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.
