Denard Robinson is an interesting story. This man has struck attention from every corner. Have you ever heard of a college football player playing without their shoes tied? If you have then you must of heard of this guy. Robinson has been playing with unlaced cleats since he was 10 years old. He still maintains explosive speed, running a 4.32 Forty dash. Sport Science has shown that since Robinson does not rely on laced up shoes for stability he has built up greater interior foot strength which helps him stop and cut with the ball. He was drafted as a Running back for the Jacksonville Jaguars but, reports say he is getting a shot at QB during preseason training sessions. Who knows maybe by September he will impress Gus Bradley enough to beat out Henne and Gabbert. Below is a highlight reel of Robinson in action for Michigan. Enjoy!
