Watching how creatively Jabrill Peppers (and hell, even Morris) has been utilized, I can't help but wonder what Harbaugh would have done with Denard.
Would Robinson have been a full-time qb? Would he have been a WR used in wildcat packages and end arounds? Would he have returned kicks?
As founder, chairman, AND president of the "One More Year Jabrill" foundation, I am disconcerted at NFL projections already making the way around The Internets.
I am further disheartened by the projections of WHERE he might go.
I wish to start a GoFundMe account to keep him in school and avoid being selected here...
Yes, I know...mock drafts be damned.
Jabrill Peppers, SS, Michigan: Entering a contract year, Johnathan Cyprien has yet to cement himself as a starting-caliber safety. An above average athlete, Peppers can do just about everything on the football field.
At least one person will be happy about this should it come to fruitiion.
p.s. Jabrill should be #1. Obviously.
Usually as a pre-season ritural, I go back into the mgoblog archives and find some of my favorite articles. I re-read the "best and worst of the decade' article from 2010 recently, and I was wondering, which plays from 2010-2015 will probably show up on a "best of" and "worst of" list come 2020?
"Best of" -- I'm thinking...
Denard's 90-yarder against Notre Dame
Denard completing a long pass to Junior Hemmingway with a guy draped around his leg.
Jeremy Gallon cloaking device
Jehu Chesson goes bowling for Domers
Jehu Chesson sets the Florida DB's pants on fire
Deveon Smith teleporting through the pile of bodies to run for a TD against BYU
Stuffing Minnesota on the 1-yard line at the end of the 2015 game.
Hopefully, many more to come in the next four years. Denard deserves so much more but you can only have so many 50+ yard runs on the list.
"Worst of", unfortunately, has a lot of candidates...
That horrible pass play against PSU in 2010 where J.T. Floyd gets completely turned around
Gardner's pick six against ND
Gardner's pick six against Akron
Gardner's QB sneak fumble against UConn
The 10-man punt TD against Utah
2015 MSU -- duh
The failed 2-point conversion against OSU
Vincent Smith's pass getting intercepted by ND
The failed 4th down conversion against MSU in the trash tornado game.
The South Carolina QB spinning out of a Jibreel Black sack attempt that would have put South Carolina into third and very long.
What else could be on the list when all is said and done?
I don’t know if this is worth tread for here. But there something that I noticed and it drive me nuts. I brought Michigan calendar 2015. On May it Denard Robinson who is our Quarterback for Michigan. BUT!!!! On the calendar they print as Running Back! It one of my biggest pet peeves that some people said that he is running back not quarterbacks. But I disagree with that. How do you judge on this?
Yes he is the second highest on the list for most yards in their career for Michigan. Does not mean he is a running back right?
Top 20 career

Denard Robinson is now up to 552 yards on 125 carries for the season, 4.4 yard average. Great to see him having some success and hope he continues to improve and build on what he is doing this season.
As far as running backs picked ahead of him in 2013...
Giovani Bernard - 540 yards, 4.0 avg
Le'Veon Bell - 1,046 yards, 4.8 avg
Montee Ball - 172 yards, 3.1 avg
Eddie Lacy - 770 yards, 4.4 avg
Christine Micheal - 112 yards, 6.2 avg
Knile Davis - 423, 3.7 avg
Jacksonville got a steal in the 5th round. Way to go Denard! Keep smiling and thank you for 2011 so we at least can hold on to those recent memories.
