NFL Draft’s Potential Patriots: Auburn OT Greg Robinson

WEEI.com will continue to offer daily insight and analysis regarding options that may be available to the Patriots when it comes to the 2014 NFL draft. Here is one in a series of profiles of players who could be on the board when it’€™s time for the Patriots to make a selection.

GREG ROBINSON

Position: Offensive tackle

School: Auburn

Height: 6-foot-5

Weight: 320 pounds

Achievements: 2013 first-team All-SEC (Associated Press)

What he brings: Robinson has the ideal frame for a NFL offensive lineman. Scouts say that he has good control of his size and is a dominant run-blocker. They add, however, that his limited experience — two years as a starter at Auburn and four years on the offensive line — are slight weaknesses.

Where the Patriots could get him: Robinson is likely a top-10 pick, so the Patriots would need to trade up to get him.

Notes: Robinson redshirted his freshman year at Auburn before starting 11 games in 2012 and earning a sport on the SEC honor roll. During the 2012 season he was part of an offensive unit that allowed 37 sacks, the worst in the league. Along with the rest of the offense, he improved after offensive line coach J.B. Grimes joined the staff.
