Gregory Shamus/Getty Images(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) — The Jacksonville Jaguars grabbed one of the most exciting college players on the last day of the NFL draft.

Former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson was tabbed by the Jaguars in the fifth round of the draft, although he was listed as a running back.

Robinson set the all-time rushing record for a quarterback while with the Wolverines, rushing for 4,495 over his career. He also passed for over 6,000 yards and 49 touchdowns during that time.

Before the draft, Robinson had agreed to play wherever a team would want him. “Whatever it takes to get on the field,” Robinson said. “I’m an offensive weapon.”

The Jaguars also chose South Carolina reciever Terry “Ace” Sanders in the fourth round.
