Summary:Robinson has been a fixture of Alabama's stalwart offensive line since coming on the scene as a freshman. Robinson was named a consensus All-American in 2016.

According to his draft profile, Robinson has the physical build of a successful tackle and possesses the ability for lateral movement on the line. He generates "early power and push" against opponents and has good initial quickness.

"Robinson has tape galore against SEC edge talent either playing in the NFL or who soon will be," said analyst Lance Zierlein. "The tape shows a player with the traits and physical ability to be a good NFL tackle, but his balance issues and inconsistencies as a pass protector are a concern. Robinson is a candidate to be overdrafted due to the position he plays and his size, but buyer beware as some of his deficiencies might not be easily correctable."

Stacking up: NFL Media Bucky Brooks ranked Robinson as the top tackle in this year's draft class. Brooks' counterpart Mike Mayock, however, listed Robinson at No. 2 in his list of interior linemen rather than in the tackle group. 

Highly respected:Robinson played at West Monroe High School in Louisiana and was the top-rated offensive tackle in the nation. He received ample scholarship offers and ended up selecting Alabama over schools that included Arkansas, Auburn, LSU and Michigan.
