Wide Receiver Wan'Dale Robinson

Q: What's your first training camp been like? I know it's only been a week or so, but what are your impressions?

A: It's been great, really just trying to go out each and every day and just get better. Really just trying to do whatever the coaches ask of me, and make sure the team is getting better each and every day.

Q: I know you did it in college, but did you expect to be lining up at running back and taking hand-offs when you got here?

A: Yeah, I figured that would be a little bit a part of the plan but again, wherever Coach (Head Coach Brian Daboll) Dabs and Coach (Offensive Coordinator Mike Kafka) Kafka want me to line up, I'll be more than happy to line up whether that's running back, inside slot receiver, or outside receiver.

Q: What do you think of that package where it could be you, (Wide Receiver) Kadarius (Toney), and (Running Back) Saquon (Barkley) all in the backfield together?

A: I think it could be pretty exciting, we'll see the stuff that they come up with, and whenever game time comes, I'm sure you'll be happy to see it.

Q: Can you throw?

A: Hey, you're going to have to see. We can't give anything out right now (laughs).

Q: Do you add to that every day, are you introducing new things and new wrinkles you can do off of that?

A: Just a little bit. Dabs likes to play with it a little bit, but just different stuff each and every day that we're doing.

Q: Do you feel like things clicked a little bit for the offense over the last day or two?

A: Yeah, each and every day we're just getting better. This is a new system that we're all learning, and just the communication aspect and everything all has to come together for us to be a really good offense.

Q: How fun is it for you knowing that you have options now and can run these routes to basically do what you say, as opposed to being stuck in a certain route?

A: It's great, this is the type of offense that you'd want to be in as a receiver. They give you a lot of flexibility on running your routes and just allowing you to make plays and get open.

Q: Do you feel like you're making plays? You see you're getting a lot of passes over the middle, are you feeling like, 'I'm doing really well'?

A: I'm just trying to go out there every day and prove that they drafted me for a reason. I'm just trying to do everything that I can to help our team win in whatever aspect, whether that's running the ball, catching the ball, I'm just willing to do so.

Q: You had a little (Tackle) Evan Neal impersonation on the swing pass to Saquon.

A: I was trying to make sure Say got in the endzone and I definitely think he would've got in right there. Really just trying to do whatever I can to help our team win, and if that's in the blocking game then that'll be me too.

Q: It was a pretty good hold for what, 185 pounds?

A: Yeah, whatever they need me, I got it (laughs).

Q: You're not the biggest guy out there, do you notice a difference at this level, is there anything that's more difficult because of that?

A: No, it's been like this my whole life since I started playing at five years old. I've always been one of the smaller ones and had to overcome that. I'm not going to treat it any different now. At the end of the day, it's still football and my job is to go out there and make plays and get open.

Q: Aren't there a lot of receivers now that aren't the biggest guys in the world?

A: Yeah, we all have our own ways of getting open and doing our own thing. I don't really try to compare myself to anybody or anybody that's the same size because everybody does things really well that I might not do really well. It's part of the game.

Q: That kind of puts you at an advantage though because you can duck under pads and avoid the hit.

A: Yeah, that definitely helps sometimes. You get lost in traffic a little bit. At the end of the day, you've just got to keep making plays.

Q: You're a part of a group of exciting new talent that's coming here, and it seems like you're getting into the swing of things at camp. Do you feel just a sense of optimism about the season and what you guys can accomplish together?

A: Yeah definitely, that's just with the whole group. The whole group is even excited for us and they're all helping us out in every way possible. So, just really going out there every day and we're all working just trying to do what we can to help this team.

seems like he'd be such a joy to play with and coach. He's so affable and good-natured, always smiling and positive.

Also, damn, he's one solidly built dude.

Who hopefully enjoys a much different fate than his predecessors did.
