Denard Robinson's NFL future rides on his ability to adapt to a new position
 
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Denard Robinson picked up speed, faked left, cut right, then burst between two defenders and into the clear. He was gone. His left shoe, however, was not.

Back in college this was a cool thing: seeing the Michigan quarterback known as "Shoelace," famous for not tying his shoes, fly down the field in a sock after running out of a cleat. But here in the NFL? Not so much.
One of the position coaches for his new team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, instructed Robinson to lace 'em up, which he immediately did, without a word of protest. Robinson knows things are different now that he's in the NFL; he understands that if he's going to make it here, he has to adapt. If that means lacing up his shoes, so be it.

Extraordinary athlete, no doubt he can play at the NFL level ... just not at QB.

Hmmm, I say the jury is still out on whether or not Denard can play at the NFL level ... even at the slot/WR position. Time will tell.

... I was thinking he'd be a good special-teamer kind of player. He's on Jacksonville though, so he'll get some opportunities there he wouldn't get on a stronger team ... heck, who's their backup QB?

I think he can be effective in a couple of years but it takes that the team gives him time to develop.
