Analysis:

A truly rare physical talent. Greg Robinson has the tools to be one of the most dominant tackles in the NFL. He’s young (only a redshirt sophomore) and he’s got almost endless raw potential. Robinson will take time to develop as a pass blocker however. He lacks refinement in this area, partially due to his youth but also due to the offense at Auburn. In some formations the right guard would pull and pass block on the left side, outside of Robinson. That didn’t always afford him the chance to anchor and set the edge of the pocket. He will have to work on his footwork, learn to take proper angles, and to not attack defenders when pass blocking. With proper coaching, Robinson will be a perennial pro-bowler.
