Today we bring you part 2 of our series on the least-known Green bay Packers currently on the 2011 roster.
Antonio Robinson, WR 6;1″, 195lbs., Nicholls State. From Miami Florida, Robinson went the Community College route before transferring to Nicholls State, which is known for their triple-option running game. Robinson was the team’s leading receiver two years in a row with 20 and 27 catches, which gives you an idea how little they throw the ball. Robinson ran a 4.50 40 yd dash at his pro day with a 36″ vertical leap. He was the 49th ranked WR out of 276 by NFLDraftScout.com
Robinson was signed as an UDFA by the Bears and released with an injury settlement in training camp. He landed on the Seattle practice squad for two weeks in November before being signed to the Packers’ practice squad a few weeks before the Super Bowl and then to a reserve/future contract in February.
Jay Ross, DT, 6’3″, 302lbs., East Carolina. C.J. Wilson’s teammate at East Carolina, Jay Ross is a “character” guy with a Capital “C.” Wilson called him the hardest working guy on the team and his college coach called him the most respected player on the team. He was a three-year starter at East Carolina and earned honorable mention All-Conference USA honors three times. Ross was invited to the NFL Combine, where he ran a 5.10 40 yd dash, a 1.68 10 yd dash and recorded 30 reps on the bench press. Ross was ranked 24th out of 151 DTs by NFLDraftScout.com.
