Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley believes that Denard Robinson has all the traits to become a successful running back in the NFL.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley believes that Denard Robinson's future could be at running back.

The Jaguars drafted the 23-year-old in the fifth round of the 2013 Draft and designated him without a position on their roster.

However, after trying him at wide receiver and in the wildcat formation, Bradley now believes that he can be a running back following a decent outing against the San Francisco 49ers.

"We tried him at wildcat and tried him at receiver and we just said that didn't work real well," Bradley told the Florida Times-Union. "Let's put him at tailback. He never played it before, but when he did, some things came naturally to him.

"He gained our trust as far as ball security and he had a really good work of practice before the San Francisco game and we said, 'All right, let's get him in there and see what he can do.'"

The Jaguars are 0-8 in their season.
