Instant Analysis: Utah WR Kevin Robinson
One of the best kick and punt-return guys in the country. Enormously talented guy who sees the crack, he's very instinctive. He's not been good at it, he's been outstanding at it. The big problem is he doesn't have great speed. He has to make the team as a returner first and foremost. I think what he does is he replaces Dante Hall, but he's a guy that can do those kinds of things.
Instant Analysis: Nick Athan
Robinson is also strong, and that could be something that helps develop his return abilities in the NFL. The one thing that stands out with Robinson that he rarely backpedals. He's always moving forward and when he gets a seam he knows how to hit the hole. He can break tackles and has outstanding lateral movement. He can also catch the ball and might be an option as KC's fourth or fifth wide receiver.
Has been an outstanding return man throughout his collegiate career. Is a playmaker who can make things happen after the catch, but lacks the speed and surprisingly neither a polished route runner and or catcher. I felt he got in and out of a route effectively, with adequate tracking skills. On deep routes, lacks the burst at the top of the route (didn't separate vertically). Has a chance basically on the strength of his returns.
