With the 35th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected former Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson.
Robinson, the third player off the board at his position, started every game of his career protecting the blind side of Nick Saban’s quarterbacks, earning consensus All-American honors last season.
Though Robinson provides real strength and athleticism at the position, he’s said to struggle at times with balance, attempting to simply muscle defenders rather than run and pass block with proper technique.
It’s one of the reasons he was drafted behind former Utah tackle Garrett Bolles (Denver Broncos, No. 20 overall) and former Wisconsin tackle Ryan Ramcyzk (New Orleans Saints, No. 32).
On the surface, new head coach Doug Marrone, general manager David Caldwell and executive VP Tom Coughlin seem clearly invested in improving one of the NFL’s worst offensive lines the last few years.
