With the NFL draft not far away, Denard Robinson will have a unique opportunity to display his talents in the upcoming bowl game.
Since Robinson’s ability as a passer was questioned last season, there’s been a debate as to where Shoelace could play in the National Football League.
When Robinson’s elbow injury surfaced in the Nebraska game, Brady Hoke was forced to find other uses for the dual-threat quarterback. Michigan will conclude its season Jan. 1 in either the Outback or Capitol One Bowl. The opponent will either be Georgia, LSU or South Carolina.
By then, Robinson might be able to throw the football. “I would think he would play quarterback, maybe wideout, maybe running back,” Hoke told ESPN during his Monday press conference.
Truth is, Robinson’s speed, ability to change directions and his gift of making defenders miss gives him a fighting chance to make it at several positions.
Let’s see where Robinson might land in the NFL.
