UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Former Penn State quarterback, NFL veteran and NFL Network analyst Michael Robinson is featured in the NFL Network's Back 2 Campus series that premieres Monday, April 25.
Robinson returned to Happy Valley to reflect on his Nittany Lion playing career and meet with NFL draft prospect Christian Hackenberg. Robinson's Back 2 Campus premieres during Path to the Draft at 6 p.m. on Monday, April 25, on the NFL Network.
Back 2 Campus highlights the journey to the NFL as the former players reflect on their college years and give advice to prospects following in their footsteps. The series is full of surprises, as life has changed tremendously for the analysts since the last time they stepped foot on campus. From bagging groceries to leading teams to championships, the NFL legends offer words of wisdom to the next generation of NFL hopefuls and show that their draft pick number does not determine their future.
Robinson was the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in 2005 after leading the Nittany Lions to an 11-1 overall record, the Big Ten championship and a berth in the Orange Bowl. He finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting as a senior. Robinson was selected in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He spent nine seasons playing fullback in the NFL with the 49ers and Seattle Seahawks. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2011 and won a Super Bowl championship with the Seahawks.
Hackenberg left Penn State with this name etched at the top of the career passing record books. He ranks first in Penn State history in career passing yards (8,457), touchdowns (48), 300-yard passing games (9), 200-yard passing games (21), attempts (1,235), completions (693) and total offense (8,215). Hackenberg is the only quarterback in program history with 8,000 yards passing and three 2,000-yard passing seasons.
Encores of the segments will run throughout draft week on NFL Network and can be found on the official NFL YouTube channel at YouTube.com/NFL. Fans can join the conversation online using the hashtag #Back2Campus.
