NFL Draft Rumors: Atlanta Falcons holding private workout with Greg Robinson


The Atlanta Falcons pick sixth overall in the NFL Draft this May and already they’re taking a look at what they can do with that pick to ensure they aren’t picking in the top 10 of next year’s draft against their own will.

One of the names that has been recently kicked around is South Carolina star Jadeveon Clowney but another name that is going to draw attention is Auburn offensive lineman Greg Robinson. Atlanta will be having Robinson in for a workout in the near future.

 

Atlanta needs to make sure Matt Ryan stays healthy and protected and drafting the best offensive lineman in the class is a good way to go. It’s likely that the Falcons are calling in Robinson because they have already looked at Texas A&M tackle Jake Matthews and want to compare the two.

Either way, it’s looking like Atlanta is seriously considering offensive line help with their first pick.
