Even PITT's Josh Lay scored better with 13.

First off, Robinson right now projects as a RB more than anything else. In fact, I've heard some reports - particularly some of the discussion on NFL Network during the combine - that Robinson's got more of a chance of being a QB in the NFL than he does a WR. So let's recap...we've got a guy who was a QB and WR in college, but scouts are saying his best chance at a future in the NFL is at a position he never played in college. That doesn't sound like a guy who I want to spend a draft pick on to play WR.
A few things some of these dolts need to remember...
1) Just because someone played both WR and QB in college doesn't mean they can do it in the pros.
2) Randle-El was drafted exclusively as a wide receiver and the gadget role evolved from there. The team DID NOT draft him with the trick play role in mind - at least, it wasn't any of the primary reasons they drafted him.
3) If you're in the business of spending a draft pick on a player to specifically fill a gadget play role, do me a favor and join my fantasy football league.
4) I'll indulge these people for a minute. Look at Robinson's body type and his mobility and then project that into the slot-receiver role that Randle-El played. The one thing that made Randle-El a solid slot receiver was his quickness and agility. That kind of quickness and agility exists in people who are 5'7", 170 like Randle-El was. It's not the same kind of quickness that a guy who goes 6'1", 225 has.
In other words, Robinson would get lit up like friggin' Christmas tree. That would be like asking Warrick Dunn to come to Pittsburgh to take over Jerome Bettis's role.

On NFL Network Mayock said Zamaitis ran over a 4.6 on a fast indoor track @ PSU's pro day. He probably ran himself out of the first day. He did say they have some walk on receiver that ran very fast and is a special teams demon and may be drafted. Hali solidified his first round status. Most of the other guys ran slowly, didn't do enough 225 reps, and jumped poorly. Robinson said he wants to play QB, but he didn't throw well in his workout.
