Maybe my favorite receiver from this year’s draft class. Wan’Dale Robinson is a natural slot receiver, a gadget type of a player, who can be very productive in today’s NFL.

After one year at Kentucky, Robinson produced one of the most productive seasons from a receiver in school history.

Robinson is the definition of quick. One plant of a foot and he is gone. He’s also tough as nails, something that Carolina Panthers fans usually like in their shorter receivers.

Robinson has the perfect makeup to be a modern-day slot receiver. If he can polish his route running, the prospect can make a lot of money in this league.

Early on Robinson will likely be used more as a jack of all trades offensive weapon. Someone you can give the ball to on quick screens and jet sweeps and let him go to work. His run after the catch ability is very impressive thanks to a supreme ability to run away and through defenders.

He should be working on his kick/punt return ability on a regular basis, that’s where I truly see him making an impact.

Robinson projects to be a third to early fourth-round pick, so Carolina would be very lucky to be able to select him with the No. 137 overall selection in the draft. If that were to happen, I think the Panthers would be getting a guy who could actually come in and contribute early on.
