Suddenly missing football again now that the 2020 NFL Draft is behind us? Chicago Bears fans can fill the void by throwing it back with some amazing highlights from Allen Robinson's high school football career.
Playing at St. Mary's Prep in Michigan, Robinson's elite potential was on display from a young age.
Robinson was a multi-sport standout in high school, playing basketball and competing on the track and field team in addition to playing football. Even after he helped lead his team to the Division 3 state championship game, Robinson was only a three-star recruit when he committed to Penn State.
Robinson didn't crack the Nittany Lions' starting lineup until his sophomore year, but he made the most of it when he did. In his final two collegiate seasons he caught 174 passes for 2,450 yards and 17 touchdowns, earning himself second-round pick status in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Despite being held back by poor quarterback play with the Jacksonville Jaguars, it was clear early on that Robinson was for real in the pros. In his second year (2015) he turned 151 targets into 80 receptions, 1,400 yards and a league-leading 14 touchdowns.
He's also coming off the second-best season of his career, having racked up 1,147 yards and 7 touchdowns on 98 receptions for the Chicago Bears in 2019.
Bears fans have to be excited about the future of their offense while Robinson is the No. 1 option in the passing game.
