Scouting Report The consensus #1 lineman in the country in this class, Robinson is a prototype left tackle. He understands positioning, space, and angles' In pass protection, he sits down and doesn't overextend himself. He maintains his balance and can quickly adjust.
And he moves extremely well when run blocking, showing the ability to bend, play low to high, and redirect. He has good leg drive, plenty of strength, and a solid punch.
runtheoption22's Take Cam is as solid as one can hope a true freshman to be as a LT. Yes, there are question marks surrounding his pass blocking, but for 99.9% of 18 year olds, that is the case. LIttle doubt remains in the run blocking category. He runs well, moves well, and seems to be an intuitive guy. Spring helped him tremendously, though it didnt always look pretty.
WMack4Bama's Take Alabama is going to be breaking in a first time starter at QB this season. Perhaps no position is as important as a blindside tackle. And Coach Saban has entrusted that to a TRUE FRESHMAN. That should tell you all you need to know. If it doesn't, press play on the video above. It's a real life version of the football scenes from The Blind Side.
There has been talk about him struggling throughout camp, and he wasn't as dominant in the spring game, but we're talking about an 18 year old kid who spent the entire spring and summer going up against the absolute best defensive linemen in the country. Iron sharpens iron. Robinson is first team All-SEC as a true freshman, and he's a top 5 NFL draft pick in 2017. Bank it.
