Greg Robinson has been selected with the second overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft and will play his football for the St Louis Rams next season.

The former Auburn Tigers man reached the BCS National Championship game last year, but his teams loss against a Jameis Winston-led Florida State Seminoles didn't hurt his draft stock in becoming runners up.

Robinson was the top rated tackle in the draft for a reason, the 21-year old has an exceptional combination of size and speed for the position. He actually was the quickest offensive tackle at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis with a 4.92 40-yard dash time, incredible for a man that weighs 330 lbs.He also lead the way out of all the big boys in the broad jump with a leap of 113 inches.

In 2013, Robinson started all 14 games at left tackle to go along with the 12 he made in 2012, where he was rested for the one game he didn't appear in.

Robinson's long arms and top technique make him an excellent run blocker and one that will be a solid starter right from the get-go.

He was considered to be the safest pick in the whole of the draft, and is expected to have a great career in the NFL along with fellow left tackles Jake Matthews from Texas A&M and Taylor Lewan out of Michigan.
