Report

Greg Robinson is a redshirt Sophomore who has started at left tackle over his last two seasons earning a First-Team All-SEC selection this year.  Robinson isn't as tall as most teams like at tackle, but his thick frame and nimble feet more than make up for that.
 
When it comes to run blocking, Robinson is in a class by himself.  With his strong hands and jarring explosiveness off the snap, Robinson can get into defenders and drive them off the ball in a dominating fashion.  Mostly, Robinson's blocking took place in smaller spaces, but he has the feet to get outside when asked.
 
As dominating as Robinson is as a run blocker, he is green as a pass protector.  Robinson allowed 3 sacks over final two games and 9 over the previous two seasons and needs a great deal of technique work so he'll stop leaning so much rather than just trusting his feet and natural power.
 
Robinson needs work in pass protection, but he has the necessary traits to turn pass protection into a strength within a couple of years.  When you combine his size, power, feet and overall upside, Robinson has the potential to be the first tackle taken in this year's draft.
