On the first night of the NFL Draft the Jaguars selected one of the most dynamic running backs to enter the draft in recent memory. Their selection at four overall, Leonard Fournette, possesses an extremely rare combination of size and speed. But even the best running backs need a solid offensive line.
The Jaguars traded up one pick from 35 to 34 to secure their pick. In order to do so they traded their 35th pick and their 6th round pick (187 overall) in this years draft to the Seahawks.
Enter Cam Robinson. The Jaguars have struggled to run block over the last several years and are regularly at the bottom of the NFL rushing list. Cam Robinson will be able to come in and compete immediately at left tackle.
Robinson is a physical specimen out of Alabama that earned All SEC honors as a junior and was also awarded the Outland Trophy. At 6'6'' tall and 322 lbs. Robinson projects to be a force in the run game and a real road grader. He'll need to improve as a pass protector if he hopes to start for the Jaguars at left tackle in 2017.
Stay tuned for more!
