As the clock ticks until Tuesday’s franchise tag deadline, the time arrived at this week’s NFL Scouting Combine to discuss the possibility of the Jaguars moving on from receiver Allen Robinson. They wouldn’t, right? They wouldn’t let their best offensive weapon from 2015-16 walk out the door with no compensation, right? They wouldn’t paint themselves into the figurative corner of needing to draft a receiver in the opening two rounds, right? A caveat: Things could change quickly. Negotiations could pick up. A deal could be struck. This could all be moot and No. 15 will return to his spot as target No. 1 for quarterback Blake Bortles. But the longer the Jaguars don’t tag Robinson – at a hefty cost of $16.4 million – and don’t re-sign him to a multi-year contract, the more we start thinking about a receiving corps led by second-year players Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole and players to be acquired later.
If A-Rob departs, pressure turns to Westbrook, Cole
