Denard Robinson earning praise in OTA practices

Because I'll never get tired of reading about Denard Robinson. Ever. 

He's bulked about about 15 pounds and appears to still have his same game breaking speed, but more importantly he's shown reliable hands thus far in OTA practices, not dropping a single pass.

The Jags had no idea what to do with him, and basically asked him to do everything. Not surprisingly, he struggled. I think letting him focus on one position and actually have some focus on what skills to develop will be huge.

If Denard can develop solid hands (like it sounds he has) and route running ability, he could be a serious weapon.  Maybe not a Pro Bowler, but anything from Dexter McCluster to Percy Harvin is possible.  He has a similar skill set to those guys.

In a recent SI piece, I think the projection for the Jaguars at RB basically was something to the effect of  Robinson as the #2 to Gebhart on the depth chart with Storm Johnson and Jordan Todman below him. That came out a little before OTAs, I believe, but it would be cool to see Denard make some serious strides as an RB and get in on perhaps 20% or more of the plays. Hopefully, it pans out like that.
