A talented all-round O-tackle: can be hard to handle off the snap. A powerhouse run-blocker with the size to manhandle most defenders, and the foot-speed to get out to the second level. Can be devastating on pulls, laying the body to clear running lanes. Also has good lateral mobility for pass protection.
Still learning how to use his physical gifts to be a quality pass protector. Needs improvement on reading speedy rushers coming off the edge. Must continue working on his hand technique, and on adjusting in space when plays break down.
Top-tier offensive tackle prospect.

Although he was a mauling tackle for Auburn, Robinson will begin his NFL career at left guard. He's still eventually ticketed for the blindside. As a rookie, Robinson will form a formidable left side for the Rams with LT Jake Long. A sensational athlete for his size (6-foot-5, 332 pounds), Robinson doesn't turn 22 until October. He's a massive, powerful human who is ready to clear alleys in the pros.

It's been the belief since the Rams drafted Robinson that he'd begin his career at left guard. With Robinson in the fold, the Rams' offensive line shakes out as: LT Jake Long, LG Robinson, C Scott Wells, RG Rodger Saffold and RT Joseph Barksdale.
Rams take mauling OT Greg Robinson at No. 2 | 05/08/2014 8:22 PM
Rams selected Auburn OT Greg Robinson with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
It's the right pick for a team that was also strongly linked to Texas A&M OT Jake Matthews. Robinson (6-foot-5, 332) won't turn 22 until October after leaving Auburn as a redshirt sophomore. He made 25 starts at left tackle for the Tigers, blocking out the sun for the nation's top rushing offense. A sensational athlete for his size, Robinson ran 4.92 at the Combine with a 9-foot-5 broad jump and did 32 bench-press reps despite vine-like 35-inch arms. A massive, powerful human who is ready to clear alleys in the pros, Robinson is a work in progress as a pass protector, but has every tool needed to succeed. He's likely to begin his rookie year at left guard with Jake Long sticking on the blindside and Rodger Saffold manning right tackle.
