The Detroit Lions were among the first teams to meet with Denard Robinson after he finished his Michigan career.
And now, they will work him out just days before the NFL draft, which begins next Thursday.
"We’ve been tracking him and tracking his development over the offseason, since going back to the Senior Bowl in January," Lions general manager Martin Mayhew told reporters Thursday. "He’s still working hard, he’s improving. He’s doing a better job now catching punts.
"We’re going to go work out with him coming up, so he’s moving along in the right direction, as far as developing his skills to be a returner. He’s also got some ability to play running back. We went back and watched him play running back those last few games -- he’s sort of got a lot of those slash qualities as possibly a slot receiver and a halfback."
Robinson began his transition to the NFL by trying to become a receiver, and played there during the Senior Bowl in January and combine in February. But interest for him at tailback has picked up in recent weeks.
The former Michigan star, who set the FBS record for rushing yards by a quarterback, worked out at tailback during his pro day in March.
The 5-foot-11, 199-pound prospect showed plenty of rushing ability during his college career, and actually played tailback in his final two games after an elbow injury prevented him from throwing the ball.
Robinson rushed 23 times for 100 yards in the season finale against South Carolina, becoming the only Michigan taillback to break into triple-digits all year. He finished with 4,495 rushing yards overall in his career.
It's unclear what position he'll play in the NFL, or where he'll be drafted. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. latest projections peg Robinson going to the Cincinnati Bengals in the third round.
