OSU's Robinson set to compete in the Senior Bowl
By David Ubben
Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson will have a chance to show his talents at next week's Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.
Robinson, Florida's Tim Tebow and West Virginia's Jarrett Brown all will have the opportunity to play in the game, which will be played Jan. 30 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.
Obviously, much of the attention for fans in the Mobile area will be riveted on Tebow. That scenario might be the best opportunity for Robinson, who struggled with injuries during his senior season with the Cowboys.
Despite those injuries, Robinson was a finalist for the Manning Award and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award this season in addition to being named honorable mention All-Big 12. He leaves Oklahoma State with numerous records under his belt, including total offense (10,175), passing yards (8,317), touchdown passes (66) and completion percentage (61.2).
Robinson's multi-purpose talents are expected to be his strongest attribute when working before the NFL scouts during the week leading up to the game.
It's his chance to shine. In order to better his draft status, he needs a big week.
