Jersey number: #8
Last year: I ranked Robinson #57 and said he would be a backup returner and slot receiver. He was both of those things and had 1 catch for 43 yards to go with 1 kick return for 23 yards.
Robinson is a former 4-star athlete from Texas who got a lot of Michigan fans buzzing early, based largely on one high school move that started off great but ended with him stumbling to the ground untouched. Beyond that he has 2 career catches for 56 yards, 1 kick return for 23, and 1 punt return for 11. And once the Brady Hoke regime took over, it seemed to make Robinson even more of an afterthought.
Three- and four-receiver sets will still be a large part of Michigan’s offense in 2011, but that doesn’t mean the new coaching staff favors 5’9″, 175 lb. receivers to play in the slot. If Robinson wants to make an impact on the team, it will probably be in the same way that he’s kinda sorta had a chance to play in the past few seasons – on kick and punt returns. Especially with a quarterback who’s only 6′ tall, the team needs taller receivers running routes over the middle of the field. Robinson looks like he might be a bit player for the rest of his career.
Prediction: Backup kick and punt returner
