Denard Robinson drafted as a WR and could run Read Option

Recommended Posts

Ok, I know many of you are laughing at me right now, and wondering how am I posting so many thoughts tonight. Just on a roll when i start digging into the draft I guess. Well here is a thought. I believe the Pistol, and/or Read Option will get figured out as all new offenses due, but there is a place for it, since it does make it tougher on defenses due to having to account for the quarterback. Now I would not want to run it as a team full time because my franchise QB would only be a QB for a limited number of years. But in limited does, it makes sense.

 

So here is my thought. Someone is going to take Denard Robinson due to his athletic skills and try to make him a receiver. He won't be a high draft pick, so not a lot of risk, and you could have packages where he runs QB and the read option or the pistol to change it up as a package. I think it is intriguing. The only thing is, if you have a franchise QB, you don't want to take him off the field. Well with Denard as a WR, you would not have to. I don't want Luck lining up as a receiver, but I believe someone is going to think about this the same way I am right now. If nothing else, the read option is going to cause a bit of a change, although it won't change what teams ideally want. As I said though, as a package, it would give other teams something to think about, and you know Denard can run. Silly thought, who knows?

Ill pass, we can get better value in the late rounds then then a guy that does not have a clear position in the NFL at least yet, it certainly is not QB and probably not at wr

He'd be a great pickup for Washington honestly. Having him and RG3 on the field at the same time would give defenses head aches. Sort of like a modified wildcat formation.

 

But for us? No. We don't run gimmick offenses.

I love Denard.

He doesn't fit us at all. We have enough guys like him (TY, Palmer, maybe Avery) and our WCO requires good hands and route running, something I doubt Denard can do.

I agree Washington would be scary with him. Maybe Chip Kelly's Eagles could use him?

Pittsburgh and Antwaan Randle El comes to mind with Robinson.... I think Robinson is even flashier.

 

I agree.....not for us, but he will end up a fan favorite somewhere....just think if he turns into a little slot receiver....Denard Welker?  Naaaa....I will stay with Randle El... rotflmao

Agreed

 

Although he could have a great career he doesn't fit here with the Colts

    • All I have to say is I hope the Raiders lose horrendously and Marshawn Lynche retires.
    • If we win out I think we make the playoffs. We can hand Balt and Buf losses and take the last playoff spot from them. This is all whimsical though.
    • The AFC is looking quite weak in general. I see the Pats and Steelers as the only serious contenders. JAX picked a good year to get serious. With some luck they could hit the AFC conference championship game. So yeah we could win out. The conference is in flux. I can't wait till Brady and Big Ben retire. There's a solid chance the AFC south sends two teams to playoffs next year.    
    • You have to admit Eli beating the Pats twice in the SB is priceless, once when they were 18-0 looking for perfection. Peyton 3-1 vs Brady too in Title Games, man those Manning's saved us from watching the Pats winning 10 SB's possibly. I am just glad Peyton went out on top and got that 2nd Ring as a starter. Getting Ring #2 validates that he is a great winner because only 11 other QB's have won 2 or more SB's as a starter. Anyone can win 1 but getting #2 proves a lot winning wise. Yeah Eli has won 2 as well but Peyton has 5 League MVP's to his 0. So I would take Peyton's career easily over Eli's now because of the 2nd Ring + the League MVP's. I am hoping Ben Roethlisberger doesn't win his 3rd because he isn't near the QB Peyton was, that would be sad if he had more SB wins. Ben is like Eli though = 0 League MVP's.    -Only Tom Brady (5), Joe Montana (4), Terry Bradshaw (4), and Troy Aikman (3) have won more SB's than Peyton as a starter. So even if someone wanted to go by just SB Rings, Peyton is still a Top 5 QB of all-time because League MVP's is the tiebreaker amongst the 2 Time winners. League MVP is easily the 2nd best thing to win only behind the SB. Winning League MVP means you were voted as the best player or most valuable by the media in the whole league. I just love how Peyton haters are so butt hurt the way he got #2 because Denver's D carried him in the SB . Peyton still earned #2 though because he played well vs the Pats. Brock would've never beat the Pats on that type of stage. Too much pressure and BB didn't fear him at all. Brock played well in that Reg Season and beat the Pats actually in the Reg Season but in a Title Game it would've never happened.
    • Different animal = great Playoff record. Flacco has always been solid in the Playoffs. He has also beat the Pats twice in 2009 and 2012, should've beat them in 2011 but his WR dropped a TD late in that Title Game.
