I always get excited when I see that a good player on a bad team announces his intent to transfer. As a result, when Wan’Dale Robinson announced that he would be transferring from Nebraska to Kentucky, I knew that it would be a slam dunk fit. Playing primarily in the slot, Robinson is an intelligent weapon that possesses speed and elusiveness. With the University of Kentucky finding success in the SEC, Wan’Dale Robinson is seeing his NFL Draft stock on the rise.
I’ve embedded a tweet below from Tyler Browning of Blue Chip Scouting. On the play, notice how elusive Robinson really is. Additionally, take note of how quickly he accelerates once he gets through the gap.

At the University of Nebraska, Robinson was used in a variety opposition’s and formations. Ultimately, Robinson is in a much better situation with Kentucky. Furthermore, Liam Coen is the offensive coordinator for the Wildcats. Even further, Coen is an up-and-coming coordinator that’s leading a revitalized Wildcats offense.
Will Wan’Dale Robinson Declare For The 2022 NFL Draft?
Firstly, Robinson is a junior, so it’s not certain that he’ll declare for the NFL Draft. If he enters the NFL Draft, I have Robinson being selected in the fourth-to-fifth round. However, if Kentucky continues to find success this season, look for Robinson’s draft stock to climb even further.
In terms of a perfect fit in the NFL, I like the New York Jets. Jamison Crowder, their current slot receiver, is in the final year of his three-year contract. Robinson’s skillset is very complimentary to Zach Wilson. An intelligent slot receiver, that also possesses quickness and solid top end speed, is a best friend for a young quarterback.
