    His 40 was impressive. He looks like a big piece of power.

    Its not so much his 40 time that impressed me. He ran like an athlete and he is sculpted for such a huge man. I expected him to look a little sloppy like alot of these OLinemen today. Nope.

    Just disrespectful, lol. Comparing Robinson to Smith is just nonsense, Robinson trumps Smith by a mile in almost every single area.

    HaHa take it easy on me guys! I'm still dismayed about Mr. Smith! Anyways, as I see it and remember from the draft JS was drafted in if you remember what were the things they said about him? He is a ' nasty run blocker ' but needs to improve on his pass blocking. Honestly, just scares me! haha

    It'll be interesting to see how he turns out but I'm wary of him TBO. I wont lie thought, I like watching him on tape mowing over people in the run game! lol

    Rather have us a More polished prospect like a Matthews...

    Now you can see why at least one NFL insider said this guy "has feet like a CB." He still needs to get his footwork squared away for pass blocking, but, if the Horns select him, we already have the perfect OL guru in Coach Bou.

    First one I've found
    http://walterfootball.com/pro2009jsmith.php

    Strengths: Solid height for the position ... Very athletic ... Quick kick step in pass protection ... Rarely gets beat off the edge by speed ... Nice hand punch (strong hands) ... Footwork is on an elite level ... Smart and knows how to pick up the blitz ... Tough ... Minimizes penalties ... Doesn't have lapses in concentration ... Ability to play left tackle and kick inside at guard in zone blocking schemes.

    Weaknesses: Slender build will have to be evaluated at weigh-ins ... Doesn't show consistency in run blocking ... Not very powerful when playing against bigger defensive ends ... Short arms? ... Doesn't always finish blocks ... Doesn't have a nasty demeanor.

    Summary: Valuable prospect because he can play left tackle. Likely first rounder, but will have to show more toughness at the Senior Bowl.

    Player Comparison: Sam Baker. Similar build (about 6'5, 305) and both were projected as far better pass protecters than run blockers, with questionable toughness.

    He wows with his 40 yard dash too! He runs an official 4.92 40 yard dash!

    Not that this really means he'll be a good football player... But that's impressive! That talent level really is there...

    Forgive me! Looks like Rams and Gators corrected me on another thread that it was his run blocking in question not the opposite. I'll shuddup now! lol

    Greg Robinson has the speed to go with his strength

    Posted by Darin Gantt on February 22, 2014

    There won’t be many times in his NFL career when Auburn tackle Greg Robinson needs to run 40 yards.

    But just in case, he’s going to be able to do it swiftly.

    Robinson continued an impressive weekend of measurements and workouts, by running his first 40-yard dash in a blazing 4.88 seconds, then topping it with a 4.84 on his second attempt.

    Consider that he’s a 6-foot-5, 332-pound man, and that’s remarkable, and part of the reason he’s expected to be a top-10 pick.

    But Robinson has also impressed in the other measurables, with 32 repetitions of the 225-pound bench press. That feat is made more impressive by the fact he has 35-inch long arms, and the longer your arms are, the harder is it to move heavy things often.

    It’s an impressive physical display for a guy who plays one of the premium positions, and will merit much more attention from teams jockeying around the top of the draft.

    To me, it's like Chris Long vs Robert Quinn. One guy has all the production, really smooth player, technician at the position, but doesn't have that huge potential. The other guy is a little rawer, started a limited amount of games in comparison, but his potential to dominate is absolutely off the charts.

    Tayler Lewan is having the best workout in terms of numbers,but to see a guy the size of Robinson do what he's doing today is impressive. He's a strong athlete.

    Thanks for posting this. BMI & Body Fat % are not the same. Not sure why there was any confusion.

    When you talk about two guys having similar numbers but the second guy has 30 lbs on him, it's pretty clear who the better athlete is. Does that mean he's the better football player? Absolutely not, but in this case the tape tells the same story.
