As Jaguars training camp approaches, there will be many of guys fighting for jobs. There will be plenty of camp battles, and plenty of cuts made. A lot of guys will go home saddened, and disappointed that their hard work and efforts was not merely enough. There will be plenty of storylines to follow this summer, and Jaguars 101 will have it covered.

I recently asked senior writer John Oehser of Jaguars.com what kind of shot he felt young receiver Brian Robiskie had of making the Jaguars final roster. This was his response:

"I think he has a real chance – a better chance than many think. He’s certainly not discussed much, but the Jaguars like him and Mike Mularkey has talked a lot about his consistency. He may have to beat out Lee Evans to do it, but it’s probably too early to talk about specifically who he’ll have to beat out. That should shake out in training camp and preseason."

Ultimately, I do think Robiskie makes the team as a bottom of the depth chart guy. With him being 6'3, 209 lbs., I think his size could become an asset at the position. With Head Coach Mike Mularkey already raving about his consistency, this would give Gabbert a big bodied target down the field in 2012. Robiskie is a former second round pick of the Cleveland Browns, but has not had a lot of production in his early career. 

Last year, he battled injuries and never made it on the field for Jacksonville. At only 24 years old he could definitely be a player to watch this summer, especially under the supervision of receivers coach Jerry Sullivan. Time will tell, but it is time for certain players to start reaching their potential as a pro, and this is one of them. One thing that embraces optimism with the roster this year is the depth the team has at wide receiver.

How do you feel about Brian Robiskie heading towards training camp?
