Default Illinois State WR Laurent Robinson visits Steelers

Illinois State WR Laurent Robinson visits Steelers

By Tribune-Revew
Thursday, April 5, 2007

Illinois State wide receiver Laurent Robinson, who improved his draft stock with an impressive performance at the NFL Scouting Combine, visited the Steelers South Side facility Thursday.

Robinson (6-2, 199) ran the 40 in 4.38 seconds at the Combine and had a 39-inch vertical jump.

He caught 86 passes for 1,465 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2005, but was limited to 40 catches for 718 yards with seven TDs last season after missing four games with an ankle injury.

thats one hell of a 2005 season. it seems the steelers are set on taking a wr. theyre definitely doing alot of studying on them. i'd be worried if they were bringing in 1st round graded talent though. usc steve smith is due for a visit as is lane college jacoby jones.

Sounds good but I dont see the Steelers taking a WR in the first round 2 years in a row.

I also don't think that we really need another WR just yet. WE might mtake one in the later rounds but right now I think there are other positions we need to address.

Those who have read some of my posts know that Laurent Robinson played here in the city I live in...and that I think he is the real thing....

That being said...he is NOT a first round pick...most sites have him going in the late third to the early fourth round ....and he would be a STEAL if we got him with one of our fourth round picks...

dude get real,they already have several good recievers,did you forget about nate,and santonio?they need to get pressure on the quarterback,and in order to do that they must have the coverage downfield.if you think they need a wide reciever,you are kind of like lost.a better punting game would not hurt too much either.love your thoughts but get on the page.

Actually...the Steelers do not have a legitimate 3rd reciever...Hines and Santonio will be your 1 & 2...but Wilson and Washington are neither more than #4 recievers....so yes..we need a reciever....and will probably either draft one or pick one up in FA.
We have 9 picks so there seems to be room for a CB, .A DE, a PUnter...AND a WR.

dude get real - everyone here is entitled to their own thoughts and opinions. There is a way of posting respectfully when disagreeing with someone else's thought process - please get on the page and learn how to do it, k?
