Leading up to the NFL Draft, the top draft prospects are interviewed from multiple media sources and we can get flooded with cookie cutter, boring answers. When players are asked about what team they would prefer to play for, the most likely answer is that they will be happy to play in the NFL.
For Auburn Tigers offensive tackle Greg Robinson, that isn’t the case.
If Robinson, who is flying up draft boards and now considered by many to be the top tackle in the draft class, gets his wish, then he will be the No. 1 overall pick of the Houston Texans or anyone willing to trade in to that spot.
“I think it would matter to anybody,” Robinson said, via AL.com. “As high as I can go, that’s my goal. I gave it my all. Hopefully the highest — well the No. 1 pick, hopefully they’ll take me. I always want the best for myself and I felt I worked for it so wherever I go, that’s where I go.”
It isn’t likely that Robinson would leapfrog one of the top quarterbacks or fellow SEC standout Jadeveon Clowney for the honors of being the No. 1 overall pick, but becoming the premium player at his position would still be an accomplishment that he should be proud of.
