Despite not being drafted due to to a U.S. Department of Defense policy shift, former Air Force wide receiver Jalen Robinette isn’t giving up his dream of playing in the NFL.
This weekend, Robinette will be attending the Buffalo Bills’ rookie minicamp, according to the team.
The most prolific wide receiver in Air Force history, Robinette finished his career as the program’s all-time leader in receiving yards, with 2,697. He also led the nation in yards per catch last season, at 27.4.
Robinette was invited to both the Senior Bowl and the NFL Scouting Combine. He is a strong, physical receiver that excels at going up and getting jump balls. He was projected to be a mid-round pick.
Robinette’s agent David Lisko is still fighting for his client to be able to play this year; as he is lobbying decisionmakers in Washington D.C..
