When he attended the NFL Combine this winter former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson did so as a wide receiver, as that's the position he'll likely end up playing in the NFL. Whether or not Robinson will be able to make the transition from college quarterback to NFL receiver remains to be seen, but what we know is that with his incredible athletic talents, some NFL team is going to take a chance on him in the draft.

What we also know is that when Major League Baseball holds its draft this summer, no baseball team will take a chance on Robinson as a pitcher. Not after seeing the first pitch he threw out before the Detroit Tigers' game on Tuesday.

Though, in Robinson's defense, at least he wasn't wearing the same pants Johnny Manziel wore throwing out a first pitch on Sunday.
