While Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III opened the door for smaller, mobile quarterbacks in the NFL, Denard Robinson won’t be getting that chance.
Senior Bowl officials told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press that the Michigan quarterback would be playing wide receiver in the Jan. 26 all-star game.
He could also get some looks as a running back, after Michigan used him in various ways after he missed time with an elbow injury.
Robinson set the FBS record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 4,495.
He has Antwaan Randle El-type skills, and could add value to a team on special teams. He has enough arm that he could factor into trick plays, even though no one thinks he’s an every-down quarterback.
So obviously, the Jets are going to draft him.
