While praising rookie Denard Robinson '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.
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 . Robinson could pick up the second most touches among the running backs, though Justin Forsett 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.
