The Las Vegas Raiders have one of the more talented wide receiver groups in the NFL. At the head of this core is All-Pro Davante Adams, which naturally means that others such as Demarcus Robinson are learning from No. 17.
Robinson, who comes to the Raiders after spending his career in Kansas City, is no stranger to a competitive wide receiver ensemble. In Las Vegas, Robinson joins an elite group spearheaded by Adams, along with Hunter Renfrow and Keelan Cole. With training camp underway, Robinson addressed several points having to do with the Raiders’ receiver corps.
When asked about the competitive nature of his teammates, Robinson seemed enthused.
“It’s good, man. It’s a lot of great guys on the field, so it opens up a lot. It shouldn’t be too hard to get open.”
It’s certainly an accurate assessment by Robinson that the Raiders are loaded right now. If anything, Robinson could have a fantastic year playing behind Renfrow and Adams. Also, don’t forget the team has one of the best tight ends in the NFL in Darren Waller, who will undoubtedly create openings and mismatches.
Demarcus Robinson is making the most out of his time with Davante Adams in Raiders training camp
Speaking of Adams, Robinson is making the most of Adams’ presence in camp. Adams is one of the best wide receivers in the game, and any player worth his weight is taking advantage of this time to pick up even the little things. In fact, Robinson heaped plenty of praise on both Adams and Renfrow.
“Oh yes, everything. Davante and I would say Hunter [Renfrow]. Davante has got [some] nice releases, everybody knows that. Taking a lot of stuff from him. Late hands, catching the ball, how to track the ball. There is a lot of stuff you can learn from both of those guys.“
So far, Robinson is making waves at camp, and as of today, he’s in the second tier of wide receivers according to OurLads.com, alongside Mack Hollins and Tyron Johnson. For now, Robinson’s progress will certainly be a noteworthy development.
