Robinson showcases talent for NFL coaches
From Mirror reports
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and Eagles coach Chip Kelly were among the NFL personnel on hand for Penn State’s pro day Tuesday, and they witnessed a strong performance by Allen Robinson.
The receiver ran a 4.47 40-yard dash and had a 42-inch vertical leap, according to cbssports.com. Those numbers were substantially better than what he put up at the NFL combine (4.60 40-yard dash, 39-inch vertical leap).
Robinson has been projected anywhere from the first round to the third round in mock drafts.
Twenty-six NFL teams were represented at PSU’s pro day. Eleven former Nittany Lions took part in drills, including defensive tackle DaQuan Jones, linebacker Glenn Carson, tight end Garry Gilliam, offensive tackle Adam Gress and defensive back Stephen Obeng-Agyapong.
Robinson, Jones and guard John Urschel are projected to be picked in the NFL draft, while others are hopeful of hearing their name called.
Penn State junior offensive lineman Anthony Alosi has been charged with simple assault and harassment from an incident Jan. 31 in State College.
According to police reports, Alosi allegedly kicked a man in the head, and the man had to be hospitalized for injuries to his eye and face.
Alosi told police the man attacked him first. He faces a preliminary hearing April 23.
