The Invitations Keep Coming For Gerell Robinson

Last week, Arizona State Sun Devils wide receiver Gerell Robinson accepted an invitation to play in the annual East-West Shrine Game for college seniors. Now he's headed to play in the highest-profile game for draft-bound seniors, the Senior Bowl.

No need to re-hash Robinson's numbers from 2011 except to say that he was one of a handful of bright spots for underachieving ASU. Here they are anyway.

The Senior Bowl is big-time. Coaches, scouts, front office types and personnel departments from every NFL team converge on Mobile, Ala., for a week of practices led by NFL assistants and players are intensely evaluated and scrutinized for their NFL potential. It's like a big convention for coaches and is the last major showcase of college talent before the annual combine in February. Not that Robinson wasn't an NFL prospect already, but this invitation would indicate that such status for him is bonafide.

The Shrine Game is this Saturday at 2 p.m. Arizona time on the NFL Network; the Senior Bowl practices will be shown on that network and the game is Jan. 28 at 2 p.m., also via NFL Network.

Other familiar names currently on the Senior Bowl roster: LB Emmanuel Acho of Texas (younger brother of the Arizona Cardinals' LB Sam Acho) and QB Nick Foles of Arizona.
