Jaguars plan to get Denard Robinson 10-15 touches per game


Jacksonville needs playmaking ability anyway they can get it, making Robinson an intriguing target.

The Jacksonville Jaguars took a gamble in the 2013 NFL Draft, selecting Michigan Wolverines standout Denard Robinson in the fifth round.

After being a quarterback for most of his college career, Robinson is now being asked to line up in a variety of positions, including running back and wide receiver. The Jaguars want him getting somewhere from 10-15 touches per game on offense, in addition to the return game, according to Alex Marvez.

Robinson has been up front since the end of his college days, saying he's willing to play anywhere on the field to make his NFL dream a reality.

With the dearth of talent on Jacksonville's roster, it seems the perfect spot for Robinson to succeed. He should certainly get his touches on offense, especially with Justin Blackmon being out the first four games due to violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Jacksonville's first regular season game is September 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
