Chiefs selected Florida WR Demarcus Robinson with the No. 126 overall pick in the 2016 draft.
Robinson (6'1/203) spent three years with the Gators before going pro, totaling a 106-1,355-9 (12.8 YPR) receiving line across 20 starts. He led the Gators in catches in each of his final two seasons. Robinson's Combine workout disappointed, running 4.59 with a 34 1/2-inch vertical. The nephew of ex-Bears and Vikings WR Marcus Robinson, Demarcus was suspended four times in college, lacks route-running polish, and isn't quite the athlete he was billed to be. Albeit an exciting college player, Robinson probably has a third-receiver ceiling in the NFL. Apr 30 - 1:34 PM

An anonymous NFL scout says Florida WR Demarcus Robinson has "a whole slew of things but somebody will ignore it."

"He's a gifted kid but you've got to get past all the off-the-field stuff," the scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, predicting that Robinson will get taken in Rd. 3. Robinson has admitted to failing three drug tests and undergoing rehabilitation. "I don't care," a different scout said. "He is (expletive) talented. You should see him run after the catch." A third scout was less generous to Robinson. "Father shot himself (suicide) when he was 2 years old," he said. "Not arrogant or surly or anything. But I wouldn't even mess with him."

Florida WR Demarcus Robinson visited the Jets on Wednesday, according to Manish Mehta.

Mehta warns to "keep an eye on him late." Robinson is a really fun watch on the field. He has all of the skills to separate and the speed to maximize that separation. However, off of the field, Robinson ran into issue after issue with the program, missing multiple games and dropping to the depth chart. A day three, fifth or sixth round selection, makes the most sense.

Florida WR Demarcus Robinson visited the Raiders on Tuesday, according to Mike Kaye.

Robinson's time at Florida certainly had its peaks and valleys. Robinson is a talented player who can create separation with his athleticism, but his standing with the team was in question on multiple occasions. Visits can be used to get to know a prospect for a longer amount of time than what is allotted during a private workout, which could be of use in this case. Robinson is a late round prospect or undrafted free agent.

Florida WR Demarcus Robinson did nothing on his Pro Day to distinguish himself from his Combine numbers.

While we've seen a boatload of players magically improve their numbers in the space between the NFL Scouting Combine and Pro Day, Robinson wasn't among them. Let's play a little compare and contrast. At the Combine, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds. On Pro Day? 4.59 seconds and 4.60 seconds. The 6-foot-1, 203-pounder notched a 34.5-inch vertical jump in Indianapolis. On Pro Day? 33.5 inches. And on down the line. They're all more or less the same numbers. Testing numbers aside, Robinson was hit with four suspensions during his time at Florida and a college director called his Combine interview "horrible" and "the worst we had this year." There are giant red flags surrounding the former Gator at this point.

A college director said Florida WR Demarcus Robinson "was horrible, the worst we had this year" in his interview.

Robinson didn't just muff that interview. Another college director speaking with Yahoo Sports said: "We pushed him a little on the suspensions [four over the course of three years under two head coaches], and he pushed right back. Not what you wanted to hear." Just about the only good news from Robinson's Combine was that he did well in the three-cone drill and the 60-yard shuttle. Everything else was meh, earning him a 91-percent athletic testing similarity score with Andre King. "It’s not the most exciting receiver class in recent draft history, but there’s a solid middle class, and Robinson’s character red flags could get him lost in the shuffle," commented Yahoo's Eric Edholm.

Florida WR Demarcus Robinson had a 91-percent similarity score with Andre King based on Combine athletic testing.

King was drafted by the Browns out of Miami in the seventh round of the 2001 draft. He would go on to play three seasons in the NFL. At least athletically, Robinson has a similar profile. The 6-foot-1, 204-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds and registered a vertical leap of 34.5 inches during the NFL Scouting Combine last week. Team interviews figure to have a greater impact on his draft stock than mere athleticism, though, as Robinson was suspended a whopping four times during his time with the Gators. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline loves his game-tape (calling him a top-15 prospect based on film), but rightly noted that he has "as much to gain or lose from the interview process" as any prospect in the country.

No prospect "has as much to gain or lose from the interview process" as Florida WR Demarcus Robinson, according to Tony Pauline.

"On film, Robinson grades as a top-15 prospect and would challenge Laquon Treadwell as the draft’s best receiver," Pauline writes, which is immense praise. The evaluation is not that clear cut, however, as we remember blurbing Robinson for numerous off-field events and suspensions, some of which nearly landed him off of the team. Per Pauline, some of those offenses included three marijuana violations and a missed curfew. Robinson, who could post a ridiculous workout, performed at a high level against many top corners when on the field and in good standing. We question his ability to high point catches, but that is just one layer of receiver play.

NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein wrote that a scout he spoke with called Florida WR Demarcus Robinson "Mr. Suspension."

Indeed, Robinson was suspended four times during his troubled career with the Gators. The 6-foot-1, 204-pounder's going to have to face up to that during next week's NFL Scouting Combine. Noted Zierlein, "NFL teams have been pouring over Robinson's background with a fine-toothed comb heading into their combine interviews with him." Over the course of his three-year Florida career, he caught 105 passes for 1,353 yards and six touchdowns. If he's drafted, he'll likely be a late-round selection. Again, if he's drafted. Given his history, that's far from a guarantee.

Florida WR Demarcus Robinson declared for the NFL Draft.

Robinson is a strange cat. In and out of the doghouse throughout his Gator career, Robinson's entree was reported on December 21. He tweeted in response: "I never told anyone I was entering the draft, what is this???" Did he announce his intention after that? Of course not. Robinson's name just showed up on the early entree list. He's a highly talented player whose coaches -- and he had multiple staffs -- never truly figured out. His behavior regarding this decision isn't the best start to his NFL career. Walter Football projects him as a Rd. 6-UDFA pick.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes that Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson "is leaning towards entering the draft."

"The feedback thus far from scouts has been Robinson would be making a mistake if he enters the draft. Hence the confusion and lack of a final decision to this point is understandable," Pauline wrote. On the season, the Florida prospect has recorded 47 receptions for 505 yards, with 2 touchdowns through the air and 1 on the ground.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson tweeted "I never told anyone I was entering the draft, what is this???" after seeing stories stating the Gator would be entering the NFL after this season.

Of course the Robinson situation is not as clear as it appeared. Head coach Jim McElwain told reporters that Robinson, Kelvin Taylor and Alex McCalister would all be entering the draft. Technically, Robinson did not deny that statement, but did not confirm it either. Due to his up and down time at Florida, the expectation is Robinson does end up leaving for the NFL. But all non-seniors have until mid-January to make that decision.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson will declare for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Robinson's time at Florida has been rocky. He faced multiple suspensions and never solidified his place as the school's top receiver despite possessing the talent to do so. The key word is talent, and Robinson has enough to warrant a draft pick and could be a better pro than collegiate player.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson "is strongly considering entering the NFL Draft," reports NFL.com's Rand Getlin.

Robinson is a talented player and a pain in his coaches' collective butts. Robinson was suspended twice as a freshman, once as a sophomore and once this year as a junior. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder is going to have to ace the interview portion of the draft process.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson will "get a few snaps" against Alabama.

Robinson missed last week's game against FSU due to suspension, which certainly was not his first. Head coach Jim McElwain said he would meet with the school's seniors to determine Robinson's immediate future with the team. Obviously that group of players signed off on Robinson playing. It could be his second to last game at Florida.
