Robinson finished his career with 4,495 rushing yards, an NCAA record for quarterbacks.

Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage says he is ``comparable to Antwaan Randle El'' in athleticism, ball skills and speed. Randle El was an Indiana quarterback who went on to play receiver with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins.

Robinson was a three-year starter at quarterback but injured his right elbow late in the season.

He lined up mostly at running back in the Outback Bowl against South Carolina and rushed for 100 yards on 23 carries

Now, Robinson will get a week to show NFL teams how he might fare in the transition to receiver leading up to the Jan. 26 game.
