A second-round pick out of Penn State, Robinson had been impressing coaches in camp with his combination of size and speed.
"One of the things we asked of him was to come in here and not just start from Day One again," Fisch said. "We didn't want Groundhog Day. We didn't want a repeat performance. We didn't want it to be like nothing has changed from the day before. So, how much does he know and recall? What he showed me is he actually dug deeper into the plays."
Fisch said Bortles, who remains the No. 2 quarterback behind Chad Henne, has a good grasp of the system.
"One of the things you worry about is how does a guy handle something he's never done before," Fisch said. "He's had OTAs and minicamp. Now, he's got four weeks to figure out what he's going to do. I thought he really prepared, so he came back ahead of where I thought he was going to be."
The Jaguars are using the 6-5, 230-pound Bortles on rollouts, according to the paper.
"I love the fact that when Blake moves, he's a strong, tough guy to bring down," Fisch said. "He also throws the ball nicely on the move. It's something clearly he's done throughout his career in college. That's part of our system, so they have to do that."
"He’s pretty much given us all the tools. Whatever we see out there, if we have to throw it every down because they’re giving so many guys at the line of scrimmage, we’ll throw it," Henne said.
Henne said he has a better grasp of the offense in Year 2.
"Jedd has been putting a lot in our shoulders, more audibles, but it’s really just taking ownership of it. If I see something out there and I check out of something, he gets excited. It’s exciting for us because it shows him that we’re understanding the defense, understanding the offense and getting in the best plays that will work," Henne said.
