METAIRIE - New Orleans Saints running back Khiry Robinson gets a little nervous when media gathers around his locker, which is a more frequent occurrence lately.

The second-year pro never got much attention playing junior college and Division II football. That's changed now that he's leading the Saints in rushing with 304 yards and two touchdowns - including last Sunday's game-winning score on a tackle-breaking 18-yard run in overtime against Tampa Bay.

Robinson says playing in the NFL "still feels like a dream sometimes," which is why he's "always running from the cameras."

Tight end says Robinson runs with a certain power that it hard to teach because it has more to do with how naturally he's able to move with quickness, leverage and balance than his weight-room strength.
