Entering his seventh NFL season, former Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson continues to earn the respect of his peers, checking in at No. 93 on the NFL Top 100 list.

Robinson is heading into this third year with the Bears after spending the first four years of his career in Jacksonville, where he was a second-round pick in 2014. In his first two years in Chicago, he caught 153 passes for 1901 yards and 11 touchdowns. He secured a career-high 98 catches in 2019 and went over 1000 receiving yards for the second time in his career.

The Michigan native spent three seasons in Happy Valley, having a breakout season under Bill O'Brien in 2012 before setting new Penn State records for single-season receptions (97) and receiving yards (1432) in 2013. He won the Richter-Howard Big Ten Receiver of the Year Award in 2012 and 2013, making him the only two-team winner in the award's history. He finished his Penn State career with 177 catches, 2479 yards, and 17 touchdowns. Oh, and he did this.
