Maybe someone will, but Al Davis is dead so the obvious joke doesn't apply anymore.
I mean, let us not forget that Troy Williamson ran a 4.3 and had experience playing wide receiver in college. If you can't catch the ball, you can't play receiver.
You have to remember that Robinson has an injured hand, some say, he shouldn't even be working out. As for just having straight line speed, Robinson has wiggle, a lot of it, it is just raw at this point at WR but the potential is there.
