No. 2 overall pick G/T Greg Robinson will come off the bench to begin the season.
Robinson was beaten out for right-guard duties by May signee Davin Joseph. Robinson is listed as the top backup to both LT Jake Long and LG Rodger Saffold. His bench status is rather embarrassing for a team that had many other needs, but decided to go with the "best player available" at No. 2 overall. Robinson should make starts at some point in 2014.

No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson will start at left guard in Saturday's third preseason game and then kick to left tackle once Jake Long departs.

Robinson has been pulling double duty all camp, working as the starting left guard and also getting time at his eventual position -- left tackle. He hasn't been good in the first two preseason games, giving up one sack, one quarterback hit and one quarterback hurry on just 66 snaps.

Rams signed No. 2 overall pick LG Greg Robinson to a four-year contract.

Although he was a mauling left tackle at Auburn, Robinson will begin his NFL career at left guard. HOFer Jonathan Ogden and longtime Colts LT Tarik Glenn both took the same early-career route. Robinson is eventually ticketed for the blindside in St. Louis, where Jake Long is a short-term fix. As a rookie, Robinson and Long will form a formidable left side for the Rams. 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 running lanes. We love Robinson's addition for the fantasy stock of Zac Stacy.

Bleacher Report's Dan Pompei confirms "the plan" is for No. 2 overall pick G/T Greg Robinson to begin his career at left guard.

That's where Robinson lined up in Thursday's OTAs session. LT Jake Long is still recovering from his torn ACL, but is expected to be ready for Week 1. Provided he's the player the Rams think he is, Robinson will undoubtedly eventually be shifted to tackle, but they want him to serve as a mauling guard for his rookie campaign.

Rams GM Les Snead says the team is "leaning" toward starting No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson at guard this season.

It's been the belief since the Rams drafted Robinson that he'd begin his career at left guard. The Ravens see him as a Jonathan Ogden type; Ogden spent his rookie year at left guard in Baltimore, before becoming a Hall of Fame left tackle. 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 Joe Barksdale.

Rams selected Auburn OL 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 will begin his rookie year at left guard, with Jake Long sticking on the blindside.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch believes the Rams won't draw much interest in the No. 2 overall pick if Jadeveon Clowney is already off the board.

Per reporter Jim Thomas, the team's trade options are "more likely at No. 13." The Rams have been draft weekend wheelers and dealers under Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead, so a move from No. 13 is quite possible. If the Rams do indeed sit tight at No. 2, Auburn OT Greg Robinson is their most-likely target. Robinson told ESPN there's a "good shot" he ends up in St. Louis.

Profootballtalk reports the Bills are "burning up the phone lines" trying to trade up from No. 9 overall to 1 or 2.

Per PFT's Mike Florio, the Bills are eyeing Jadeveon Clowney to bookend Mario Williams or Greg Robinson to solidify their offensive line. Considering the Bills were one of the most run-heavy teams in the league last season, going after a mauling run blocker like Robinson who has the potential to be Orlando Pace 2.0 in the long-term makes a ton of sense. Both the Texans and Rams at Nos. 1 and 2 overall, respectively, are believed to be interested in trading down.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen stated on NFL Insiders Tuesday that the Rams have "done their most work" on Auburn OT Greg Robinson and Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel.

Mortensen had a similar report Monday on the Browns. Cleveland and St. Louis seem to be focused on the same two players. Added Mort of the Johnny Football-to-Rams possibility, "If they take Manziel, they have a plan for him." Our guess is Manziel ends up in Cleveland and Robinson in St. Louis. The general feeling amongst media members is the Rams' interest in Manziel is a smokescreen intended to lure the Browns into trading up to draft him.
May 6 - 3:17 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen stated on NFL Insiders that he expects Auburn OT Greg Robinson or Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel to be the Browns' pick at No. 4 overall.

"I think the only two players they would consider at No. 4 are Greg Robinson and Johnny Manziel," were Mort's words. There have been whispers the Browns have Mike Evans ahead of Sammy Watkins on their draft board, but Mort doesn't believe they'd seriously consider either in the top-five picks. Our best guess is Manziel will end up in Cleveland, with Robinson as the fallback option.

SI's Peter King senses the Rams like Auburn OT Greg Robinson at No. 2 overall.

Meanwhile, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch believes the Rams are leaning toward Texas A&M OT Jake Matthews. Either way, it looks like they'll go Jadeveon Clowney (if he's surprisingly available), offensive tackle, or trade down. Robinson may not be as NFL-polished right now as Matthews, but his long-term ceiling and tape are freakish. He also played with Jeff Fisher's son at Auburn.

In a poll of 18 NFL scouts, Auburn's Greg Robinson received 11 votes as the 2014 draft's top offensive lineman.

Texas A&M's Jake Matthews came in second with six votes, and Notre Dame's Zack Martin received the final first-place vote. Based on combined "point" totals derived from voting in the poll, scouts ranked Robinson as the draft's top lineman (80 points), Matthews second (76), Michigan's Taylor Lewan a relatively distant third (48), Martin fourth (43), and Alabama's Cyrus Kouandjio fifth (11).

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Falcons could be eyeing Auburn OT Greg Robinson, and not Jadeveon Clowney, in a potential trade up to No. 1 overall.

Tackle is certainly a need for the Falcons, as incumbent LT Sam Baker was injured and ineffective in 2013. They have no one at right tackle. That being said, the Falcons' pass rush was among the most anemic in the league, while they've been much more strongly linked to Clowney. We still consider Clowney the most likely target if the Falcons make a bid for Houston's top selection.
May 1 - 4:39 PM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer expects the Browns to "strongly consider" taking Auburn OT Greg Robinson with the No. 4 overall pick in next month's draft.

The Browns have mostly been linked to quarterbacks, wide receivers, and cornerbacks in mock drafts, but they're reportedly unhappy with Mitchell Schwartz at right tackle. Using the fourth pick on an offensive tackle, especially a mauling run blocker like Robinson to plant opposite All-Pro LT Joe Thomas, is a real possibility. Robinson could go as high as No. 2 overall to the Rams.
Apr 20 - 10:03 AM

According to SI.com's Greg Bedard, Auburn LT Greg Robinson is most often compared to Orlando Pace "in league circles" for his physicality as a run blocker.

Robinson is not nearly as pro-ready a pass blocker as Pace was coming out of Ohio State, but his size-athleticism combo is on par with or even superior to the future Hall of Famer. Despite that massive upside, there is a growing groundswell for St. Louis to bypass Robinson in favor of Texas A&M LT Jake Matthews at No. 2 overall. Matthews is viewed as the "safer" tackle prospect.
