    Denard Robinson works out as RB at Michigan’s pro day

    By Gil Brandt...

    ...Denard Robinson, WR (5-foot-10 3/8, 199 pounds) — Robinson was the only player from Michigan who participated at the NFL Scouting Combine. Robinson stood by his combine numbers (he did run an official time of 4.43 seconds in the 40-yard dash). At Michigan’s pro day, Robinson worked out primarily as a running back and return specialist. His best NFL position might be running back — even if he worked out at receiver at the combine — as he can really make things happen when the ball is in his hands.

    It will be a coach’s choice in the NFL for where Robinson ultimately lines up. Whichever team Robinson winds up with will need to have a plan in mind for him.

    There were three notable players at Michigan’s pro day who were not at the combine.
    I think the team that drafts Robinson will end up with one of the biggest sleepers at the RB position in this draft. The QB to RB is not as crazy as one might think (http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/cf...nfl-projection). Michael Robinson successfully went from QB to FB without ever playing the latter. Robinson has at least played RB a handful of game while the rest of the time he played QB in mostly in name only.

    Denard showed he can take a hit, something that most smaller backs are incapable of doing, plus he can run between the tackles. Reminds me of Jamaal Charles a bit. Would be all over this, as a HB.

    Robinson is 5-10 199. Chris Johnson is 5-11-0 191.

    @MoveTheSticks: Justin Pugh (Syracuse OT) should be a 1st rd pick. His name is buzzing in personnel circles. I think he's a better version of Andy Levitre.

    @MoveTheSticks: “@StevePalazzolo: so definitely moving to guard?”>Levitre played OT in college... I think Pugh has a shot at playing LT but would be stud OG

    @MoveTheSticks: Don't get me wrong... I love Levitre. He's a great pro. I gave him high 2nd rd grade at Oregon ST. I graded Pugh a little higher, late 1st.

    As reported earlier, defensive tackle William Campbell measured 6045/311lbs, timed 4.98s-to-5.08s in the forty and completed 35 reps on the bench. The New York Jets and New England Patriots have workouts planned for Campbell, whom I felt should have been invited to the combine.

    The New York Jets will be working out two lesser-known 2013 NFL Draft prospects in Sierra College Wolverines wide receiver Courtney Gardner and Eastern Kentucky cornerback Justin Bell, per a source close to Jets beat writer Kristian Dyer. Gardner is a draft prospect out of a JUCO school who was supposed to transfer to the Oklahoma Sooners, but he was unable to due to academic issues and decided to declare for the draft instead. Both workouts are classified as private workouts for the Jets.

    Gardner has a good blend of size and speed at 6’3″, 215 pounds. He has a lot of athletic ability, and he is a pretty polished route-runner. The upside he provides after the catch is intriguing, and I could see Gardner being a good sleeper pick for the Jets in this draft class to help them add a potential playmaker at the wide receiver position.

    From Tony Pauline, “Besides his large frame the big pass catcher also has the speed (10.7 sec in the 100 meters) to match. Even college coaches in the area are awed by his ability on the field but focusing at the task at hand seems to be an issue.”

    We’ll see if this work out will help the New York Jets shed light on those issues regarding Gardner, and there are some who believe Gardner is one of the biggest sleepers in this draft class.

    @Gil_Brandt: Fast rising tight end prospect Vance McDonald likely will be selected somewhere between picks 50 and 70 in the draft http://t.co/GNm2VIAc5G

    @MoveTheSticks: I was told by those in attendance that San Diego St TE Gavin Escobar ran 4.72 and 4.78 at his pro day.

    @gregcosell: Had great conversation with NFL coach who told me people would be surprised how slow NFL players would run the 40. Not even relevant.

    @gregcosell: Everyone likes home run hitters. Question is how do you categorize traits for backs. Where does straight line speed factor into equation?

    @gregcosell: Patience, vision, stop + start ability, short area burst also important for RB. It's not speed to the hole, it's speed thru the hole.

    @gregcosell: Stanford's Taylor intriguing litmus test this yr. Tough, durable inside grinder w/no special athletic qualities. Where will he get drafted?

    @gregcosell: If run game is offensive foundation, you need a feature back. Otherwise offense will not function as designed. Sometimes that's overlooked.

    @gregcosell: Feature back not function of # of carries. It's how offense is structured. Ridley not feature back in that sense for NE. Brady foundation.

    @gregcosell: We all know it's QB game but how many of those QBs are there? If you don't have top one, you still need to run offense. What's the approach?

    @gregcosell: It's become same argument every yr now. RBs devalued, don't draft them in 1st rd. Then it's the season + you need to run the ball.

    @gregcosell: Argument you can get good players in later rds means nothing. Then why rate players? You evaluate + put a board together. That's the process

    @gregcosell: @CraigColeman12 I don't believe Taylor can be foundation back in NFL. I think Lacy can. Much more skilled runner.

    Worth noting: Steelers' braintrust had dinner with Tennessee QB Tyler Bray before attending his Pro Day.

    Yeah this was a given probably the fastest a guy will ever run is via his training for the combine and pro day.

    A guy like Keller is a classic example, just tore up the combine with speed but played a lot slower in the pros

    I hate to think what Eric Smiths 40 time would have been the last few years. No better than 4.8 i bet.

    @TonyPauline: Justin Hunter/WR/Tennessee caught ball very well today at pro-day.

    @TonyPauline: Told Tyler Bray/QB/Tennessee scripted his own workout and did whatever scouts requested. Went over well.

    @Gil_Brandt: Star Lotulelei was cleared to work out today by cardiologist Josef Stehlik, recommended to Star's agent by 49ers. Will visit again in April.

    @Gil_Brandt: Agent Bruce Tollner didn't want Lotulelei to run cuz of conditioning, but Star said he wanted to run w/ teammates. Ran 2 40s (5.31, 5.36)

    Hunter will be drafted later than he should be. In fact the whole draft class for WRs is wonky.

    -Allen's being vastly overlooked.
    -Hopkins should be the 1st WR taken. but he won't be.
    -Patterson's going to be taken half a round earlier than he should be. Probably even a full round.
    -Woods and Hunter are top of the 2nd round talents that will slip into the 3rd.
    -Patton is grossly over-valued because he's so transparent. He's a great well-rounded WR, but he has no ceiling.

    I agree with just about every assessment here..... What the hell is going on?
