During last weekend's rookie minicamp, there was only one tight end there working out. That tight end being Gerrell Robinson. The former wide receiver worked one on one with Tight Ends Coach Clancy Barone all weekend at the rookie minicamp.

Here's what Robinson had to say about his one on one workouts with Coach Barone:

"It’s given me time to slow things down," Robinson said of being his position coach's lone pupil, an experience he's never had before. "It hasn’t been chaotic with the installs."

"It’s given me a chance to be one-on-one with him and learn the ins and outs and little innuendos about playing tight end."

Gerell Robinson joined the Broncos in 2012 as an Un-drafted Free Agent in 2012, but has failed to make the final roster in 2012 and 2013.

Near the beginning of the 2013 season, Broncos GM John Elway approached Robinson about the position change. Robinson was on board with the change, and has been working on it ever since then.

Robinson certainly has the frame to make the transition. Coming into the league Robinson was listed at 6'4, 215lbs. Now according to Robinson he's gained about 20 pounds since the transition.

"Right now I’m probably 238, 240 and I’m still gradually fine tuning things and getting stronger. That’s the main thing, getting stronger."

I'm excited to see what Tight Ends Coach Clancy Barone can do with Robinson. He's coached up Tight Ends Alge Crumpler, Antonio Gates, and Julius Thomas to a combined for five Pro-Bowls.

Here's what Robinson had to say about Coach Barone.

"If you talk to him for five minutes you understand he knows the game," Robinson said. "Any time I get a chance to talk to him one-on-one, go up to his office or even get a chance like this, I couldn’t pass this up to soak up all that knowledge."

To make the roster, Robinson will have to beat out veterans Joel Dreessen, Jacob Tamme, and Virgil Green. So that won't be an easy task for Robinson, but he's ready to take on that challenge.

"I’m still learning little things, you know?" Robinson said. "But as far as heart and work ethic, I’m all there."
