After a film study of Auburn T Greg Robinson and Texas A&M T Jake Matthews, Monday Morning Quarterback's Greg A. Bedard concluded that Robinson is the best OT prospect in the draft.
Bedard mentions that Robinson is most often compared to Orlando Pace in NFL circles because of his physical style in run blocking. "Robinson has all the tools and has shown the potential in the pass game; if teams feel he can learn and work at his craft, then Robinson could be an all-time great," Bedard wrote. "It’s a question of how long that will take, and where do you play him in the interim (Robinson would be a devastating left guard for a year or two)." Meanwhile, the writer loves Matthews' positional versatility, writing that he "could play any position on the line, including center (not to mention he has long-snapping experience)." In conclusion: "Matthews is better today, but Robinson’s vast potential shouldn’t be hard to unlock. That makes Robinson my pick as the top tackle prospect in this draft." Apr 8 - 7:33 PM

St. Louis Rams general manager Les Snead, who holds the Nos. 2 and 13 overall picks, has already talked about trade possibilities with "multiple teams."

"We have had some conversations with multiple teams," Snead said on Sunday night. "They’re more flirtatious calls than anything. We have numbers 2 and 13, but Houston has number one. Nobody can really seriously chat with us until they are happy with at least two players. I think what might happen as we get closer to the draft, maybe it comes to fruition what Houston is going to do, maybe it doesn’t, you have more serious talks probably the week of the draft going, ‘Hey, if our player is there at 2, this is what we’re going to offer.’ I think it will get more serious." Snead famously traded the second overall pick to Washington in the 2012 Robert Griffin III trade, receiving first-round picks in '12, ’13 and ’14 and a second-round pick in ’12, so he's got plenty of experience holding an auction.

An NFC scout told NJ.com that Auburn T Greg Robinson is a "phenomenal" prospect.

"In my opinion, he’s the best [OT]," the scout said. "He should go very high." The site quoted two other evaluators who were also smitten with Robinson. An NFC personnel man said: "He just mashes you. From a pure talent standpoint, I think he’s the best." And finally, an AFC executive added: "He’s enormous, but he’s light on his feet. He’ll anchor himself and just stone you."

Auburn T Greg Robinson is visiting the Rams on Wednesday, according to CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler.

Robinson is absolutely in play at No. 2 overall. It is noteworthy that general manager Les Snead is attending Jadeveon Clowney's pro day on Wednesday, the same time as this visit, but do not read into it too much. If the team does select Robinson, he could play left guard or right tackle early on, if the rams want to keep Jake Long at left tackle.

Despite employing LT Joe Thomas, Cleveland head coach Mike Pettine said the club will consider Auburn T Greg Robinson with the No. 4 pick.

"Outstanding tackle," Pettine said of the Tigers' athletic marvel. "He's a player that has all the measurables. The nice thing that you like about him is the toughness. He's a finisher. He's going to knock you down and he's not going to help you up. I know he's played (guard). If you look at (former Raven) Jonathan Ogden, he was a guard his first year in the NFL and then he ended up transitioning out to tackle. A lot of people don't realize that." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler suggested a Browns-Robinson marriage earlier this week, writing that RT Mitchell Schwartz is better suited to play inside and is a liability on the edge. "(Even if you) have Joe Thomas on the roster at left tackle, you don't want to say we're not going to take him because we have one," Pettine said. "(If) you take a great linemen, especially one that's played other spots, you can put him on the right, you can put him at guard."

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Auburn T Greg Robinson has "tremendous upside."

Robinson has been the most popular fit for the Rams at No. 2 in industry mock drafts. "He’s young. I believe he’s got tremendous upside," Fisher said. "Probably has not taken as many snaps in a pro-style offense as [Taylor] Lewan, the Michigan tackle. But he’s very athletic and he has flexibility — he could move in, play guard or the other tackle as well. Probably gonna take him a little more time." It's an honest assessment that has been echoed recently by both NFL Films' Greg Cosell and Rotoworld's Josh Norris: Robinson isn't close to being a finished project. With the Rams being so close to the playoffs, one wonders if Fisher and company will surprise and take a player who guarantees supreme 2014 production. It's worth noting that the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that St. Louis has shown "strong interest" in Texas A&M OT Jake Matthews; Fisher coached Jake's father, Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell believes Auburn T Greg Robinson has a long way to go to become a finished product.

"I think he has a ton of potential as a road grading, run blocking offensive tackle," Cosell began. "I think he is a work in progress in pass protection... there would be questions, not concerns, on how he would pass protect on an island against edge speed." Our own Josh Norris has shared these same questions, since Robinson frequently was asked to block inside or double team in pass protection sets.

