Denard Robinson

Sounds like his transition to RB is not going well but it's still early in training camp. I'm a big Michigan Wolverines fan but I didn't target him in any of my 8 dynasty league rookie drafts.

Jaguars stress ball security for Denard Robinson

Jacksonville Jaguars


Jacksonville Jaguars fifth-round pick Denard Robinson is a player that fans have high hopes for, because of his big play ability, but he's got to hold on to the football better than he has so far through the first three days of camp. Robinson has struggled catching the football, as he's learning the position, and has fumbled the ball a few teams.

"Well it’s addressed, if not, almost every day. It’s more shown. We have a photographer out here who takes pictures, snapshots of them holding the ball and it’s shown in team meetings just to show them if there’s any air," Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said after practice when asked if he was concern about Robinson's ball security. "So he has to have that mindset because his teammates need to trust him. It’s hard to get on the field if you can’t protect the ball when one of our major deals of this organization is it’s all about the ball."

Robinson recognizes this is an issue however, and is working to correcting it. Robinson has been seen on the field before and after practice working on catching and securing the football. It may not ever be a skill that comes naturally to him, but he can certainly improve his concentration and making sure he secures the catch before he runs.

"He’s made leaps and bounds from where he was; again it’s the consistency with him," Bradley added.

Fun quotient up for team’s offense

If Wednesday’s practice is any indication, the Jaguars will be a fun team to watch on offense.

Denard Robinson ran five Wildcat plays, wide receiver Mike Brown took a lateral from Kafka and overthrew Jordan Todman and Cecil Shorts ran an end-around although he bobbled the ball on a pitch from Henne, who also pitched to Maurice Jones-Drew on an option play. Henne is spread out on the Wildcat plays, but they haven’t thrown it to him yet.

Both Robinson and Brown were college quarterbacks.

It remains to be seen how many of these plays the Jaguars will actually run in games, but Robinson seems to be getting more comfortable in the Wildcat. He handed off three times and carried twice, but didn’t throw the ball.

His big issue if he’s to play much is ball security. “If we can’t have ball security and feel confident in that, then you may not see it,’’ Bradley said.

Robinson also worked as a punt protector, which was Tim Tebow’s job with the New York Jets last year. Robinson may turn out to be a faster version of Tebow.
