Around this time last year, New Orleans Saints running back Khiry Robinson didn't strike fear in opponents. Nor did he inspire much interest among pundits analyzing the team's 2013 outlook.

The undrafted rookie out of West Texas A&M didn't even have the correct label next to his name. In the first offseason rosters handed out by the team, he was listed as a wide receiver.

Robinson was another name in a sea of hopefuls who desired to make an impression on Saints coaches during a three-day minicamp.

Most did not.

Out of the 30 players who showed up to camp on a tryout basis that weekend, Robinson was the only one to stay there through OTAs, mandatory minicamp, training camp and finally the cutdown to the 53-man roster.

Robinson said he felt like he was a freshman in high school or college all over again at the start of that first minicamp.

"It was a lot more being thrown at you than in college," Robinson said of last summer. "I've got to learn all these plays in three days, like at rookie camp. It's kind of all slowing down for me now, I'm getting the hang of it. It's a big difference than last year."

Now if he could just cut the his hair. I hate seeing a player stopped on a run because a LB grabs the long hair.

I'm a huge fan of this kid. I do believe that Flanders may make Cadet expendable. I have soured on Cadet lately. He seems to have hit a wall and was not progressing toward the end of last year.