The Falcons are willing to trade up from the No. 6 pick in May's draft, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

This isn't necessarily breaking news, as GM Thomas Dimitroff alluded to similar intentions at the Combine. The Falcons, who famously swapped five picks to the Browns in 2011 in order to ascend 21 spots to pluck WR Julio Jones with the No. 6 pick, are the first known team with a desire to move up. It seems probable that South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney is the object of Dimitroff's desire, though a porous offensive line could certainly use Auburn OT Greg Robinson.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Auburn T Greg Robinson could be an option for the Browns at No. 4.

Brugler points at right tackle Mitchell Schwartz is better suited to play inside and is a liability on the edge. Robinson would be the "best player available at a spot of need," Brugler tweeted. The mauling tackle has a chance to be the No. 2 overall pick for the Rams, but this might give the Browns the best tandem of tackles in the league.
Mar 24 - 10:12 AM

"Word around the league" at UCF's pro day is that the Rams are continuing to "actively" shop the No. 2 overall pick, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

This is nothing new, as even general manager Les Snead has confirmed publicly that the team is willing to trade the pick. If the Rams are able to trade the selection, two outcomes are likely: 1) A team is wanting to move up for their favorite quarterback, or 2) Jadeveon Clowney is still available. These types of deals are made ahead of time, so expect to hear if the pick has been traded prior to draft day.

NFL.com's Charles Davis believes it's a myth that Auburn's Greg Robinson is clearly superior to the draft's other top-tier tackles, Jake Matthews and Taylor Lewan.

Robinson has catapulted up draft boards due to his supreme athleticism and his importance in Auburn's offensive attack, but Davis cautions against those that are ready to crown him the draft's top OT two months before the big day. "You have to take into account that Auburn was a spread-style running team," wrote Davis. "He was a mauler, but he's moving into a passing league. So, he still has something prove as a pass protector. Given his athleticism, it's expected that he'll be just fine in that area, but there's not the volume of tape to review that there is with Lewan and Matthews. So, is Robinson clearly better? Matthews been doing this for a long time and I think before the draft process started, he was considered the top left tackle in the draft. He had a good combine. Lewan is a four-year starter and he put on a very impressive show at the combine. The consensus pecking order could still change in this race."

Despite having re-signed OT Roger Saffold, ESPN's Mel Kiper still believes St. Louis will tab an offensive tackle with the No. 2 pick.

In his most recent mock, citing starting OTs Jake Long and Saffold's health concerns, Kiper assigns the Rams Auburn's Greg Robinson. "The Rams can't afford to be thin up front in 2014," wrote Kiper. "I think this is an obvious spot where a trade could happen, but if you have the chance to draft a potential star at tackle in the same year you need to find out if the QB you've paid a lot of money is worth it, you may not want to overthink it. Robinson can be a special player, and the Rams would improve up front with him around, starting in Week 1."

Joe Thomas "is the ideal comparison" for Auburn T Greg Robinson, believes NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.

"The seven-time Pro Bowler has become the gold standard at the position, exhibiting exceptional technical skills and athleticism while dominating defenders on the edge," Brooks wrote. "Robinson must perform well from Day 1 to merit this comparison to Thomas, who has set the pace at the position." Brooks' computer used in his "Man vs. Machine" scouting series listed Thomas as a comparable for Robinson based on measurements and test scores, though Robinson actually graded out a bit better in every category except for height. "Although Robinson's rare athleticism stood out on tape, it was his spectacular performance at the Combine that convinced most evaluators in the football community that he has the talent to develop into one of the top players at the position as a pro," Brooks wrote.

Auburn T Greg Robinson slots No. 6 to the Falcons in Scout Inc.'s Todd McShay's mock draft.

"Short of Clowney falling to them at No. 6, which isn't going to happen, this is the scenario that would make the Falcons decision-makers happiest," McShay wrote. "Robinson is one of the four elite prospects in this year's class (along with Clowney, Watkins and Buffalo's Khalil Mack), and he's the most dominating offensive lineman at the point of attack that I've ever evaluated. He also has tremendous athleticism for his size, giving him the ability to hold his own in pass protection right away and the potential to be an excellent pass blocker over time." Sitting at No. 6 without a QB need, Atlanta is in a great spot; a can't-miss prospect is destined to drop into their laps.

NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock mentioned on "NFL AM" that it "wouldn't surprise him" to see Auburn T Greg Robinson land with the Rams at No.2.

"From my perspective, if he went to St. Louis at No. 2 overall, it wouldn't surprise me at all," Mayock said on "NFL AM" on Friday. Like Mike Mayock and NFL Films' Greg Cosell, our own Josh Norris echoes the same thoughts on Robinson landing with the Rams. However, Norris feels the Rams could trade back and still potentially land Greg Robinson if the Texans pass on Jadeveon Clowney at No.1. The Rams have Chris Long and Robert Quinn in the mix and could trade the No.2 pick to a team desperate to move up.
