Here’s the list of prospects who participated today:
- Punter Alex Butterworth
- Linebacker Glenn Carson
- Receiver Brandon Felder
- Offensive lineman Garry Gilliam
- Offensive lineman Adam Gress
- Defensive tackle DaQuan Jones
- Tight end Matt Lehman
- Defensive back Stephen Obeng-Agyapong
- Receiver Allen Robinson
- Offensive lineman Josh Urschel
- Defensive back Malcolm Willis
As you may already know, there’s one guy on that list who is high on my radar, and likely the team’s radar as well- Allen Robinson. Robinson improved greatly on his combine performance today, posting a 4.4x 40 yard dash and a tremendous 42 inch vertical jump. To put that into perspective, that’s higher than what any receiver posted at the combine, and 5 inches higher than Mike Evans’ vertical jump in February.
Allen Robinson said scouts told him he ran the 40 somewhere in the mid-4.4s. pic.twitter.com/1Cy9PyVWpW

The 6’2″, 220 lb Robinson had 97 receptions, 1,432 yards and 6 touchdowns last season. One of Robinson’s stats that jumps out at you is his yards after catch on screens. You may have seen this in the forum a couple months ago, but here are some gifs that capture how shifty he can be in those situations.
Thanks for stopping by, and as always, be sure to share with your friends.
