running back. Robinson is a talented athlete that can also play wide receiver, but the Jags’ plan right now is to use him as a running back.  I’m sure they may also split him out in the slot as a receiver and also have him run routes out of the back field.  They would be smart to use him the same way the Saints use Darren Sproles.   Need NFL Tickets?
