Allen Robinson continues to entice the media with his potential as a Jacksonville Jaguars receiver this season.

Allen Robinson is the Key to the Jaguars Offense – SB Nation

"His catches — like this and this — have popped up on Twitter and helped to boost the offseason hype around the uber-athletic Penn State product. It doesn’t hurt that ESPN beat reporter Mike DiRocco noted recently that it’s “evident [Robinson] is the Jaguars’ best receiver,” adding that “though the media was not allowed to report specifics about what we saw in OTAs, Robinson had numerous ‘wow’ catches and was the most impressive offensive player on the field.”"

"The Jaguars hoped Dante Fowler Jr. would help change that. They took the former University of Florida standout with the third overall pick in the draft on April 30 but lost him for the season with a torn left ACL less than an hour into his first rookie minicamp practice.Is the Jaguars’ streak of consecutive seasons without a player recording double-digit sacks likely to reach nine years? Now that Fowler is out, the top three options to snap it are Branch, Chris Clemons and Ryan Davis."

"Coaches, players and general management of the Jacksonville Jaguars have all been singing praises about second-year wide receiver Allen Robinson throughout the entire offseason. Robinson played only 10 games last year as rookie, but was still able to haul in 48 balls for 548 yards and two touchdowns. He was on pace for much more than that, but the Penn State product went down with a stress fracture in his foot, causing him to miss the final six games of the season.An eye-popping statistic for the Jags: the team has not had a wide receiver record a 1,000-yard season since Jimmy Smith in 2005 – a span that has seen every other team accomplish that feat besides the lowly Oakland Raiders. In addition, there have only been two Jaguars to ever do so: Smith nine times and Keenan McCardell three times."
