Since OKST's Robinson has now been touted by FoxSports.com AND ESPN Insider (via this article), I am going to say that he is now NOT qualified to be a "sleeper."
but he has a nose for the end zone
Really? Does this phenomena even exist in any useful or predictive way?
I'd rather have a player that has feet for the end zone.
As long as it's not a nose for the ball.
Maybe his nose is so big and protrudes so far that the ball can be safely inserted into a nostril in goal line situations allowing him to stiff arm with both arms.
Hmmmm.... if somebody tackles him he might score three points...
or if he would have a cold he might kill somebody in the stands...
If a RB could stuff the ball in his own nose, would the NFL classify antihistamines as a performance enhancing drug?
As a huge FO fan, this has to be the first time I have seen them mention someone as having a "nose for the endzone" without some kind of stats to back it up - any numbers for us Aaron that would suggest this is a product of his actual skill?
Dr. Backshoulder's low catch rate: an aberration, or a long-term problem?
