Jaguars | Allen Robinson drawing praise
Wed, 30 Jul 2014 19:07:55 -0700
Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson (and fellow rookie WR Marqise Lee) have seen plenty of opportunity at training camp with WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and WR Ace Sanders (personal) sidelined. Robinson has been showing off his size, physical nature and good heads, drawing the praise of general manager Dave Caldwell and head coach Gus Bradleye. "What I like about him are his strong hands," head coach Gus Bradley said Wednesday, July 30. "He makes catches away from his body."
Robinson was seeing reps with the first-team offense even before Shorts went down, and he appears to be heading for a much more meaningful role than originally anticipated. Right now, consider Robinson a deep sleeper on a team with a young and inexperienced quarterback. Adding Robinson in the final rounds on draft day is a good move, but don't rely upon him as a starter, or anything close to it, just yet.
