Former Michigan Wolverines star Denard Robinson has spent the past few months working out as a wide receiver for NFL scouts, but that won’t sop the former quarterback from showing off his arm and throwing at the Michigan Pro Day.
According to reports, Robinson plans to throw passes at the Pro Day workouts to show NFL scouts the nerve damage in his elbow is making progress.
“I’m probably 70, 60 percent right now and it’s getting better and better,” Robinson said on NFL AM Friday morning. “Every day I feel like it’s getting better. From the Senior Bowl to now it’s like night and day. I feel like I can grab things and be able to throw the ball like I want to…it feels better now to grip.”
Robinson’s skills as a wide receiver have raised some concerns among scouts.
He certainly has the athletic ability to make it in the NFL, but his hands are less than ideal and his arm is not good enough to translate to the next level. That leaves talent evaluators wondering where they should play Robinson.
When it all is said and done, expect Robinson to find a home in the league as a return specialist and Wildcat quarterback. Outside of that, his options are limited.
