With the second overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Los Angeles Rams selected Greg Robinson, an offensive tackle out of Auburn. It was thought that Robinson could be the premier franchise left tackle that the team had been missing since Orlando Pace.
The problem is, that didnt turn out to be the case. In fact, after two years, it could be argued that Greg Robinson has turned out to be a bust. He’s already allowed double-digit sacks in his career and he finished 2015 tied for the third-most penalties in the NFL.
He’s spent time at guard and at tackle and just hasn’t been able to figure out the NFL despite having all the physical tools and athleticism. It was said that Robinson was raw coming out of Auburn playing in a spread offense, but at this point, its beginning to figure that he will never be able to figure it out.
After two disappointing seasons, Robinson is putting in work this offseason to try and take that next step. Robinson has been going to LeCharles Bentley‘s famous offensive lineman camp. The camp has helped offensive linemen such as as helped a whole bunch of linemen like Alex Boone, Larry Warford, Chance Warmack, Geoff Schwartz, and Willie Colon and more get their game up to speed.
Well now Bentley is helping Robinson get his game up to speed. Lifting, kick-step drills, and pushing cars are just a few things that Robinson has been doing with Bentley.
While this helps Robinson on they physical side of things, it has never bee the physical things that Robinson has struggled with, that has never been the concern. The concern has been Robinson’s ability to grasp offensive concepts and pass blocking schemes.
Working with Bentley certainly can’t hurt, but only time will tell if it will help.
