Analysis: As a starting dual-threat quarterback for Rich Rodriguez in 2010, Denard Robinson threw for 2,570 yards with a solid passing percentage of 59.8.
When Brady Hoke arrived in 2011, Robinson’s passing percentage and accuracy began to take a dive.
Many pointed to mechanics while some looked at the offensive transition by the new coaching staff.
In 2012, Robinson’s passing reached rock bottom before an elbow injury made his throwing arm all but useless.
Maybe it was a good sign as NFL scouts saw Robinson as more of a return man or receiver than a quarterback.
With his arm actually improving, Robinson is beginning to show he catching abilities. He caught "everything" at today's pro day, according to SBNation.com.
Although he didn't throw any passes, the scouts advised him to keep throwing, reported the Detroit Free Press, as Robinson still retains a glimmer of hope to possibly play some quarterback in the NFL. Robinson also caught punts, ran the 60-yard shuttle and participated in receiver drills.
Robinson's excellent speed and elusiveness, whether as a receiver, return man, running back or even a pistol formation quarterback, will net him a fruitful career in the NFL.
