Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson says he has asked the NFL draft advisory board for its opinion of where he’d be selected were he to enter the 2012 draft.
“I did, but we’ll see what happens,” Robinson told ESPN.com, adding that he will “most likely” stay at Michigan.
As a passer, Robinson is nowhere near ready to play in the NFL. If he wants to play quarterback in the NFL, he’s going to have to return to Michigan and get a whole lot better. If Robinson is interested in changing positions, however, some NFL teams might like his potential as a slot receiver or a return man. He’s a phenomenal athlete who has great instincts with the ball in his hands.
In fact, he’s a good enough athlete that there’s almost certainly a place for him in the NFL. Just not as a quarterback, and probably not until 2013.
