BCS Championship Game loss makes 2014 NFL draft decision harder for Greg Robinson

Greg Robinson said he would have to consider his family’s financial situation when deciding whether or not to leave Auburn after his redshirt sophomore season for the 2014 NFL draft, but after losing the BCS Championship Game to Florida State, his decision became much harder, according to Joel A. Erickson.

“I wanted this win, just to leave Auburn on a positive note,” Robinson said. “The loss made the decision harder, but at the end of the day, I’m going to do what’s best for me and my family.”

Robinson is a dominating run blocker at his left tackle position and the 6-5, 320 pound dancing bear has been one of the fastest risers on draft boards after he got better and better each game and profiles as a top-10 pick, if not a top-five pick.

NFL Media Network’s Daniel Jeremiah wrote after the game that Robinson was the most dominating player in the Rose Bowl on Monday night and “as talented as any blocker in college football.”

Underclassmen have until Jan. 15 to declare for the NFL draft and Robinson says a decision is coming ‘real soonl.

He received a first round grade form the NFL draft advisory board and considering how high he is likely to be drafted it would be a surprise to see him come back to The Plains.
