02/20/2014 - 2014 NFL Combine: From 40 times to Fritos, 10 Bold Predictions: 8. Sleepers at Receiver. Extending the limb a bit, write down the names of these five wide receivers: Fresno State's Davante Adams, Wyoming's Robert Herron, New Mexico State's Austin Franklin, Saginaw Valley State's Jeff Janis and Colorado's Paul Richardson. Each may post all-around workouts that rival or perhaps even beat the efforts this week from Clemson's Sammy Watkins or Southern Cal's Marqise Lee, the two best receivers in the 2014 draft. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/22/2014 - 2014 Senior Bowl Wednesday...Frankly, while Huff made some splashy plays, more consistency was shown from Herron and even Northwestern's Kain Colter, who is making the transition to receiver after starring as an option quarterback with the Wildcats. While perhaps best known for his straight-line speed, Herron has impressed scouts with his stout frame, competitiveness and willingness to extend for the contested grab. He made the catch of the day early in practice, soaring high to snatch a high, hard pass from Boyd along the left sideline. While clearly a work in progress as a route-runner, Colter (5-foot-11, 199 pounds) has the agility and balance to generate separation and caught the ball cleanly. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/21/2014 - 2014 Senior Bowl: 10 observations from Monday's North practice...3. Speaking of the wide receivers, I really like the group on the North team. The South squad might have the only senior wideout who ends up being drafted in the top-50 picks (Jordan Matthews), but the mid-round talent at receiver on the North is above average. Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis, Wyoming WR Robert Herron and Oregon WR Josh Huff all looked good on Monday before, after and during the catch. All three have a legitimate chance to be drafted in the top-100 and Monday reminded everyone why. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

08/28/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2013: WR Robert Herron showed he can be the deep threat the Cowboys need to create the explosion plays that make their spread-option offense tougher to defend. He had 173 yards and two TDs on five receptions against Texas in the season opener and had 10 receptions for 187 yards and two TDs against San Diego State. Herron had 376 receiving yards combined during his last three games and could be ready for a breakout year as a senior in 2013. - The Sports Xchange
07/19/2013 - 2013 BILETNIKOFF AWARD WATCH LIST: Robert Herron, Wyoming, SR..."We are extremely proud of Robert (Herron) for earning a spot on the Biletnikoff Watch List," said head coach Dave Christensen.

He caught five passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener at Texas, and he had a career best 10 receptions for a career high 187 yards and two TDs versus San Diego State in the season finale.
