Auburn left tackle to go pro
Auburn left tackle Greg Robinson reached a decision to the question many coveted college stars get asked repeatedly through the season: stay for his junior season or declare for the NFL Draft?
After a dominant sophomore season of protecting quarterback Nick Marshall and helping Auburn achieve the No. 1 rushing offense in college football, Robinson will be blocking for a professional quarterback next year and enter the draft in May.
"This was a touch decision, but I have decided to declare for the NFL Draft," he said on Twitter.
NFL analysts project the third-year sophomore to go in the middle of the first round, so he's due for a massive first-year contract.
CBS Sports' Rob Rang has him going sixth overall to the Falcons while Dane Brugler projects 13th overall to the Rams.
"Greg played a big part in our success this season and I appreciate everything he did as an Auburn Tiger during his career," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said in a statement. "He has a bright future ahead of him at the next level and we wish him nothing but the best."
Robinson will be hard to replace, but War Eagle Insider also wishes him nothing but success in his future.
