- Greg Robinson
- Offensive Tackle
Everyone saw Jadeveon Clowney startle the NFL with his freakish speed at the Combine. But considering overall size as mass, height, and weight, it’s quite possible that Greg Robinson may be the most athletic candidate this year. It’s not often that a 6’5, 332 pound offensive tackle runs a 40 yard dash under five seconds; 4.92 to be exact with a 1.68 second 10 yard split.
I know what you’re thinking, what’s the catch? His upper body is weak, right? Wrong. Robinson pushed 225 lbs 32 reps. That was fourth best among all offensive linemen. Imagine 35 inch arms punching you out of the way and having the ability to block 10 yards downfield in under two seconds. That impressive strength and speed reminds me of legendary lineman Orlando Pace. Not many can flip pancakes like Orlando Pace, but Robinson has the potential.
Robinson can square his hips and shoulders, able to mirror rushers anywhere off the edge. Most rookie tackles have trouble with balance. Leverage wins in the trenches. Despite his tall 6’5 frame, Robinson has a canny knack of bending to meet the blitz as if attacking them. His quick feet and long arms are used like a boxer keeping rushers at bay. And like a wrestler, Robinson has fun in the run game; driving double, sometimes triple-teams to the second level.
At only 21 years old, Robinson has a sky high ceiling. Whoever picks him will have stolen a franchise left tackle and personal protector for their franchise quarterback. Remember the name, Greg Robinson.
