Denard meets with the Lions - Monday, January 21, 2013 3:35 PM
0
 


Robinson said he met with a handful of NFL teams Sunday night, including the Detroit Lions, and he said the feedback he has gotten from every team has been consistent.
“They like me,” he said. “They just said I got to show them I can catch. That’s what they say.”
Robinson, who caught just three passes for 31 yards in his Michigan career, said he never considered staying away from the Senior Bowl, which some high-ranking draft prospects do for fear that they’ll hurt their stock.

Actually, Denard told the Lions he couldn't catch, nothing to see here, move along

There's only one team he should be begging to pick him up and that's the Pats.  Belichick is a master of picking up guys that others pass on and turning them into good players that excel in his systems.

He doesn't need to land on a dysfunctional team...he needs to go somewhere in the 3rd or 4th round to a contender looking to ease him into the pro game and give him a fighting chance to be an impact guy on a winning team.

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

Not going to be left in the 3RD or 4TH. Projected as a second round pick. Love it. Couldn't be happier for him.

I just hope he can beef up some.  I'd hate to see him catching passes over the middle.  Love to see him go to the Rams.  They need playmakers to go along with Bradford.

Denard is exactly what the Lions need.  With personalities like Titus Young, Robinson would be just what the doctor ordered in that locker room.
 
That being said, I think he'd thrive more as a player with the Pats.

Im sure Carolina has potential to look at him. We did pretty good with a "small" steve smith.

Would love to see him on my favorite NFL team. Would be ecstatic if this happened.

And I am sitting here a fan of the only team in the league where Denard may actually be an upgrade at the QB position.

From what I have been reading, his NFL prospects continue to dwindle.  I hope that General Studies Degree from Michigan comes in handy

someone will still take him the 4th round or so.  If someone like Eric Crouch can get drafted, someone will take a flyer on Denard knowing he'll be a project.
 
 
He had a better day 3 at Senior Bowl practice.  But he is also still playing with two numb fingers as the nerve injury is not completely healed.

Until he runs his 40 and then everyone will be drooling over him again and he'll be picked up in the 2nd/3rd round.
 
Go Blue!!

He'll always be a legend in AA, so even if pro football doesn't pan out, as long as he stays relevant to the program and CFB in general, he could probably do local commercials and the public speaking circuit for a long time.  With the shoelaces and dreads, they kid obviously knows how to define and promote himself.
 
My point is no one will need to hold a benefit for him anytime soon.

I want Denard to come to Green Bay! Dust off the #5 jersey and call him the Next Paul Hornung. A running back who can throw the occasional option pass, and catch some passes out of the backfield from Bart Starr, i mean Aaron Rodgers!

Denard could definitely be a productive player for the Lions.  With Calvin demanding double teams and stretching the field vertically, a guy like Denard could excel in shorter underneath routes designed to get him the ball in space.  I don't see him being an every down receiver, but he could still bring value.
