Michigan quarterback-turned-receiver Denard Robinson is learning his new position this week at the Senior Bowl, but scouts aren’t high on his ability to contribute at the next level,  as NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline is reporting that scouts view Robinson as a late-round pick. One AFC scout said this regarding his week in Mobile:

I think he took himself from like the third, fourth round to like the sixth, seventh round.

Reggie McNeal anyone?

Make sure you check out Erik Galko’s article over at Optimum Scouting  in which he did a Progression Analysis of the Senior Bowl North QBs. It was very in-depth, and here’s a brief excerpt of it:

 

3. Zac Dysert, Miami (OH)
-29 drop backs, 1 “useless snap”
-28 throws, 1.4 progressions made on average
-64% correct reads made, 22% incorrect reads
-4 elite ball placement, 6 poor ball placement throws

Notes: As you can tell by the numbers, Dysert struggled mightily with inconsistency, but didn’t suffer in his ability to transition his eyes to the coverage. However, two concerns he brought up this week were his poor ball placement in the short area, with passes consistently sailing, and his lackluster ability to use his eyes to read/move the safety.
