Jaguars selected Penn State WR Allen Robinson with the No. 61 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft
Robinson (6-foot-2 5/8, 220) was the featured player in Bill O'Brien's offense as a sophomore and junior, finishing his three-year career with 177 catches for 2,479 yards (14.0 YPR) and 17 scores. Robinson led the Big Ten in receptions and receiving yards in each of his final two years. Although Robinson lacks vertical speed (4.60), he combines leaping ability (39-inch vertical, 10-foot-7 broad jump) with ideal size and fluidity, and can both out-jump and overpower defensive backs. He was also dynamic after the catch in college, and has some poor man's Demaryius Thomas to his game. Long term, Robinson projects as a high-end No. 2 to lower-end No. 1 receiver in the NFL. He'll immediately compete for significant snaps opposite Cecil Shorts in Jacksonville along with fellow second-round rookie Marqise Lee. May 9 - 9:19 PM

Yahoo Sports' Rand Getlin reports that the panthers are traveling to meet Penn State WR Allen Robinson.

"The Panthers are traveling for a last minute meeting with former Penn State WR Allen Robinson, per a source," Getlin tweeted. With Robinson's stock on the rise, the Panthers are in range to select the Nittany Lions prospect. It might take pick No.28 to select Robinson, with no guarantee that he'll be around by their No.60 pick in the draft. If the Panthers brass is making a last minute road trip to meet with Robinson, it's quite possible Carolina is thinking of him as a first round prospect.

Former NFL scout Russ Lande believes Penn State WR Allen Robinson is going to be a first-round pick.

"I think teams that had concerns about speed are at least saying, ‘You know what, we have no doubt he’s at least average.’ If he’s average in speed, all the other attributes are outstanding. He’s going to be a first-round pick," Lande said on the Big Ten Network last month. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Robinson has seen his stock rise over the last month, due to a strong combine and the ability to showcase his speed (4.42 to 4.47 forty). Evaluators have been impressed with his ball skills and his ability to dominate smaller defenders with his size. The Penn State prospect could be a target at the end of the first-round. There could be a WR-needy team that wants to trade up from their second round selection, if they know another team is planning to take him off the board. It's safe to say, that Robinson could go in the first two rounds of the draft.

MLive.com's Justin Rogers reports that the Lions have worked out Penn State WR Allen Robinson.

Since the Nittany Lions prospect played his high school football in the Detroit area, the Lions were able to invite him to their annual local workout. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Robinson was a first-team all-Big Ten and third-team All-American last year. On the season, Robinson hauled in 97 passes for 1,432 yards and six touchdowns. Robinson's stock has been rising as of late, and he is projected to go in the first two rounds of the draft.

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin were both on hand Tuesday for Penn State WR Allen Robinson's pro day.

Both in-state coaches have a need at WR, so file this news away. Robinson reportedly impressed evaluators during the workout, with NFL.com's Gil Brandt tweeting that Robinson's "stock will be up." Robinson weighed in at 208 after tipping the scales at 220 in Indy, one possible reason that he improved on his numbers from a mediocre showing at the combine.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt believes that Penn State WR Allen Robinson's "stock will be up" after his pro day performance.

"WR Allen Robinson having big day at Penn State pro day. 42 Vertical jump, 11 Broad jump, sub-4.5 40. Stock will be up after today," Brandt tweeted. The two-time Big Ten receiver of the year may not have break away speed, but he does make up for it with size (6-foot-3, 220 pounds)and athleticism. Teams are impressed with his ability to dominate smaller defenders after the catch, as well as his versatility to play inside or outside, and win at the catch point. Robinson could hear his name called in the second round of the draft.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah praised Penn State WR Allen Robinson for his yards after catch ability.

"Wish (Robinson) had more juice but I love the way he fights for every inch after the catch. Very physical," Jeremiah tweeted. According to Rotoworld contributor Greg Peshek, Robinson's yards after the catch averaged out to 7.56, a very solid number. He also has nice vision and block anticipation as a ball carrier.
Mar 11 - 9:53 AM

Penn State WR Allen Robinson ran an official 4.60 forty time and leaped to a 39-inch vertical.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound receiver's unofficial times were announced at 4.56 and 4.60, about as expected. Robinson displays good body control, run after the catch skill and foot speed to separate from defenders. He might not be a first-round pick, but the productive former Nittany Lions' star will likely be selected in the top-50.

Draft insider Tony Pauline ranked three wide receivers as sure-fire first round picks.

Clemson's Sammy Watkins, Texas A&M's Mike Evans, and USC's Marqise Lee all took home first-round grades from the evaluator. Penn State's Allen Robinson and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks landed on the 1-2 round bubble, while Florida State's Kelvin Benjamin and LSU's Odell Beckham Jr. received second-round grades.

Penn State junior WR Allen Robinson will forgo his final season of eligibility and enter the NFL draft.

Again, it is not a surprise, since every eligible receiver has decided to enter the draft rather than return to school. Robinson really turned it on this year while catching passes from Christian Hackenberg, displaying good body control and foot speed to separate. He might not be a first-round pick, but Robinson will likely be selected in the top-50.
Jan 2 - 2:57 PM

Penn State junior WR Allen Robinson is dealing with a "little bit of a shoulder injury," according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

O'Brien expects Robinson to play against Purdue. The junior has posted a great season, displaying good body control and run after the catch skill. Since he is working with a young but talented quarterback, we aren't sold on if Robinson declares for Mays draft.

Penn State junior WR Allen Robinson caught 11 passes for 165 yards in the school's 24-17 win over Illinois.

Robinson could not be stopped and displayed the excellent body control to in at the catch point that we have become accustomed to. He is a just a junior, but we wouldn't be surprised to see Robinson declare for May's draft.

Penn State junior WR Allen Robinson caught 12 passes for 173 yards and one touchdown in a 63-14 loss to Ohio State.

Would you believe that Robinson caught exactly 12 balls for 173 yards earlier this month against Indiana as well? Robinson put up huge numbers last year -- 77 catches, 1018 yards and 11 touchdowns -- and is doing so again. The Nittany Lion has hauled in 55 catches for 878 yards and six touchdowns in 2013.

Penn State junior WR Allen Robinson is listed as probable for Saturday's game against Michigan.

Robinson is dealing with a hip injury, but it certainly hasn't impacted his play this season. He's registered 38 receptions for 621 yards and five touchdowns in five games. The Wolverines do have a solid secondary, so Robinson's matchup is worth watching.

Penn State junior WR Allen Robinson caught 12 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns in a 44-24 loss to Indiana.

Robinson is one of the best receivers in the country and was targeted early and often with Penn State playing from behind in the second half. He benefits from a quarterback like Christian Hackenberg.
