Allen Robinson was a hidden gem that broke records in his time as a Nittany Lion

Allen Robinson

Allen Robinson, who was rumored to have been brought in as a package deal when Penn State was pursuing Rob Bolden, became one of the most productive wide receivers in Penn State history.

Robinson had a quiet freshman season in 2011, recording three catches for 29 yards. He followed that up in 2012 by breaking the single-season receptions record at Penn State with 77. He also became the second wide receiver in Penn State history to have 1,000 yards in a season, joining Bobby Engram as the only other receiver to have done it. His efforts earned him First Team All Big Ten and Big Ten Richter-Howard Receiver-of-the-Year.

What did he do in 2013? Oh, nothing much. He just broke his own record by 20 catches, having 97 for the season. He also finished with 1432 yards, once again joining Bobby Engram as the only receivers in school history to have more than one thousand-yard season. There was also this little thing:

Robinson opted to enter the NFL draft after the 2013 season, and was selected in the second round by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He’s already had a Pro Bowl appearance in the three seasons he’s played in the NFL.
