With the second overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams have selected Greg Robinson out of Auburn.
Position: Offensive Tackle
Measurables: 6’5”, 332 lbs, 35” arm length, 10” hands
Robinson was a state champion shot putter in high school back in Louisiana, and was a heavily-sought after recruit before landing with Auburn back in 2011. Robinson started 25-of-26 games for Auburn from 2012-13, before leaving school early in April of this year after his father passed on. Robinson exhibited exceptional athleticism at the NFL Combine, posting a 4.92 40-yard-dash time and a 113-inch broad jump – both scores in the top-tier for linemen.
Robinson has long arms and great mass behind them, showcasing the ability to move defenders off the ball seemingly at ease. Robinson is amazing as a run blocker, using his natural strength and force to stagger two or three defenders at a time. Robinson’s powerful lower body serves him well on the initial push, and his instinct and reach make him just as effective on the second level. Robinson excels standing up, and has piston-like arm speed which can stun and immobilize defenders.
