Rams meet with Greg Robinson at Auburn pro day

Joe Robbins

The Rams sent a very special envoy to chat with a potential first-round pick.

It's no secret that the St. Louis Rams are doing their homework on Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson. He's the most frequent choice for the team in mock draft across the internet, and it lines up nicely with the report that the team conducted a formal interview with him at the Combine. On Tuesday, the Rams took another opportunity to meet with Robinson at Auburn's pro day.

Robinson actually stood on his Combine numbers. He ran a 4.92 in the 40, benced 32 reps of 225 pounds, had a 113 inch broad jump and stood out in almost every other drill as well.

The thinking on Robinson is that he's the most talented tackle in the draft, at least the one with the highest ceiling. Most think he can start right away on the right side, given his impressive run blocking, and develop as a pass blocker before taking over as a franchise left tackle. That actually would work well for the Rams, who could let Robinson learn this year, and then jettison Jake Long and his contract in 2015 ... or even wait until 2016.
