    Matthews, Lewan, Irving, Robinson, and Antonio Richardson are more than likely. Cyrus Kuandijo despite a rough year is probably in as well if he declares. Then you have guys like Zack Martin, Cyril Richardson, La'el Collins (if he declares), Gabe Jackson, Xavier Su'a-Filo (if he declares), and David Yankey who all could grade near round 1

    Ok. I read your other post as only 2 linemen in the first. My bad.

    I believe Greg Robinson is the best offensive tackle in this class. He'll be the #1 offensive tackle on my board if he declares. He's not far from being the #1 prospect on my board. I don't think people realize exactly how good of a player he is. This is a rare talent. He's only scratching the surface of what he'll be. He's literally perfect in his run blocking in my opinion.... as a redshirt sophomore. Dominant player.

    He's a little raw in pass protection, but this is also only his 4th year playing offensive line going back to his Junior year of high school. He's a defensive line convert... just like Cameron Erving of Florida St. He started last year for Auburn as a redshirt freshman at left tackle all season.

    He's not asked to pass protect much in Auburn's offense, but the upside is evident to me. I've only seen him give up one sack all season and that was to Adrian Hubbard against Alabama. Although he's not asked to pass protect as much as some other tackles, I think he displays extremely good lower body flexibility and technique in his deep set.

    There's no doubt in my mind that he's the best pure run blocker at his position that I've seen in college football. He plays with tremendous pad level and aggressive getting into a defender's body and driving them off the football. Just over and over and over again. I watch him down block defenders clean to the ground. It's pretty much routine, and I'm talking about good players he does this to. I watched him drive Jeoffrey Pagan 5 yards off the line of scrimmage on Nick Marshall's 45 yard TD run against Bama.

    All he needs are reps in pass protection to polish up. The athleticism and talent is there. He's not as polished as Jake Matthews in his pass sets as far as technique, because he's not asked to do it 40 times a game the way Matthews is. I watched Jake Matthews get worked over against Auburn (Dee Ford)....giving up pressure.... sacks on 3rd down, etc.

    I've long been a buyer on Greg Robinson. I see it with my own eyes.

    Greg was supposed to come to Alabama. We recruited him hard. Unfortunately, he didn't sign because we managed to give Arie Kouandjio a scholarship as part of a package deal to get Cyrus.... and Arie has a long ways to go. Struggles a lot in pass protection and with penalties. I think some of that is why Cyrus has struggled this year also.... trying to help out little brother next to him. Arie isn't exactly Chance Warmack.....

    I have him #8 overall here: http://www.finheaven.com/showthread....g-board-top-32

    I think he might even project better as a LG than LT. Not because he is a liability in pass pro, but because he is such a dominant run blocker.

    He reminds me of a more athletic Marcus McNeill or Kendall Simmons coming out of Auburn. Simmons was also a former defensive line convert. He looks a lot like both wearing their old number too.

    Robinson is much better than they were at a similar stage in their careers though.

    My concern is that he is slow in pass pro and susceptible to ordinary speed rush. If he played at any other program I'd say he'd benefit from staying in school one more year, but not at Auburn.

    what do you think of projection to guard? Like I said I have him at #8 now, I think he is a really, really good tackle, but I think he could be an even better guard. Just my opinion.
