Cam Robinson was drafted in second round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Jaguars, but was expected to learn behind veteran left tackle Branden Albert or kick inside to guard during his rookie year. Due to an untimely retirement from Albert, Robinson was forced into the starting lineup at left tackle as a rookie. Robinson played well, at times, but an ankle injury slowed his progress as a rookie. For a rookie that was forced into a bad situation Robinson certainly didn't play poorly, but in order to warrant the second round pick that the Jaguars used to acquire him he needs to improve in year two.
It appears that he's on track to do just that.
Cam Robinson had an excellent offseason program and by the looks of it added some considerable mass to his upper body between year one and year two. Already a fluid athlete at the left tackle position, the added strength should help him set the edge in pass protection and plow through defenders as a run blocker.
So far in training camp Robinson appears to be one of the most improved players on the team and has held his own against and even embarrassed some of the Jaguars defensive lineman.
In one-on-one drills Robinson has man handled rookie defensive lineman Taven Bryan multiple times. But Bryan isn't the only one that Robinson is getting the best of. He's also bested the Jaguars two most potent pass rushers, Yannick Ngakoue and Calais Campbell.
If Robinson can carry this positive momentum throughout the rest of training camp and the preseason into the regular season, then the Jaguars could have one of the best left sides of the O-Line in football. The combination of Cam Robinson at LT, Andrew Norwell at LG, and Brandon Linder at C should instill fear in the hearts of defensive coordinators around the league - that is if Robinson continues to show progress.
