    The transition for Michigan WR/QB Denard Robinson (5-10½, 196) hasn't been as easy as he hoped. For example, he had a false start today.

    But being able to take the yellow jersey off allowed him to run and show his ability to run with the ball in his hands. That has helped matters. With that yellow jersey on, it put him on an island and put him in situations where he wasn't comfortable.

    Moving forward it's important as to who is coaching him and with whom he is playing. If he goes back to Ann Arbor, Mich., and focuses on running a fast 40, that's not going to work. He needs to focus on running routes and catching the football. That's just one piece of the puzzle.

    Robinson will have his pro day, but teams that are interested in him are going to work him out separately on campus in Ann Arbor. If he shows improvement there, that will be a huge help.

    • Washington CB Desmond Trufant (5-11⅛, 190) doesn't have elite man-to-man coverage skills, but he has done a nice job on trail covers this week. He seems to be most comfortable in that type of coverage, and we've seen that on tape, too. On tape, he has been inconsistent with balls skills, but had a nice interception on Thursday.

    • Oregon RB Kenjon Barner (5-9¼, 188) was quick running routes and caught the ball well. He had a nice touchdown during the team period. He looked fluid and clean catching the ball.

    • You can see why UConn LB Sio Moore (6-foot-0¾, 242 pounds), who was a late addition and who looked good on Wednesday, is an intriguing prospect, especially in terms of him taking the next step when it comes to the combine. You can see Moore has strong east-west reach. The way he was running makes you think he will test well at the combine. In terms of the offseason process, he's capitalizing and he looks as if he can continue that momentum into Indianapolis.

    There was a lot of red zone work Thursday. Two receivers stood out:

    Arkansas' Cobi Hamilton (6-1¾, 199) and Baylor's Terrance Williams (6-1⅞), and for good reason. They have the size to be effective in the red zone.

    Williams is a smooth athlete for his size and did a really good job of opening up and catching the ball, as well as adjusting to the ball. He's a good red zone target.

    Hamilton is not as fast and explosive as Williams as a route-runner, but when you watch Hamilton, you see a physical route-runner. He has strong hands and uses his frame to shield defenders from the ball. You could see that Thursday in practice in one-on-ones. He did good job of consistently winning battles in the end zone.

    Cal's Marc Anthony (5-11⅜, 191) has stood out all week. He was the best defensive back from the South squad. He was the guy who got his hands on the ball the most. With good instincts and anticipation, he is good at reading routes, he's very balanced and has a knack for finding the ball.

    His timing is great when it comes to leaping for the ball, and he's aggressive trying to rake the ball away. I have not seen a defensive back get his hands on more passes than Anthony. He capped off a good week and helped himself, for sure.

    Boy the NFL network and ESPN could not be more different in their takes on Mike Glennon.
