I want to stay away from this guy.

Chris Johnson doesn't belong on a list with Irvin, Moss and Fitzgerald.

But to your point, Irvin and Moss wouldn't throw bitch fits on the sidelines when they weren't getting the ball. Most importantly however, none of those guys had red flags about his commitment and attitude on the field.

Do you really want a guy that is going to have a bad attitude playing second fiddle to AB on this offense? Not to mention he's not even the top receiver in the class and is arguably behind Kelvin Benjamin as well to round him out as the third best receiver. I'd prefer Sammy Watkins - a guy that draws attention to himself by his play on the field, not by the penalties and attitude he has.

In 2013, Robinson recorded 97 receptions for 1,432 yards and six touchdowns. The junior demonstrated nice quickness to get separation and run-after-the catch ability. He had many prolific games, including contests against Ohio State (12-173), Illinois (11-165) and Indiana (12-173). Robinson could be on the bubble between the first and second day of the 2014 NFL Draft. How well he runs at the Combine and his pro day will have a big impact on his draft stock.

The 6-foot-3, 204-pound Robinson was one of the bright spots of the 2012 season for Penn State. He excelled in the Nittany Lions' new pro-style offense. Robinson hauled in 77 passes for 1,018 yards and 11 touchdowns after barely playing in 2011.

http://walterfootball.com/draft2014charlie_2.php
Robinson played in a pro-style offense at Penn St. He's got great size. He has tremendous ball skills, making great adjustments with the ball in the air. He catches the ball with his hands, and has very good body control making catches near the side lines or end zone. He is very good after the catch, and is used in WR screens because of that skill. He has a smooth, effortless style that makes everything he does appear to be easy.

He needs to improve his route running a bit. He needs to tighten his routes, and explode out of his breaks a little more.

If he runs well at the combine, he could be a first rounder. If not, he drops. Either way, he's a fantastic receiver that should be ready to play pretty quickly. I think he could be great.

Id rather have watkins too, but I dont think he would last that long. he has close to Mike Wallace buster potential which comes in handy when we run those damm bubbles plus he has above average body positioning skills to let him box guys out

Id definitely take Watkins over Evans.....but Evans is a playmaker himself...I love his game too, But I didn't know all that stuff about his attitude so yeah that would be a potential problem I hope the scouts look into

Good god, are any of you watching the Orange Bowl? Watkins is playing injured and at this moment has 7 catches for 120 yards and a TD. There's 6:16 left in the second Quarter. Give Roethlisberger this kid, please.

Unfortunately you're probably correct, but man this kid is talented. Unfortunately, the Clemson secondary isn't.

Need or not, if he's there at 15, he's an automatic pick.

But, he'll be long gone by 15.
