Report: Steelers Met With Penn State WR Allen Robinson Friday Night At The Combine

The Pittsburgh Steelers are all prepared to let wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders leave via free agency in a few weeks and will likely draft a “tall” wide receiver early in the 2014 NFL Draft to fill his void. They’ve already reportedly talked to tall underclassmen wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Donte Moncrief while at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine this week and you can now add the name of Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson to that list.

According to Jim Wexell of Steel City Insider on Twitter, Robinson, who also declared for the draft as an underclassman following the 2013 season, met with the Steelers Friday night.

Robinson, who earned All-American honors and was named a Biletnikoff Award semifinalist after collecting 1,432 yards in 12 games last season, measured in at the combine at just over 6 foot two and a half and weighed 220 pounds. He has 32 inch arms to go along with 9 1/2 inch hands.

Robinson was the first player since at least 1985 to lead the Big Ten in both receptions and receiving yards in consecutive seasons.

    Not a fan

  • shawn

    likewise … see nothing special with this guy … Matthews is this year’s Keenan Allen … not saying we should pick him … just saying

  • Iron Cadet

    I’m a fan at 2:15

  • SteelersDepot

    Typo was above. Should have read six foot two

  • grw1960

    From what I read, So far the Steelers have not met with WR Mike Evens. I wonder if this is a case like last year??? They apparently didn’t interview OLB Jones at the combine. Because they thought he would be gone by their pick. I wonder if they think the same thing about Evens??

  • Ike Evans

    I’ll say it….I think We should draft Jordan Matthews if he’s there in the 2nd round

  • shawn

    well i did mock him for us on the 2nd and i do like him a lot … reminds me of Jordy Nelson … just saying I’m flexible … but I’m with u ( would be very fortunate if he landed to us there or maybe we make a manuever)

  • shawn

    I hope its a case they just aren’t interested … dont like his play at the next level

  • Iron Cadet

    they probably have, i mean we have heard like 7 names out of 60 meetings.

  • shawn

    definitely wouldn’t mind … had in my mock … only if we were that lucky

  • Iron Cadet

    No doubt

  • Matt Manzo

    I’m so grateful for the abundance of tall WRs this year! We have to take a CB in 1 or 2 and since we can wait til the 3rd to pluck from the bounty of WRs, we’re bound to get someone awesome!

  • grw1960

    After watching Evens on NFL live at the combine. The Steelers will be lucky if he falls to their pick at 15

  • shawn

    i hope he goes before so we have no chance to pick him … i know he had a good combine, but i just am not thrilled with his play on tape .. he might turn out to be a solid player but id be very comfortable in passing on him !
