How good was Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson?
Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com called him the most dominating player on the field:
Robinson was the most dominating player on the Rose Bowl field. In the run game, he has a lethal combination of quickness, strength and agility. He cleaned up FSU safety Terrance Brooks with a monster shot on Tre Mason's touchdown catch in the first quarter. He repeatedly collapsed his opponent on down blocks and created huge running lanes for Mason.
In pass protection, he has very quick feet and strong hands. He was called for one holding penalty, but he was otherwise pretty flawless on the big stage. He's as talented as any blocker in college football.
Jeremiah's analysis wasn't an exaggeration. The 6'5", 320-pound redshirt sophomore was a force to be reckoned with, and now he's left with a tough choice.
Robinson is a likely first-round pick if he goes, but he said after Monday night that the loss will make the decision tougher, per Joel Erickson, AL.com:
I wanted this win, just to leave Auburn on a positive note. The loss made the decision harder, but at the end of the day, I'm going to do what's best for me and my family.
I haven't made a decision, but I'll be making one real soon, before the deadline.
Even after the loss, don't be surprised if the NFL-ready blocker takes his skills to the next level.
