At 6-foot-5 and 285 pounds, Greg Robinson certainly passes the eye test for an interior lineman. What makes him such an intriguing prospect, though, is his 4.8 to 4.9 speed and the fact that he’s only played on the offensive side of the ball for less than four months after playing defensive tackle his first two years at Thibodaux.
Robinson is quick off the ball and is quick to get to the second level. He is very raw and still learning the position and it shows when he gets to the second level as he sometimes struggles hitting smaller targets.
He is strong at the point of attack and his strength allows him to overpower blockers even when he doesn’t play with good leverage and plays too high. Add in a 3.2 grade point average and strong character and it’s easy to see why SEC schools are so high on Robinson.
Robinson has a high ceiling and once he adapts to playing on the offensive side of the ball and gets better technique he will flourish under head coach Dennis Lorio.
