Donnie Avery was supposed to be the main man in St. Louis with the departure of the great Torry Holt, but his preseason injury has given third-year wideout Laurent Robinson the chance to step up and Robinson has done just that.
He caught five passes for 87 yards in his debut as a Rams' starter and came back and caught six passes for 54 yards and his first Ram touchdown in the Rams 9-7 loss to Washington.
Laurent Robinson was drafted in the third-round by Atlanta in 2007 and had a good rookie year catching 37 passes for 437 yards and a touchdown.
He fell out of favor in 2008 due to injuries and the rise of Roddy White.
In three preseason contests, Robinson has caught 10 passes for 137 yards.
Considering the Rams have done very little, Robinson is putting up some solid starts. He is worth a look if you are in need of a wide receiver.
