Yeah. If we took Robinson at 23, I'd be very happy.
Robinson has some concerns similar to Flowers coming out  
est1986 : 2/17/2017 3:52 pm : link
Technique etc But he is a monster physical specimen with a lot of power and athleticism like Flowers coming out, hence the comparison. But he is being called a Guard in the NFL, Flowers was called a Tackle, maybe both are better at Guard, who knows, I'd be glad to have Cam if he is the pick.. I think he is less technically flawed than Flowers and I think he is a better prospect coming out, my major concern is his off the field issues which are more serious than others.. He gets caught with a gun in NY he is done, this isn't "The South".
