Washington Redskins 2013 NFL Draft Profile: Denard Robinson, Wide Receiver, Michigan

Washington Redskins 2013 NFL Draft Profile: Denard Robinson, Wide Receiver, Michigan.

Why he would be a good Redskin: Making the transition from quarterback to wide receiver, he seems tailor-made for the pistol/option offense. He ran a 4.43 40 yard dash at the Combine and, standing at 5-11, 196 lb’s, he could be a good upgrade to replace Brandon Banks as a returner and sometimes offensive contributor. Imagine the possibilities of a backfield with Griffin, Morris, and Robinson staring at the defense.

Why he won’t be drafted by the Redskins: Drafting Robinson would be taking a flyer on a guy who is new to the wide receiver position and who has struggled in pre-draft events showcasing wide receiver ability. While he is quick and fast, his pass catching and route running was somewhat suspect at the Senior Bowl and Combine. The Redskins have glaring needs at other positions and Robinson would be more of a luxury pick.

Bottom Line: While the idea of adding a new multidimensional athlete to an already high scoring multidimensional offense sounds appealing, everything would have to fall just right for Robinson to make sense as a later round pick. With depth issues at several need positions like secondary and offensive line, the team would hopefully address those needs with quality picks before going in Robinson’s direction.
