Both players took stock of their standing in the eyes of NFL scouts by filing paperwork to the NFL Draft advisory board. College players can use the board to gauge where they might be drafted, if at all.
"It's been a dream to play in the NFL, & hopefully after next year that becomes a reality," Robinson was quoted in the @umichfootball Twitter feed. "... but I wouldn't pass up being here w/ my teammates & coaches for anything. It's my second family. I love my teammates, I love Michigan."
Floyd, too, was quoted on the Twitter feed, saying, "Being around all of the great people here, I just couldn't see myself not being here for my senior year."
Robinson said from the start that he was likely to return for his senior year. He ran and passed for 3,219 yards and 34 touchdowns as Michigan went 11-2 and beat Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl. As a sophomore, he set the NCAA season record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 1,702.
Floyd broke up nine passes this season, a team high, had two interceptions and forced a fumble.
