Jaguars depth chart: Denard Robinson moves up to No. 2 RB

It's likely fans will see more of Denard Robinson going forward, as he's been promoted to be the No. 2 running back on the Jaguars depth chart.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be making a few changes coming off the bye week, in regards to spots on the depth chart, etc. One of the moves the team has already made is promoting rookie Denard Robinson to the backup running back position.

Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley noted in his Monday press conference that Robinson had been bumped up to the primary running back position, citing the team liked what they saw out of him against the San Francisco 49ers and that they're very intrigued by what he can do at the position.

Robinson had just four carriers for 15 yards in the last game, but he also had a 30+ yard run called back for holding, showcasing some of his big play potential. Despite playing quarterback for much of his college career, Robinson always displayed good vision running with the football, and ran more like a running back than a quarterback. He was patient behind blockers and knew when to "get small" and cut through the line.

While many teams viewed Robinson as a wide receiver convert, the Jaguars clearly think he fits more as a running back and we should be seeing more of him in the second half of the season.
