Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson finished the 2016 Pro Bowl with just two catches, but finished as the game's leading receiver with two receptions for 105 yards. He was also the only player to have more than 100 yards.

The first was a 55-yard pass over the middle from Russell Wilson right between defenders Charles Woodson of the Oakland Raiders and Jason Verrett of the San Diego Chargers.

The second was a beautiful double-move (and a Teddy Bridgewater pass that Robinson had to adjust to) that had Verrett biting hard. Oof.

Robinson was the seventh of eight receivers picked, with only Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton picked after him. His team, Team Irvin, won the game 49-27 thanks in large part to Wilson's 8-for-12, three touchdowns, no interception day. Wilson's three touchdown passes went to Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman and Todd Gurley.

Voted as a first alternate, Robinson wasn't invited to the Pro Bowl until Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson excused himself because of injury.
