Jaguars to keep rookie RB Denard Robinson busy

While praising rookie Denard Robinson @DenardX's burst during Jaguars rookie minicamp, GM David Caldwell said the plan is to get the former Michigam quarterback 10-15 snaps per game plus touches as a returner. Projected as a wide receiver in the NFL entering the draft, Jacksonville plans on using Robinson as a running back.

Fantasy Analysis:

That's some lofty goal for a rookie switching positions, but a comment that shows Jacksonville's desire to put the ball into the speedy Robinson's hand. Another factor, the Jaguars don't exactly have many game-breakers outside of Maurice Jones-Drew @Jones_Drew32. Robinson could pick up the second most touches among the running backs, though Justin Forsett @JForsett is the likely handcuff for MJD. Let's see how Robinson handles the switch before making any major "sleeper" proclamations, but we can't wait to gauge his progress.

*The original report from Marvez via Twitter referenced 10-15 touches, but a column the following day changed touches to snaps.
