Michigan QB Decides It's Better to Receive
>He wasn’t the fastest, but he was fast.
Michigan’s Denard Robinson, a converted quarterback, finished tied for the seventh-best 40-yard dash time, 4.43 seconds, among receivers Sunday at the NFL Draft Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
More importantly, he showed he can catch the football, even if his form needs some work.
Everybody, of course, already knew that Robinson can run with the best. The question is whether he can catch the ball consistently enough to make the transition to receiver in the NFL, along with fielding punts and kicks to become a return specialist.
