Robinson, Weatherspoon boost draft stock at Senior Bowl
By ESPN.com staff
Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson needed a big week at the Senior Bowl to help his chances in the upcoming NFL draft.
Robinson got that and more in strong play for the South team at Saturday's game at Mobile, Ala.
His efforts in practices during the week enabled him to get most of the playing time for the South team in its 31-13 loss to the North.
The South team struggled, but it wasn't necessarily Robinson's fault. He completed 12 of 21 passes for a game-high 176 yards as he outplayed fellow South quarterbacks Tim Tebow of Florida and Jarrett Brown of West Virginia. Robinson hooked up with Colin Peak on a 19-yard touchdown pass shortly before halftime to account for the South team's only touchdown.
Robinson, like Tebow, had two fumbles including one lost. And Robinson had minus-9 yards in four carries including two sacks.
Here's a look at the individual statistics and participation for the Big 12 alumni in the game.
