Draft Scout *Greg Robinson News
05/12/14 - Said Fisher, "He's very, very athletic and learns very well. Boo (line coach Paul Boudreau) will get him going." Fisher acknowledged that Robinson will likely begin his career at guard. The Rams' starters last season were Jake Long at left tackle and Joe Barksdale at right tackle. Rodger Saffold, who opened the 2013 season at right tackle, eventually was switched to right guard and when Saffold was re-signed as an unrestricted free agent in March, it was with the intention to play him at guard. Long suffered a torn ACL late last season, but the Rams believe he will be ready for the start of the regular season. The interest in having Robinson play guard at the outset is so his inexperience as a pass blocker won't be exposed early. Robinson acknowledged the work he needs as a pass blocker, and said, "There's a few things I need to work on. I look forward to working on that, taking it from the coaches and learning from other players." As for playing guard, Robinson said, "Whatever they ask, I'm willing to do. I will work hard to step in and help anywhere I can." - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - The strategy for the St. Louis Rams in the first round of this year's draft became clear when their two selections were made. "We needed to address both sides of the ball upfront," a smiling coach Jeff Fisher said. "You have to be physical in this division, and we accomplished that." They did it by picking Auburn tackle Greg Robinson with the second overall choice and then adding Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald 11 picks later. So intent were the Rams on upgrading the offensive line that they were prepared to trade with the Baltimore Ravens for the 17th pick in the first round, but that option disappeared when the Dallas Cowboys selected tackle Zack Martin. Said Fisher, "It would have been pricey but worth it." The Rams' next pick is in the second round, 44th overall. As it was, the Rams ended up with the 6-foot-5, 332-pound Robinson, who general manager Les Snead described as "a dancing bear, no doubt about it." Snead said the ability Robinson has to bend at that height is unusual. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Rams' picks: Round 1/2 - Greg Robinson, T, 6-5, 332, Auburn...He will likely begin as a guard as he gets comfortable with pass blocking and learning the angles, but the Rams expect him to be a long-time left tackle. Robinson is a crushing blocker in the running game, and the Rams love his passion for football. He blocked for running back Tre Mason, who was selected by the Rams in the third round. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 3/1. *Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn, 6-5, 332, 4.85, 1...Robinson is already an incredible force of nature. He is a beastly run blocker, but was not challenged to learn pro-type techniques in simplified Auburn offense. Still, raw ability was obvious in this quiet, respected team leader. Far from a finished product, but Robinson has the physical, mental and emotional ability to be one of the NFL's best. Pass protection may not be NFL-ready, so maybe he plays somewhere other than left tackle at first. Overcame rough, financially-challenged upbringing in family disrupted by Hurricane Katrina. Father died in 2012, grandmother remains dominant figure. Frankly: This kid has the OMG factor. He is still learning basics, let alone nuances, but already can overwhelm and humiliate talented defenders with his raw ability. His humble, hard-working approach should lead to huge success. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
05/06/14 - The Sports Xchange 2014 NFL Draft Best Team Fit: Atlanta Falcons...OT Greg Robinson, Auburn: The Falcons struggled projecting the passer and running the football. Robinson would give them a mauler who could start his career out at right tackle and switch over to the left side once his pass blocking is more refined. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
