Prospect Profile: Greg Robinson
In order to familiarize fans with some of the top names in the 2014 NFL Draft, Chargers.com will be highlighting a different prospect each weekday leading up to the first day of the draft on May 8th.
We continue the series with a scouting report of Auburn’s Greg Robinson.
Name: Greg Robinson
Weight: 332 pounds
Position: Offensive Tackle
The comparisons between Greg Robinson and D.J. Fluker are quite remarkable.
Both are massive tackles with a rare combination of size, strength and athleticism. They each stand 6-5, weigh relatively the same and were dominant forces for an SEC powerhouse. Off the field they have had similar experiences as well, being born in Louisiana and displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
With the great success that Fluker had in his first season with the Bolts, it’s no wonder that Robinson is shooting up draft boards.
The Auburn star was rising prior to the combine, but his performance in Indianapolis lifted him to another level. His 4.92 40-yard dash
Robinson’s showing at Lucas Oil Field backed up the best of his game tape. When he gets his hands on a defender the battle is pretty much over. He simply dominates his opponent once he latches on. A mauler in every sense of the word, he drives opponents backward in the run game, while in pass protection is quick out of his stance with a powerful first punch.
Despite his success, Robinson is still relatively raw. He didn’t start playing offensive line until his junior year in high school, and after red-shirting his first year at Auburn, only suited up 26 times in college. The fact that he’s had the success he’s had while just scratching the surface of his immense talent bodes well for a prosperous NFL future.
40-yard Dash: 4.92
