02:38 PM ET 05.08 | The Jacksonville Jaguars added a "slash" type player to their offense in fifth-round pick Denard Robinson in the 2013 NFL Draft. Robinson was an explosive playmaker with the ball in his hands, especially rushing the football, for Michigan in college and the Jaguars want to add that element to their offense. The Jaguars drafted Denard Robinson in the fifth-round of the 2013 NFL Draft to play running back, but he's going to have to do some things to get suited for the position. Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell noted on SiriusXM on Tuesday evening that the team would like to get Robinson "10-15 snaps" per game, including returning kicks and playing some wide receiver, as well as rushing the football.

Solid College Player... Wish him the best.
