3. Greg Robinson, LT
If this were 2014, all eyes would be on Greg Robinson as fans wondered if they’d be seeing the start of a Hall of Fame career.
Well, it hasn’t worked out for Robinson, who’s failed to live up to expectations as the former No. 2 overall pick in the same draft that yielded the Browns Justin Gilbert and Johnny Manziel.
Robinson has a chance to salvage his career with the Browns as the organization searches for a replacement for Joe Thomas.
Shon Coleman appears to be the guy the Browns are going to give the first-team reps to, but the Auburn product still has a lot to prove to earn the job, which leaves the door open for Robinson.
Robinson got second-team reps at left tackle on his first day of training camp, with rookie Austin Corbett getting second-team reps at guard.
Draft analysts buzzed over Robinson’s physical abilities coming out of college with the assumption he’d turn into a technically sound finished product.
It never happened, though.
Talent can’t be taught, but the technical stuff can be hammered into a player’s head through coaching. If offensive line coach Bob Wylie salvages Robinson, the man deserves a seven-figure raise considering what elite free-agent left tackles earn on the open market.
