2013 NFL Combine: Michigan's Robinson ready for everything
Teams want QB to try something new
INDIANAPOLIS -- Denard Robinson is embracing change, but he still feels like a quarterback.
The 5-10, 180-pound dual-threat passer played wide receiver at the Senior Bowl in Mobile. In Indianapolis, he talked to suitors about trying his hand at cornerback, returner and even third-down running back.
"They talked to me about it, just want to get the ball in my hands," he said.
Robinson is "60 percent" recovered from a hand injury that could still require surgery. But on Sunday, he's planning to show he has one thing in abundance: speed.
Robinson, who said he fields hundreds of punts and is catching as many passes as he can to prepare for the combine and his pro day, infamously said he might be able to challenge Usain Bolt, the Jamaican Olympic sprinter who won gold in the 100 and 200 meters, in a 40-yard sprint.
"You'll see tomorrow," he said. "I want to run something pretty fast."
Even without a true position in the NFL, Robinson doesn't view himself as a gamble.
"A lot of people gamble, don't you think?" Robinson said with a smile. "I think I'd be a pretty sure bet."
