STATE COLLEGE - Where any particular player is selected can be a volatile and unpredictable business. Penn State wide receiver Allen Robinson is learning it first hand. The two-time Big Ten Wide Receiver of the Year is projected to be taken as early as the first round or as late as the third.

"I try not to think too much of it," Robinson says. "I can't control anything that I can't control."

So instead of parsing through mock draft, Robinson's focused on improving his trade. He's worked on becoming more efficient on the field, acting like a player with a chip on his shoulder.

"I wasn't highly recruited coming out of high school, so a lot of what's factored in, I'm not really too worried about where I'm getting drafted. All I can do is go out there and work," Robinson says.

Still,hearing his name selected by an NFL team is a lifelong dream.
When the time comes, Robinson says he'll be relaxing and watching at home.

"So all my family and all my close friends can attend," he says. "I think if I did it anywhere else, it'd be hard to get everybody who I want to enjoy that experience with to be there with me."
