Rookie WR Robiskie Looking to Make an Impact Right Away

Fiesta Bowl Ohio St Football
With Donte’ Stallworth’s future with the Browns in doubt, the team is going to need to have some of their young WR’s step up and make an impact in the 2009 season. Two of them – Brian Robiskie and Mohamed Massaquoi are in Florida this week at the NFL rookie symposium, and Robiskie knows the chance that awaits.

“We’re all aware of it but they don’t bring it up and say this might be or not be or what could happen,” said Robiskie. “They just let us go play. They know that with all the receivers we have, there are going to be opportunities for a lot of guys. They just stress for us to go out there and compete.”

It sure would be nice for both of the rookie WR’s to step up and have solid seasons, but even if one could come in and have a good season opposite Braylon Edwards, that would be a great help. From early reports, Robiskie is going to have every chance to be on the field opening day vs Minnesota as a starter or at worst third WR.

    Edwards is the number one. Robiskie will be the number two. The Team is likely hoping that Edwards will run deeper routes to stretch the defense which will open up shorter patterns for Brian.

    depending on a rookie WR is not something i would be to pumped about. its very rare for that to work out the only rookie WR in recent memory to have a great impact was desean Jackson many rookie WRs that didn’t have an impact would include Sweed, C. Johnson’s 1st year, Ted Gin, and our friend Braylon edwards…..I think the Robiskie hype is just that…..hype, lets see what he can do when he had AFC north DBs on him like ed reed and troy Polumalu, in the raven and steelers 3-4 the safties cover the number 2 and 3 WR sometimes to cause confusion b/c their CBs and ISLs MLBs are athledic enough to cover both TEs on short routes on WRs in a zone. Even in man coverage the pittsuke and ratbirds CBs can cover extremly well.

    We shouldn’t underestimate the fact of him being around the pros all his life, and having the coaching he’s had from dad. If they don’t baby him in training camp and he gets a little toughened up, he’ll surprize lots. I look for him to get better every week and do very well.
    But I’m just getting more and more opto-mystic
    as we roll on here.
    go browns!
