ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Denard Robinson is going into his college finale without it being public knowledge which position he's going to play.

It perhaps provides a preview of his unclear future in football.

The three-year starting quarterback might not throw for No. 19 Michigan against No. 11 South Carolina on New Year's Day at the Outback Bowl.

Robinson probably will catch some passes, lining up as a running back or receiver.

He says hopefully showing he can make plays without taking snaps will help NFL teams see what he can do, adding playmakers can't hide.

Some project Robinson as a receiver in the pro. NFL draft consultant and former Dallas Cowboys general manager Gil Brandt says he would draft Robinson and convert him to cornerback.
