In a surprising move by Mel Tucker and company, Brian Robiskie is listed as the #1 WR on the depth chart. This come after the WR shakeup this week with the release of the WR position coach and former #1 WR Jason Hill. Brian has been bothered with a hamstring injury the past few weeks and has only seen very limited action. These next five games he has the opportunity to solidify a roster spot for next season and resurrect his career.
I personally like Robiskie's size and speed for a #1 WR. The big knock on him is his strength to beat press coverage off the line. His route running and hands are very good. It's great to see the Jags looking more to Robiskie, Chastin West, Jarret Dillard, and Cecil Shorts III to see just how many WR's we are going to need to acquire through the draft and free agency in 2012. We know we need at least one starter. If none of these guys step up, we will likely go after a big name free agent WR and use a 1st or 2nd round pick on one in the draft.
