-- The meteoric risemay take him all the way to the most coveted spots in the draft.Auburn's third-year sophomore "could be the first left tackle taken,", who has moved Robinson up to No. 4 on his Big Board after the bowl games.Robinson's power at the point of attack, in addition to his mobility, makes him a candidate to challenge Texas A M's Jake Matthews (No. 3 on Big Board) and Michigan's Taylor Lewan (No. 11) for the top tackle spot in the draft, which almost always becomes a top-five pick."He moves really well, can get out in the run game and block in space. ... but does so with a powerful lower half that makes him tough to push backward, too; he has long arms and delivers a solid punch," Kiper wrote. "He gets a good push in the run game and can get out in front. Could become a special player at tackle."During the offseason, Robinson improved his strength, becoming an explosive blocker who excels at getting to the second level and led the Tigers in knockdown blocks, prompting teammates to say that Robinson puts some highlight-reel blocks on film."My lower body is really strong, just from working with Coach Russell and his staff," Robinson said last week. "I have a good set of legs, though. Really, it's once I make contact, just moving my feet."by the New York Giants in its most recent mock draft, another sign that the tackle has a chance at rising to the top of the draft.As a third-year sophomore, Robinson's first public chance to impress NFL scouts will be at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
