Robinson – the answer to KC's return woes?

After trading Dante Hall last offseason, the Chiefs' return game suffered. Experiments with Jeff Webb, Samie Parker, Eddie Drummond, and Eddie Kennison failed to fill the void, but the Chiefs think they have found the answer with the selection of Kevin Robinson from Utah State.

Robinson is as proven a return man to come out of the college ranks as there has ever been. He is the all-time leader in yards-per-touch in NCAA history (16.16).

Robinson owns so many records he should have his own book. His 1,260 kickoff return yards in 2007 set an NCAA single-season record, and his 3,829 career kickoff return yards also set an NCAA record. He is tied for the college football record for career return touchdowns with eight, and holds school records for receptions, punt return yards, all-purpose yardage, kickoff returns, and return touchdowns. Because Utah State switched conferences in 2004, Robinson holds records in both the Sun Belt Conference and the WAC.

Robinson is only the 11th player in NCAA history to gain over 1,000 yards on both punt and kickoff returns, and is one of just two athletes to amass over 2,000 yards receiving, 2,000 yards on kickoff returns, and 1,000 yards on punt returns. He was a first-team All-American selection as a returner last year.

Don't sleep on Robinson's offensive accomplishments, either. At Utah State he was known as a solid possession receiver, racking up 21 receiving touchdowns and 2,485 yards.
