MMQB: Will Allen Robinson Go Pro After This Year?

Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

It's time we have this discussion.

Allen Robinson is the best wide receiver in the Big Ten and one of the five best receivers in college football. Neither of these statements are debatable at this point of the year.

Here are the junior's video game-esque numbers on the season: 66 receptions, 1,043 yards, 6 TD's, 15.8 YPC. You can either be dumbfounded by how amazing those numbers are, you can say "holy shit he still has four more games this year," or you can make fun of Cari for that whole "Brandon Felder will be the team's leading receiver this season" thing. Or a combination of all three! Especially that last one. This is what happens when you try to be Skip Bayless, Cari.

Against Illinois, Robinson was at it again. 11 receptions, 165 yards, and while he didn't catch a touchdown, he did that whole "Christian, throw the ball to me near the sidelines and I'm going to make one of the craziest catches you'll ever see" thing again.

With all that in mind, we need to remember that the NFL is looming over Robinson's head. He can declare after this year, and to be honest, I don't think anyone can blame him if he does. He's a potential first rounder, and I know I'd give a kidney to get him on my team. Onto the question(s)...

Does Allen Robinson declare for the NFL draft after this season? Why or why not? What things factor into his decision? And if he ends up on my beloved Patriots, we'd win the Super Bowl next year, right?
