    Round 1, Pick #2: Rams Select - OT Greg Robinson




    St. Louis Rams: Round 1, Pick #2

    Greg Robinson, OT



    Height: 6'5"
    Weight: 332 lbs
    Arm Length: 35"
    Hand Size: 10"
    College: Auburn


    STRENGTHS:
    Has long arms and excellent overall body mass. Outstanding run blocker with the strength and power to wash down half of the line. Creates a surge and generates power from his lower body. Good get-off and body control. Excellent reach-blocking, chipping and releasing to the second level. Very good balance in his set and is quick to cut off the rush. Can maneuver his hips, shuffle, slide and mirror. Has a strong punch and replaces his hands. Very athletic in vertical sets.

    WEAKNESSES:
    Could stand to refine his technique in pass protection and do a better job finishing blocks. At times will quit after contact and let defenders come underneath or get over the top -- handwork is too passive. Developing eyes and awareness vs. the blitz -- still learning how to adjust to overload pressure and could improve switching off blocks. Aggressively overextends and occasionally loses balance and falls off blocks.


    BOTTOM LINE:
    Big, strong, athletic, overpowering left tackle with the raw potential to become a premiere, franchise left tackle. Is only a third-year sophomore and two-year starter and still must improve his hand use, footwork and technique. However, he is undeniably gifted and capable of walking into a starting-left-tackle job in the pros and paving the way in the run game.

    Yeah I guess it's decent since we have Stacy. I thought Barksdale was good enough at RT but whatever. This line better kick ***.

    This is one of the best lineman I have ever seen. He has some insane potential. I guess they are going to play him at LG. That side will be deadly. Sadly, good pick...

    i honestly wouldve been happier if we traded back and picked matthews to put at RT but since hes a run blocker at heart he'll be perfect at RT

    I don't think there was enough interest in trading up. Falcons would have tried trading up if Clowney randomly fell to us, but they wanted Mack and they felt he would still be available at 4 (but bills moved up for this pick) or even at their pick.

    Rams' initial plan to is to play No. 2 overall pick, former Auburn left tackle Greg Robinson, at left guard. Left tackle one day.

    Well we have no left guard at all really. Unless Barret Jones steps up. And Barksdale played well so itd be a very good line. Jake long graded out as like a top 3 run blocker last season so I can drool over Stacy running between Long and Robinson
