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. Jan 22 - 3:08 PM

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'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.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson has returned to the team ahead of the Alabama game despite his suspension for last week's game versus FSU.

Head coach Jim McElwain said he met with the team's seniors to help decide Robinson's fate for the game. It can be concluded that the seniors signed off on Robinson despite the receiver missing a chunk of time throughout his career due to suspension. Robinson is certainly talented and could jump to the NFL after this year.

Florida head coach Jim McElwain said he will meet with the seniors to determine junior WR Demarcus Robinson's status with the team.

Specifically, McElwain said the group must determine the direction the team goes with Demarcus Robinson. The receiver was suspended for last weekend's game against FSU. It was not his first, or even second, suspension in the last three seasons. We'd be surprised to see Robinson return for the 2016 season.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson did not play in Saturday's 27-2 loss to Florida State due to a suspension.

Predictably, HC Jim McElwain wouldn't elaborate as to why Robinson was suspended, saying cryptically that "it's just a personal choice a guy made." Robinson's been suspended a whopping four times. Twice as a freshman, once as a sophomore and now once as a junior. Florida did not score a single point on offense on Saturday, which makes Robinson's "personal choice" sting all the more for the Gator faithful.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson caught nine passes for 106 yards in Saturday's 9-7 win over Vanderbilt.

Typical Robinson performance. You had HC Jim McElwain criticizing his route-running during the week and starting Chris Thompson over him. You had the Florida sideline realizing that Robinson was the team's best outside weapon and feeding him the ball as the low-low scoring game got going. You had the jaw-dropping catches. You had the going-to-great-lengths-to-avoid-contact receptions. You had the bone-headed fighting-for-too-many-yards fumble. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound junior is very talented and hard to figure. That makes him great fun to watch and, we assume, a great pain to coach.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson is not starting against Vanderbilt and Chris Thompson has taken his place with the first team.

Who knows if this is injury or punishment related, but Robinson was held out of the starting lineup already this season for missing a team meal. Robinson's season hasn't been great, especially when considering Jim McElwain's 2014 season at CSU with Rashard Higgins, but Robinson has 36 receptions for 371 yards and two touchdowns to his name this season. It is Florida's homecoming.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson caught six passes for 79 yards in Saturday's 21-3 win over Missouri.

The Gator passing offense failed to produce a touchdown. Robinson's likely used to that, as he's scored just twice this season. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound junior's posted a quiet 2015 campaign with 34 catches for 330 yards and the pair of touchdowns through six games. He's yet to turn home a 100-yard receiving effort.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson led the Gators with six receptions for 48 yards in Saturday's win against Tennessee.

"However, he showed inconsistent effort in fighting through press coverage, lined up incorrectly on a snap and saw an easy pass slip through his fingers - precisely the type of lapses in concentration that has kept the clearly gifted Robinson in [Florida HC Jim] McElwain's dog house this season," wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang. Robinson had 53 receptions for 810 yards and seven touchdowns last season but has only 20 catches with a 7.65 YPR this year. "Many of his receptions are coming on quick screens and simple drag routes that won't ease questions scouts have about his reliability as downfield route-runner," Rang wrote.

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson was demoted on the depth chart to third team for missing a team meal.

Jim McElwain was making a statement to the team more than anything. The head coach expects Robinson, who is arguably Florida's top target, to "make the most" of his time on the field Saturday against ECU.

Florida junior Demarcus Robinson dropped to third team WR on the school's depth chart against ECU.

A reason has not been disclosed as of this time, but one is likely on its way. Robinson started 11 games last year and caught five passes for 32 yards in the school's blowout win against New Mexico State. Jim McElwain's offense at Colorado State had one star receiver in 2014, but he loved to spread around the ball. That was evident in the season opener.
