    Auburn’s red-shirt sophomore left tackle Greg Robinson has been getting a lot of love recently. The large blocker has really elevated his game this season and is starting to transfer his size and athleticism into full time football skill. He’s far from the finished prospect but still a terrific prospect with potential for greatness. Robinson and Auburn face an NFL type of defense on Saturday, both on the schematic and personal front. Alabama coach Nick Saban will throw numerous looks which Robinson must immediately recognize or he’ll get beat by a bevy of top 75 talent in the Tide’s front seven. The game is equally a challenge for Xzavier Dickson, Adrian Hubbard, Ed Stinson and Jeoffrey Pagan of the Tide; all gifted next level prospects who’ve put up pedestrian stats this season.

    Kiper loves this guy. Usually I take guys he likes with a grain of salt. I think he is right. This guy will be a stud at the next level.

    CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman has heard Auburn redshirt sophomore LT Greg Robinson could be a top 15 selection.
    Feldman adds Robinson's stock is "really rising" in the NFL scouting world thanks to his size, athleticism, and nasty attitude. Robinson is an odd evaluation, since the Auburn offense implements plenty of crash down blocks and keeps individual matchups on the edge to a minimum. Those plays where Robinson gets no help on an island in pass rushing situations will need to be spotlighted. Dec 7 - 11:43 AM

    Greg Robinson/T/ Auburn: Greg Robinson has used this season to put himself on the map and has a legitimate chance to move into the early part of the first round. He features a rare combination of size and athleticism. Robinson is the type of player who’ll consistently generate a push off the line of scrimmage. The most attractive part of Robinson’s game is his versatility—especially in the run game. He’s not just a road-grader who relies on his size and strength, as he also has the quickness off the ball to cross the face of the defender and seal. This makes him a fit for either a zone or power blocking scheme. My main concern surrounding Robinson is his lack of experience protecting the quarterback. Auburn is a run heavy team and when they do pass it’s rarely in a conventional fashion. Robinson shows the quickness, balance and bend needed to hold up in pass protection. However, this is still part of his game that’s very raw. 1st Round

    Scheme, however, only gets you so far in the SEC. Robinson provided the size, power and athleticism to complement his coach's planning and Mason's running.

    Possessing nearly a 60-pound weight advantage over Missouri's starting defensive ends, the 6-foot-5, 320-pound left tackle dominated at the point of attack.

    While perhaps a bit high off the snap, Robinson is as powerful in the running game as any offensive tackle I've scouted all year long. His long arms give him an almost unfair reach advantage and he latches on with great placement and strength to sustain his blocks.

    Scouts love offensive linemen who play angry and that is precisely what Robinson does, showing the nastiness to drive his target into the turf on multiple occasions. His key block of Missouri linebacker Donovan Bonner on 4th and goal in the fourth quarter showed off Robinson's power and aggression.

    As he did on multiple occasions in this contest, Robinson blocked down from his left tackle position, sliding into the middle of the line to take on Missouri's linebacker. Bonner, 6-foot-1 and 245 pounds, did a nice job of initially holding up but was ultimately bowled over. Robinson continued to block after his target was down, pulling Bonner aside actually to give Foster the lane through which he burrowed through for his third touchdown of the game.

    OLine looks really good in this draft. There seem to be a lot of guys with both power and athleticism in this draft at both Guard and OT.

    07:37 AM ET 12.10 | Avery Young is no slouch himself, but he says left tackle Greg Robinson is in a different world. The mountain of a man who anchors the left side of Auburn's offensive line stands 6-foot-5, tips the scales at more than 320 pounds and can supposedly do back flips. [Young calls Robinson] one of the most athletic linemen he's ever seen, and Young's older brother, Willie, is a defensive end with the Detroit Lions. "Greg's a beast," Young said. ... ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper has moved Robinson up to No. 14 on his Big Board, an indicator that Robinson could have a shot at top-10 status if he decides to enter the draft in April. "I've really been putting it off," Robinson said. "I've just been talking to my family about it, it's a big thing. But I haven't made a decision yet. I haven't had time."

    Honestly I do see some Larry Allen in this guy.

    It will be interesting to see if they try to get value along the DLine or Oline in this draft. I honestly think they are going to trade down again. This is another good year to have 3 picks in the first two rounds.

    Jeremiah: AUB T Robinson is a special player
    [IMG]
    NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah believes Auburn redshirt sophomore T Greg Robinson is the second best player in the BCS National Championship game.

    The top prospect is obviously Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston, but he is not draft-eligible. Jeremiah calls Robinson a special player due to his smooth and easy movements, which helps him dominate in the passing and running game. "As a run blocker, he has very quick feet, strong hands and a powerful base," Jeremiah writes. "He can move defenders at the point of attack, and he's very fluid to adjust at the second level." We would like to see a highlight of Robinson working on an island in pass rushing situations, since many of his blocks are double teams in the running game.

    Doubt he falls to the teens where Dallas drafts but I'd be all over him if he did. I seriously see some Larry Allen to his game.

    There could be a really good OT available at the Cowboys pick. If one of the last 3 in this list falls to the Cowboys, they would have to take him, IMO. They all have the build and power to also play Guard if that was a bigger need initially. Flozell played Guard his rookie season.

    I am leaning that direction also with the Dline talent being ordinary in the first rd, I could see this making some sense. I feel confident Matthews does not get close to our pick. Worst we could be is 7 wins 9 loses I see Jake Matthews going in top ten and maybe only one maybe two Dlineman in the first rd.
    QB's and CB's look healthy this year.

    One NFL scout believes Auburn redshirt sophomore T Greg Robinson will be a top 10, top 15 pick "easy" if he declares for the draft.
    "He's a stud," one scout told Packers' beat writer Bob McGinn. "Left tackle. You're talking about a ton of athleticism, size, strength. He's not getting a lot of attention because people don't realize he's a redshirt. Not quite sure why (Gene) Chizik redshirted him. I think that was a big mistake." Robinson will be the focus of many evaluators in the National Championship Game, but pay particular attention to one on one pass protection blocks on the edge. Dec 22 - 10:20 AM

    Greg Robinson - T - Tigers
    Auburn redshirt sophomore T Greg Robinson told ESPN's Joe Schad he received a first-round projection from the NFL Draft Advisory Board.

    Robinson "doesn't want to hurt his teammates but said helping Mom is big factor," Schad added. The massive left tackle is a bully in the running game and has the athleticism and punch power to succeed in pass protection. He is a likely top-15 selection.

    As bad as they need D Line help, I'd love to get this guy but I think he puts on a major show at the combine.
