    Robinson is in an awkward position. He alternated between quarterback and wide receiver until his senior season, when, as a quarterback, he blossomed into the Big Ten Conference Offensive Player of the Year and finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy vote. Some teams want to see Robinson at wide receiver. He said he wants to do whatever will get him onto a roster.

    "The scouts want to see me do other things," Robinson said. "When I asked Norm (Chow) about it, he said, 'Mike, you're a heck of a quarterback. I kind of shy away from doing that.' That made me feel good."

    Chow didn't finalize plays for Robinson at receiver until Wednesday morning. They were scribbled on the back of a sheet of paper. He didn't look lost as a wideout Wednesday afternoon, and he returned a couple of kicks, as well.

    i myself seeing robinson end up becoming a safety...he has good size and very good speed. he has had some trouble catching passes at the senior bowl and that could improve and he may be a good receiver. i dont see him being a qb at the pro level maybe a 3rd string, but in my mind he will become a safety.

    No, but it's probably easier converting someone to safety, than to quarterback or receiver (Marcus Randall). But an unspectacular showing at QB and almost too little work at WR has probably hurt his stock a lot.

    I think he could play both. If he played QB, it would be a couple of years before he would be ready for NFL action, as a WR, he could play as a 3rd immediately for most teams

    it didn't seem to effect Matt Jones much

    Robinson is projected as a 4th or late 3rd

    i think it's a forgone conclusion (at least from what I've gathered) that MR will enter the draft as a WR prospect

    True. I don't know how Robinson compares to Jones, but it's definetly a possibility.

    He compares more to guys like Antwaan Randle-El and Hines Ward of the Steelers; he would be a very versatile player for any team that drafts him.

    He'd be very good with trick plays and such.

    Well Jones only went that high because he was a big time gamer in college that tested out really well at the combine. I doubt Robinson can move into the first or second rounds unless he timed at 4.45 or better at the combine.
