Jacksonville Jaguars’ Denard Robinson Shines During Rookie Minicamp
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Denard Robinson is going back to college with a little NFL experience.
The former Michigan star made his debut with Jacksonville on Friday, showing off his speed and versatility as the Jaguars opened a three-day rookie minicamp.
The only negative was that the Jaguars won't get to see more for a while. Robinson headed back to Ann Arbor following practice for his college graduation. He will miss the final two days of camp.
Robinson, a fifth-round pick making the transition from quarterback to running back, took the majority of repetitions with the first-team offense and even upstaged first-rounder Luke Joeckel.
With maize-and-blue clad fans cheering his moves, Robinson broke several long runs and caught all but one pass thrown his way. He lined up at running back, fullback and receiver.
