06:01 PM ET 05.04 | Jacksonville Jaguars fifth-round pick Denard Robinson is ready to embrace a similar role as Kordell Stewart, formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers. "Come on. I watched it," Robinson joked with reporters on Friday when asked if he was old enough to remember Stewart. "He said 'he's a Slash'. He said he can put me at anywhere. Yeah." Robinson doesn't seem to have any issue at all with not pursuing the quarterback position at the NFL level and just wants to get on the football field. "Wherever they want to put me at I am open to doing it and I???m ready to have fun, doing special teams or whatever it takes," Robinson replied when asked where he wanted to play.

I'd guess he's a multi-slot player.

M.Sanu threw a TD too AJ Green in the Redskins game on the 1st set of downs,[too bad Sanu got hurt cuz he was an important part of the playbook and 2nd WR next too AJ green.

It seems alot of these kids excell in multi roles these days.

If you ignore the hype at the time, Kordell was a jack of all trades, but a master of none.It seems like guys who don't have a set position are used more for the gimmick. When teams learn that, they aren't as effective.
