The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed yet another rookie -- this time it's second-round draft pick Allen Robinson, formerly of Penn State.

Allen Robinson, who excelled at rookie mini-camp, has officially signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

At 6'3, 220 pounds, Robinson offers ideal size and showed plenty of ability at Penn State, where he was a consensus All-American last season. He also flashed incredible athleticism at Penn State's Pro Day, posting a 42-inch vertical jump.

But he was underwhelming at the NFL Combine though, posting just a 4.57 40-yard dash, which he improved by a tenth of a second at his pro day. Regardless, he should be an immediate starter in the Jacksonville offense.

Robinson was the second of two wide receivers the Jaguars picked in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. The team coveted Robinson too, as they moved up from the No. 70 overall selection after a trade with the San Francisco 49ers that moved them back into the second round, giving up pick No. 150 to move up.

Even with the addition of fellow second-round pick Marqise Lee, the Jaguars' receivers lacked height, as Tandon Doss and Stephen Williams are the only receivers currently under contract with the Jaguars that are listed as taller than 6'0. Robinson will certainly bring physicality and athleticism to the new-look Jaguars receiving corps.
