Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson really turned heads at the combine. Scouts, coaches and GMs saw first-hand why he won’t escape being a top-five pick. He flashed his athleticism, strength and speed, running a 4.92 at 330-plus pounds. That’s a big man moving!

Auburn running back Tre Mason also turned heads. He ran a better than expected 4.5 40-yard dash, and really looked good in the individual workouts. No doubt Mason helped his draft stock.

  • Connor Shaw has tested very well, looks to be right near the top in each of the categories above. I watched a little bit yesterday, he looked really good throwing to the WRs. That is tough for a QB which is why we see many QBs not throw until their senior day, as it is tough to throw to different receivers with varying levels of speed. Have to believe that Connor, based on his performance, has improved his stock to a certain late round pick vs. a possible late round pick or undrafted free agent signing. He would be a perfect fit for a team with a spread type offense (SF, SEA, CAR).

  • Why aren’t Kevin Norwood and and Cyrus Kouandijo listed?

  • Very disappointing time for Anthony Johnson. I didn’t really think he’d run a 4.8 like he supposedly did in high school, but to run a 5.24 had to shock somebody. It seemed like he got lazy at LSU. May be wrong, though. I also see where Landry had a rough combine. Hopefully, his pro day will be better, but Beckham put himself in a good position.

  • Henry Josey, God Bless You. Go make the SEC proud and Missouri more. Marcus Lucas, you earned it, take it.
