STILLWATER — Zac Robinson should be the poster boy for what a football player can accomplish during the months between the end of his senior season to the final weeks leading up to the NFL Draft.

The former Oklahoma State quarterback has proven time and time again that he deserves a shot as an NFL quarterback.

Robinson started with a strong showing at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. on Jan. 30, passing for a game-high 173 yards and one touchdown. He followed that with a strong showing at the NFL Combine, ranking among the top quarterbacks in the 40-yard dash (4.71 seconds), vertical jump (35 inches) and broad jump (9-2).

Robinson capped a strong three months of workouts with a solid throwing day at OSU’s Pro Day on Wednesday.

With 40 NFL personnel — from 27 teams — on hand, including general managers Martin Mayhew of Detriot, Buddy Nix of Buffalo and Scot McCloughan of San Francisco, Robinson threw for about a half hour and it was clear his arm strength has returned after he finished the season battling a shoulder injury.

"It felt really good throwing today,” Robinson said. "They (NFL scouts) told me they saw everything they needed. I feel really good about today.”

Pleased with his solid showing at the NFL Combine, Robinson did not participate in any weight lifting or timing drills at Pro Day.

"I do feel good about the past few months,” Robinson said. "With the way the regular season ended and being injured and not playing as well... I think the Senior Bowl helped me out a lot and the Combine went really well.
