    Former Michigan star Denard Robinson made his debut with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday, showing off his speed and versatility as the team opened a three-day rookie minicamp.

    A fifth-round pick making the transition from quarterback to running back, Robinson took the majority of repetitions with the first-team offense and even upstaged first-rounder Luke Joeckel. With maize-and-blue clad fans cheering his every move in a pouring rain, Robinson lined up in the backfield and at receiver during the two-hour practice and broke several long runs while also catching all but one pass thrown his way.

    "It was a good start for him, although we don't talk much about the start," coach Gus Bradley said. "We're more concerned about how we finish, but it was good. One of our philosophies on offense is trying to get (the ball) in playmakers' hands. ... That's why you saw him play some multiple positions just to see what he can do, what he can take on and give him a little bit of a flavor."

    Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch was excited about the addition.

    "It's kind of fun just to get a feel for what he can do," Fisch said. "I know he's certainly a weapon from looking at all his college film. Now, it's a matter of what can he do best for us. We're looking forward to being able to move around to a lot of other spots as well."

    With injured starter Maurice Jones-Drew still unable to practice following foot surgery, Robinson will get plenty of reps returns to practice in two weeks,.
