Allen Robinson is primed for a 2015 breakout

New, comments

Allen Robinson flashed his polished, reliable game during his impressive rookie season. Can he play "angrier" in his second year?

During OTAs this offseason, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley publicly revealed his desire for second-year WR Allen Robinson to play "angry."

Robinson was one of the OTA standouts, bouncing back from the stress fracture injury in his foot with noticeable renewed athleticism and a handful of eye-popping catches. This season, Robinson holds an opportunity to build on his impressive rookie campaign by applying his prior experience and combining that with the "anger" Bradley is trying to instill in his young offense. If Robinson can play angrier, he’ll contend for more 50-50 balls and look to become a factor in the redzone.

If last season is any indication, Robinson will have little difficulty taking that next step.

In a young, rookie-saturated offense, Robinson appeared to be the most polished WR on the roster. A-Rob has every one of the tools required to stretch the field. Still, Robinson most often became the recipient of Bortles’ one-read dumps last season as the offense carefully moved the ball against the opposition. This year, in a new offense surrounded by new weapons, Robinson has a chance to build on his established chemistry with Blake Bortles and become a multipurpose focus in the Jaguars offense.

SB Nation's Danny Kelly recently wrote about A-Rob's potential role in 2015, and it's worth a read.
