Another potential second round WR steal Dan Leberfeld
In some drafts, Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson might be considered a first round lock.
But in the 2014 draft, which is so deep at receiver, he’s probably going to go in the second round.
The fact that he might slip do to the proliferation of top-shelf receivers, isn’t something the Detroit-native is obsessing over.
“The depth – it is what it is,” Robinson said. “That’s something that’s out of my control. I really don’t try to focus on that too much. I just try to go in every day and every workout to improve my game.”
Playing under former New England Patriots offensive coordinator, and current Houston Texans head coach, Bill O’Brien, the last two years in State College, helped prepare Robinson for the pro game.
“He [challenged] me as a player and as a person each and every day to improve my route-running and improve my play-making ability,” Robinson said. “Going into the off-season, he’d give me a list of things to work on and I’d try to fine-tune that each and every off-season and that’s helped me.”
The 6-2, 220-pound Robinson set a Penn State record for receptions (97) in 2013.
Robinson could sneak into the late first round, but will likely go in the second.
And could turn into an excellent second round value for the team that grabs him.
