NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Report: Cam Robinson, OL, Alabama
- Cam Robinson, OT. Alabama
- Height: 6’6″
- Weight: 322 lbs
- Hometown: Monroe, LA
Pros: Proficient in the run game. Shows a great initial punch and upper body strength to attack lineman. Keeps a wide frame and uses inside hands to control the defender. Deadly when he gets leverage on a pass rusher. Shows the ability to run block at the second level, gives a strong punch with his upper body with whoever he comes in contact with. Sustains blocks, has a very good grip and doesn’t hold up. Went up against very good competition, showed well against Myles Garrett. Fires off the ball with great force. Has a very good frame for an offensive tackle.
Overall: Quite possibly one of the best at run blocking. However, he lacks technique in numerous areas in the passing attack. Powerful, but also at a cost. He has solid pass protection, but that may not go over well in the NFL; probably better at guard than tackle. He’s a force to reckon with in the run game and has little flaws in that aspect. Robinson will have to do better with the lower half of him. He’s benefitting from a weak offensive tackle class. If he were even in last year’s class, he’s probably a 2nd rounder. If there’s a run first team, he’s a great tackle. But if you have a pocket that relies on holding blocks for a decent amount of time, he will give up pressure. He has potential, won’t lie. But his pass protection is not worth a top 15 pick.
