SMU’s Robinson hopes to follow Sanders’ route

A year ago, WR Emmanuel Sanders went from a third-round pick out of SMU to playing in the Super Bowl with the Steelers.

While Aldrick Robinson isn’t expected to go quite as high in this year’s draft, the receiver should be a late-round choice and helped solidify his standing with a solid positional workout at SMU’s pro day on Monday.

Seventeen teams were on hand to see Robinson and 10 other players, including one from Midwestern State, work outdoors on FieldTurf.

Robinson (5-foot-9 5/8, 182 pounds) caught the ball well away from his body and comes from a pass-first offense. He stood on all of his combine numbers.

LB Pete Fleps (6 7/8, 236) also impressed. He likely earned himself a free-agent contract after running the 40-yard dash in 4.77 and 4.76 seconds. He also had a 4.57 short shuttle, 7.07 three-cone drill, 34 1/2-inch vertical jump, 10-2 broad jump and did 23 reps on the bench at 225 pounds.
