Scouting Report
Teams at the top of the draft eyeing a long-term fix at left tackle are unlikely to look further than Robinson, and the Auburn product did nothing but back that up at the NFL combine. A third-year sophomore, Robinson entered 2013 seen more as a 2015 prospect, but an exceptional season blocking for Tre Mason and the Tigers' run-first offense combined with some head-turning athleticism displayed at the combine now has him in the discussion as one of the top talents in the draft. Robinson's 4.92-second 40-yard dash time and 113-inch broad jump ranked him among the top performers while he had 32 reps in the bench press. His 35-inch arm length fits the mold along with the rest of his body type to lead teams to believe he's capable of becoming a premiere NFL tackle. About the only substantial knock on Robinson is he's coming from a program that committed very heavily to the run, leaving some scouts to question whether his pass protection has reached proper levels expected of a top-five pick, particularly with blitz awareness, the use of his hands and his footwork. Robinson, a third-team All-American, started all 14 games for the Tigers as they rode the nation's top rushing offense (328.3 yards per game) to the national title game. After redshirting in 2011, Robinson started 11 of 12 games for Auburn in 2012 after playing on the defensive side of the ball until his junior year in high school.
