    NFL DRAFT: With 2nd Pick, Rams Select GREG ROBINSON (OT, Auburn)

    GREG ROBINSON (OT, AUBURN)

    Strengths Weaknesses

    STRENGTHS: Remarkable combination of size, power and body control. Owns a prototypical frame for playing offensive line in the NFL, including broad shoulders, long arms, a relatively trim waist, thick bubble and tree trunks for legs.

    Latches on and controls as a run-blocker with good hand placement, easy knee bend and awesome power to simply maul opponents, often driving them yards off the line of scrimmage. Keeps his legs driving, showing good spatial awareness and body control to keep his feet in traffic. Good quickness for the down block and shows surprisingly light feet to adjust to moving targets when asked to block at the second level.

    Developing pass blocker with all of the physical traits scouts look for in an NFL left tackle. Quick out of his stance, plays with good flexibility and has the long arms and strong hands to catch edge rushers and ride them out of the pocket. An exceptional talent just scratching the surface of his potential.

    WEAKNESSES: Only two years of starting experience and played in a relatively simple collegiate system which catered to his strengths, rarely asking him to pass block on an island. Catches edge rushers and rides them wide but must learn to slide his feet more consistently or he will draw penalties for holding when matched against NFL speed.

    Can be a bit high off the snap. Can play too low, at times, leaving himself vulnerable to over-arm swim moves.

    Has only played on the offensive line since his junior year in high school (2009).

    COMPARES TO: Anthony Davis, San Francisco ***** - Like Davis, the physically-gifted talent selected No. 11 overall in 2010, Robinson boasts all of the traits to emerge as a dominating presence in the NFL. Whereas Davis entered the NFL with a history of weight issues and immaturity serving as potential red-flags to scouts, Robinson's relative inexperience (especially in pass protection) appears to be the only thing that could keep him from earning a blue chip grade.

    Player Overview

    Robinson was the No. 2-rated guard prospect in the nation and No. 4 recruit in Louisiana, according to Rivals.com. He was the No. 7 guard rated by Scout.com and No. 9 tackle by 247Sports.

    After redshirting in 2011, Robinson was thrown into the fire at left tackle the following season, starting 11 games and being named to the SEC Honor Roll.

    Robinson garnered first-team All-SEC honors for the conference champions as a redshirt sophomore.

    Robinson possesses all the physical characteristics you look for in a future elite NFL lineman. He's big, fast and fluid, and surprises with impressive body control for his size.

    Where he needs to improve is in his consistency, as his lack of long-term experience as an offensive lineman will show up in key areas like footwork and hand use.

    If he can put it all together, Robinson has the physical gifts to be one of the best at the next level.

    They must love him a lot to not trade cheaply.

    When I saw him on the Red carpet interview with he and his mom, I was sold on this young guy from Thibadeux.

    Knew it would be G-Rob. Fisher is a gambler and trusts his position coaches, and he's putting his job on the line that Coach Bou can coach up Robinson into a perennial pro bowler. Love the pick, love it.

    I preferred Matthews, but Auburn's Greg Robinson works just as well. Rams have their left tackle for the next decade plus. Thumbs up!!

    Agreed on both points. Wanted to see Matthews there but the upside of Robinson is maybe higher. I sure won't argue with that pick whatsoever.

    Robinson must be good for Fisher to go against his ties with the Mathews family.

    I knew those "family ties" meant nothing. You take the better player, it's a simple as that. G-Rob's ceiling is HUGE, his floor is an all-pro OG. This guy is the second coming of Larry Allen, literally.
