2014 NFL Draft: Allen Robinson and Carolina Panthers Are Perfect Fit
The Carolina Panthers need a receiver in the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft. No longer can the Panthers rely so heavily upon top option Steve Smith, instead, it’s time the team goes out and finds his eventual replacement. Allen Robinson, the receiver out of Penn State is exactly the guy the Panthers should be looking at in the draft.
Unlike Smith, Robinson has the size you would like to see in a top receiver, and at 6’3″ he will be able to win jump balls against most NFL corners. Not to mention, Robinson runs crisp routes and his hands are extremely reliable. While he might not be an ideal top option right out of the college ranks, there is no doubt that Robinson has number one receiver potential.
During the 2013-14 season, we saw what kind of player Cam Newton could be. The thing is, in order for Newton to truly ever reach his potential, he needs another good receiver to throw to; especially with Steve Smith now a year older and more than a few steps slower. It’s time the Panthers realize it; they need another receiver that can eventually take over for Smith.
Allen Robinson is that guy.
