Oklahoma G Duke Robinson
DThomasReigns with the pick...
The Jaguars' offensive line was depleted last season and was a major factor in their extremely disappointing 2009 campaign. While they lost LT Khalif Barnes in free agency, they added LT Tra Thomas as a short-term gap filler.
The Jags panicked with the early run on WRs in the first round and reached for Percy Harvin. In doing so, they lost the opportunity to take a long-term solution at LT. This time they address the need on the line and take the clear cut #1 OG in the draft: Duke Robinson of Oklahoma.
Many of you are more than familiar with Robinson's ability from watching him in Big 12 play on Saturdays. For those who are not, here is an excerpt from FootballsFuture.com that is representative of most of the scouting reports on him.
"Robinson is a beast at guard. He has all the tools and the mentality to be a pro bowler for many years in the league. He has very good size and the strength to dominate defenders at the point of attack. He will drive his man off the ball and clear out consistent running lanes. Robinson is not just a mauler though, as he has impressive agility for a guard. He quickly gets into his stance and easily adjusts to his mans moves, and keeps them in front of him. He also has the mobility to get out and pick up blockers on the move. Robinson is mean on the field and is always trying to find someone to hit or block until the whistle blows. He may actually have the physical ability to slide out to tackle in the NFL, making him even more attractive."
