Allen Robinson 31 on NFL Top 100
Rounding out the 5 Jaguars on the NFL Top 100, Allen Robinson receives some pretty high praise as the 31st best player in football.
The Jacksonville Jaguars usually don’t have a lot of representatives on the NFL Top 100 list – Sen’Derrick Marks was the lone Jaguar on the list in 2015 – but this year is different. After several players made massive steps forward, the team ended up with 5 players on the list. The top guy? Allen Robinson at 31.

While there has been plenty of discussion about the validity of some other Jaguars making the list (Blake Bortles
), nobody is going to argue that Robinson shouldn’t be on here. Some will take offense to Robinson being ranked higher thanDez Bryant
, but Robinson objectively had a better season in 2016. In his sophomore campaign, Robinson caught 80 passes for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns. Robinson’s 17.5 yard per reception average was by far the most in 2015 by any player with more than 60 catches.
The highlight plays came early and often in 2015 for Robinson, as he quickly became a surefire bet to come down with those “50/50” balls down the field. Bortles has shown a propensity to push the ball deep in his first two years and Robinson has shown himself to be a perfect complement to the young QB’s aggressive play style. Even when he doesn’t appear to be open, Robinson can high-point the ball and make defensive backs look absolutely silly.
Criticism of this list is definitely warranted, but this ranking is spot on for Robinson. He was the best player on the Jaguars in 2015 and the most consistent in terms of producing big plays on a weekly basis. He can still improve some in his route running but Robinson appears to have all the tools necessary to be one of the best receivers in the league over the next decade or so.
