Well hopefully they don't take him. I want him for my Saints.
He is going to provide someone with a nice talented position player.
I really hope they take him...just not in the first round.
He's third round at best iMO
As much as i love Denard, i don't know if i want the Lions to take him. For starters, I'm not totally convinced his skill set will translate to the NFL and if it does, I'M worried about his longevity. The Lions have a lot of holes they need to fill and slot/ 3rd down back is 4th or 5th on the list of needs. For his sake, i hope a team with some stability will take him.
The Lions should be able to get him at the top of the third round if they wish. Even though they have more needs than DR.
We could use an athlete like Denard. Plus he isn't some trouble makers we've been drafting lately.
He'd be an interesting change-of-pace to the bruising style of LeShoure and Bell.
Also, I think he'd be a better kick/punt returner than Stefan Logan.
I think Denard would be better served elsewhere. I can see Chip Kelly taking him, but I don't know about the Philly crowd and how they'll treat him.
I'd like to see Miami, Denver, Seattle, San Diego, or New Orleans take him.
I'd love it if the Rams took him but I think a good fit for him would be with the Redskins
Stating the obvious, the Senior Bowl and combine will have everything to do with where he goes. Right now I'd say 4th round at best because no one really knows if he has the hands and route running ability required in the NFL. He'd be pretty dynamic after the catch and as a returner imo.
Anyone see he measured in at 5'10", 196lbs?
It's been my dream for years that Denard would get drafted by the Patriots. Give Belichick a versatile, explosive playmaker like that and gg league
Why would the lions draft him when we have Stafford, and his elbow might be an issue in the future pertaining towards the QB position?
He's definitely not going to play QB in the NFL. Well, maybe he would if Al Davis was still alive.
He'll never be more than an emergency QB in the NFL. His future is at WR/RB.
This. Thats one piece to their offense they are missing. an EXPLOSIVE playmaker.
But i also like the idea of the Lions drafting him because i would be able to see him every week on my team. Just fill the other needs first: OT, CB, LB, DENARD, S, DE. id be ok with that. he'd be a steal in the 4th IMO.
Maybe Redskins or Colts...get RGIII or Luck another playmaker around them.
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
I'd love for the Bills to draft him, another explosive playmaker to pair with CJ Spiller.
I think the best fit for Denard would be with the 49ers. They've shown a willingness to mix things up, so I could see them running a few offensive formations with Kaepernick, LaMichael James, Denard, Crabtree, and Vernon Davis/Manningham out there. They'll also have a late-round pick in each of the rounds where they aren't picking somebody expected to come in and be a starter. Give him decent weather, a head coach with UM ties, and a bunch of players who can fit spread formations and I think it's a nice fit.
Honestly have no idea how Denard will work out in the NFL. He has the raw skills, but he will definitely have to make a big transition in his skillset. Don't love the idea of the Lions' coaches and management dealing with him on a weekly basis, but would love the opportunity to cheer for him for at least a few more years.
Also, some video of Denard doing wr drills at the senior bowl
Denard Robinson begins his pursuit to become an NFL receiver while at Senior Bowl practice on Jan. 22. He also fielded punts.

From an Eagle guy down at the Senior Bowl.
* Denard Robinson played WR. He was okay. He caught the ball with his hands and out away from his body. He used a great double move to get open for a deep ball. I need to study the practice video to see just how good his route-running was. He might not be a natural WR, but he’s embraced the role and worked hard to impress. He’s also 196 pounds. That’s enough bulk to take hits, but won’t hurt his speed.
Also a tidbit for you Lion fans.
I was not impressed with the Lions DL coach at all. He yelled a lot. F-bombs all over the place. That stuff is fine with me, but he didn’t connect with the players at all. He kept yelling at the players, but wouldn’t call them by name or school. He just seemed to assume that the player would know he was talking to them. I hope the coach does a better job tomorrow. Also bugged me that most of his coaching advice was to be faster, quicker, or go harder. God forbid you actually explain something that is specifically wrong. He did that at times, but not enough for my taste.

Yeah heard he was so-so at returning. Didn't really do too much in team drills.
He did 1-on-1's but they weren't allowed to press cover him. He's supposed to have another observation today or tomorrow and see if he can be fully cleared to participate.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
