Greg Robinson “Frustrated”
In a conversation with ESPN.com’s Nick Wagoner, Greg Robinson admits that this offseason has been “frustrating”. He is making the move from a starting bookend left tackle in college with the Auburn Tigers to left guard with the St. Louis Rams, a position he hasn’t played since high school. Robinson will eventually be the Rams starting left tackle but for his rookie season he should be an All-Pro run blocker on the inside.
However, so far this offseason he hasn’t seen the improvement he would have liked to and openly acknowledged his disappointment to Mr. Wagoner.
It’s frustrating that I’m not up to pace right now because the playbook is more intense and things are changing but once I get back to where I’m comfortable, things will calm down and I can be myself out there.
Greg Robinson went on to say,
I didn’t know what to expect, honestly. I put a lot of pressure on myself because I like to challenge myself. It’s something I want to do and just stand out to the coaches and let them be comfortable with their choice.
Robinson has only participated in less than a dozen NFL practices and the team won’t put pads on until training camp in July. With Greg’s athleticism and desire to succeed, there is no doubt he will be ready for week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings.
